Driver Comments SS4 Kirkenær

19.       RICHARD GÖRANSSON / ANDERS FREDRIKSSON

We hit a snow wall here and get snow in ventilation. The frontscreen fogged up and I could not see anything. Not good.

Vi körde på en snövall och fick in snö i ventilationen. Sen fick jag imma på framrutan och såg ingenting. Inte bra alls…

8.         MICHAL SOLOWOW / MACIEK BARAN

”Thumbs Up”

7.         NASSER AL ATTIYAH / GIOVANNI BERNACCHINI

Try to build confidence all the time. New car and I’m learning all the time. But I happy and still in the race.

12.       ARMINDO ARAUJO / MIGUEL RAMALHO

Twisty and strange strange…did not ”understand” it. I slide to much and lost time.

60.       SEBASTIAN OGIER / JULIEN INGRASSIA

Not happy with my driving. Goes a little bit to much sideways. Just going on and do some small changes with set up during the day.

16.       JARI KETOMAA / MIKA STENBERG

Very difficult to get the proper grip on this stage. The Dmack tires is working good but the could take even more snow. Car is fine with good balance.

10.       HENNING SOLBERG / ILKA MINOR

Right now I’m really stuggle with my driving. I don’t get anything right. Several thing is wrong so we have a lot to do. Change them as we go along.

Jag får jobba med min körning just nu. Ingenting funkar, men jag får försöka ändra på det under resans gång

37.       DANIEL SORDO CASTILLO / CARLOS DEL BARRIO CORRAL

I don’t like this type of stages. Narrow, twisty. Difficult to know if it’s me or the car wich not working, when you don’t get the right feeling.

21.       MARTIN PROKOP / ZDENEK HRÛZA

This was something completely different again. Setup on the car is good.

52.       PATRIK SANDELL / STAFFAN PARMANDER

I was a little bit to agressive in here. It’s so easy to make a big misstake so we need to calm down.

Jag var lite för aggresiv här. Det är så lätt att göra ett stort misstag så vi behöver lugna ner oss lite.

4.         PETTER SOLBERG / CHRIS PATTERSSON

Spun in stage and lost 10 sec. Not happy at all. I just need to calm down and forget about this and take next stage.

Snurrade på sträckan och tappade 10 sekunder. Inte bra alls. Nu måste vi glömma detta och ta oss an nästa sträcka.

6.         EVGENY NOVIKOV / DENIS GIRAUDET

Had e ”quick” off. It’s so easy to get stuck in these kind of Stages.

3.         JARI-MATTI LATVALA / MIIKA ANTTILA

Quite twisty and you need to be precise maybe also be ”calm” almos mentaly prepare yourself for these kind of SS.

2.         MIKKO HIRVONEN / JARMO LEHTINEN

Still long way to go. No time to gain here only loose.Next SS is better.

1.         SÉBASTIEN LOEB / DANIEL ELENA

Understearing problems this morning but it’s getting better. Easy to hit somethings in here.

15.       MADS ØSTBERG / JONAS ANDERSSON

Not so easy. Some understearing problems. The setup for the car is not for these kind of stages.

Inte så enkelt. Har problem med understyrning, Inställningarna på bilen är inte gjorda för den här typen av sträckor.

64.       EYVIND BRYNILDSEN / CATO MENKERUD

I try to be ”neat” and maybe I was a little bit to much agressive. Like lottery.

Jag var kanske lite för aggresiv på sträckan. Det var lite av ett lotteri.

32.       CRAIG BREEN / GARETH ROBERTS

Lot of places to get stuck in these stages. More changes with setup to do later.

33.       PER-GUNNAR ANDERSSON / EMIL AXELSSON

I hate this kind of stages. I just want to forget about this and go to the next.

Jag hatar den här typen av ströckor. Jag vill bara glömma det här och gå vidare…

34.       ALISTER MCRAE / WILLIAM HAYES

First time in Sweden in a long time. Feel a little bit rusty. But ok this morning.

49.       PONTUS TIDEMAND / G BERGSTEN

Hard to find traction. Handling is better on the car in the forrest stages.


Det var svårt att hitta fäste. Det är betydligt lättare i skogen att kontrollera den här bilen.

31.       HAYDEN PADDON / JOHN KENNARD

Had an off at the last stage and had that in mind. Tricky.

35.       MACIEJ OLEKSOWICZ / ANDRZEJ OBREBOWSKI

We like this kind of stages for the spectators. Still need some more time in the car to be faster….and first of all in the faster sections of SS.

62.       ANDREAS MIKKELSEN / OLA FLOENE

More a Micky Mouse stage and not easy. Car is working fine but we spun in SS 2 and cought up with a another car in SS3…not good.

En “Musse Pigg-sträcka” och inte enkelt. Bilen är bra, men vi snurrade på SS2 och kom ikapp en annan bil på SS3. Inte bra.

65.       ANDERS GRØNDAL / TROND SVENDSEN

The car has run on 3 cylinders and also a lot of understearing problems.

Vi kör på 3 cylindrar och har även problem med understyrning
