STAGE FLASH 14
Car 1. OGIER/INGRASSIA
“For sure, it’s not a flat out push. We try and control the lead. Very slow and sandy and low grip.”
Car 5. MEEKE/MARSHALL
“I’m okay. I am just trying to conserve the Manufacturers’ now. That’s all we have.”
Car 6. SORDO/DEL BARRIO
“It was really bad with hard tyres. A big mistake. All the stage is like a beach. No traction and no grip.
For me, it was clear for soft tyres.”
Car 8. TÄNAK/JÄRVEOJA
“I do as well as possible. The stage is so slow that it is difficult to make a difference.” The Estonian
closed to within 5.8 seconds of Evans in second place….
Car 11. NEUVILLE/GILSOUL
“It was okay. We had a good clean run and I am trying to play with the settings. The car is working
better for me when there are ruts in the road and I can push in the corners.”
Car 33. EVANS/MARTIN
“I struggled a lot with such low grip. I was trying but I could not do more.”
Car 89. MIKKELSEN/JAEGER-AMLAND
“Very slippery and a,lot of sand. The beginning was okay but, from 12 or 13km, a lot of sand. I had a
good stage to be honest. Hard to do anymore.”
Car 44. HELLER/DIAZ
Stopped 12km into the stage for a short time and then starting moving again.
