Driver Comments SS8 Finnskogen 2

60.       SEBASTIAN OGIER / JULIEN INGRASSIA

Very slippery on this stage. We could not go flat out but we try. Tires is good for last stage for me.

16.       JARI KETOMAA / MIKA STENBERG

OFF THE ROAD ON THIS STAGE

10.       HENNING SOLBERG / ILKA MINOR

Slippery, slippery, slippery. I think it’s going good, my driving is better, but everyone else is getting better grip so….

Halkigt, halkigt, halkigt. Jag tror det går bra, jag kör bättre i varje fall. Men alla andra har ju bättre grepp så…

37.       DANIEL SORDO CASTILLO / CARLOS DEL BARRIO CORRAL

STOPPED IN STAGE. Other drivers said he had open bonnet.

21.       MARTIN PROKOP / ZDENEK HRÛZA

Loose some concentration when I passed Ketomaa and Sordo but everthing is going good now.

52.       PATRIK SANDELL / STAFFAN PARMANDER

This was the worse stage for me in this years rally. I pushed hard, thought I go to fast and insted of going off the road I backed off. When I did this…I think I backed off to much. Going to change tires back to front.

Det var den värsta sträckan för mig i detta rally. Jag körde på och testade hårt, men istället för att åka av så tappade jag fart…  Jag ska byta plats på däcken.

5.         OTT TÄNAK / KULDAR SIKK

Comment: Had a sad, upbeaten face.

Good stages but lost concentration with the other drivers that stoped on the stage.

4.         PETTER SOLBERG / CHRIS PATTERSSON

Beginning to get very, very difficult in the stages. I try to push but it so easy to make misstake. I’m still withinn the saftyzone.

Det börjar bli väldigt, väldigt svårt på sträckorna nu. Jag försöker att köra på men det är så lätt att göra misstag. Jag ligger fortfarande inom säkerhetsmarginalen.

6.         EVGENY NOVIKOV / DENIS GIRAUDET

Little more ruds now on this stage.A little more sideways.

3.         JARI-MATTI LATVALA / MIIKA ANTTILA

Firs 15km good butthe next was so slippery.Hopefully this time would be ok. Good fightt now with Mikko after Seb went off road and lost time.

2.         MIKKO HIRVONEN / JARMO LEHTINEN

It’s so easy to make misstake and there is still a lot of the rally left.

Big fight for sure

1.         SÉBASTIEN LOEB / DANIEL ELENA

I’m irritatated that I went off on last stage. Now It’s flat out to see if we could get the others.

15.       MADS ØSTBERG / JONAS ANDERSSON

I lost the breaks toward the end off the stage. Don’t know why?. Otherowise it went well up til that time.

Jag tappade bromsarna mot slutet på sträckan. Vet inte varför. Förutom det gick det hyfsat.

64.       EYVIND BRYNILDSEN / CATO MENKERUD

I’m goingvwery much sideways. Something wrong and we need to check at service.

32.       CRAIG BREEN / GARETH ROBERTS

Took it  steady in here to not risk anything. Many gravel parts.

33.       PER-GUNNAR ANDERSSON / EMIL AXELSSON

Good stage. Did my best and we can’t do more. Tires…..is tires….same for all. We see what we could do for the last stage.

Bra sträcka för mig. Jag gör mitt bästa och vi kan inte göra mer. Vad gäller däcken så är det ju samma för alla. Vi ska se vad vi kan göra på sista sträckan
