Day: 2 Flash N°: 8
Special stage: Yeşilbelde 1 Distance: 34.24 km
Weather: Warm and sunny
Road conditions: Damp in places but mainly dry

Car 1. OGIER/INGRASSIA
“Part of the game. I was struggling with grip. I had no traction. I assure you we were
pushing. The cleaning is very big today.”

Car 3. SUNINEN/MARKKULA
“A lot of loose gravel and wheel spin in third and fourth gear. That was really smooth. Not
rough at all but a lot of loose gravel.”

Car 4. MIKKELSEN/JAEGER-SYNNEVAAG
“I have some moments early in the stage. My pace notes were really aggressive. After
that I had to go down a bit on the attack.”

Car 5. NEUVILLE/GILSOUL
Damaged the suspension on the stage with the front left damper punching through the
bonnet after he was fastest at the split times. He managed to crawl to the
stage finish. He lost 3min 32sec. “I don’t know. Something has broken. We did not hit
anything. Unlucky.”

Car 6. PADDON/MARSHALL
“It’s like a different rally to yesterday, a lot more loose and no rocks to avoid on the road. It
will be interesting to see how it develops. They are probably a bit too twisty for my driving
style.”

Car 7. LATVALA/ANTTILA
“The car does not turn. I am struggling with the turning. Not happy.”

Car 8. TÄNAK/JARVEOJA
“I don’t think so (gamble – one spare tyre), it is a lot smoother than yesterday. We would
like to perform. It’s pretty hard to enjoy. I don’t have full control yet.”

Car 9. LAPPI/FERM
Spun and stalled around 13km into the stage. “Same problem as always before. The
stalling, it does not allow the down shift and it does not rotate the engine and restart.”

Car 10. ØSTBERG/ERIKSEN
Stopped after 24km with reported turbo issues.

Car 11. BREEN/MARTIN
“I heard a pace note wrong and heard a right instead of a left and had to spin the car back
up the road and turn. Not great.”
