Kris Meeke has had a good run so far taking 3rd overall, but being chased by the Hyundai of Juho Hanninen. Next stage SS3 is a second running of the Lankamaa stage and goes live at 19:07 local time (CET +1)
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h53
    [SS2] Craig Breen (Ford) 5:18.9 "Very very tricky, the first stage was exceptionally tough. It is getting better now and we can try and find some more speed. I can carry so much more speed than it feels like. It will take a while but I am happy."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h52
    [SS2] Hayden Paddon (Hyundai) 5:11.7 "This one was certainly better, the first one we got caught in the bad weather. This one was better, but there is still a long way to go. These new stages tend to suit us better."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h48
    [SS2] Robert Kubica (Ford) 5:10.0 "You cannot compare against top drivers especially on this kind of road. We are trying to drive consistently. There is a lot to learn. We are very happy, is only two stages but I am pretty happy with my driving, I take no risks at all. The pace notes are good, I should believe in them."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h46
    [SS2] Juho Hanninen (Hyundai) 5:05.7 "Okay, still we lost, but it is not that easy now. Main thing is keeping the line and some times I was not able to do it. Main thing is to keep it smooth."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h45
    [SS2] Henning Solberg (Ford) 5:08.9 "Very very good, the car is good, I loved the rain on the last 9 kilometres!"
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h41
    [SS2] Martin Prokop (Ford) 5:18.0 "Absolutely no feeling with the grip. I try to go clean again. I have no experience with this, no experience with these conditions. The time is not bad compared with Elfyn, but it can be better. I do not know where is the limit. Very fast."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h39
    [SS2] Kris Meeke (Citroen) 5:07.5 "The first couple of kilometres you began to see a little but marbly, also there was a bit of mud appearing, coming up through the ground. Interesting, new stage, new notes for everybody."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h37
    [SS2] Thierry Neuville (Hyundai) 5:11.5 "I struggle with the condition and my pace notes are too slow, so i have to always overdrive with my pace notes and this is not good for my confidence."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h35
    [SS2] Mikko Hirvonen (Ford) 5:09.7 - Same time as Ostberg - "They (Latvala & Ogier) are really putting quite unbelievable speed, we try to hang on but they are pulling away. Stages are still in a perfect condition, one or two corners that are a bit slippy, but not 10-seconds slippy…"
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h33
    [SS2] Mads Ostberg (Citroen) 5:09.7 "I don't really understand it, it is going well, but the times are **** (not good)". - Not happy with his stage times and does not understand why.
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h30
    [SS2] Andreas Mikkelsen (Volkswagen) 5:08.1 "I am still a bit too cautious, in the fast I can still go faster. But we are building step by step. Let's see for the second run through Lankamaa if we can go faster. We take it stage by stage, I really don't trust the grip."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h29
    [SS2] Jari-Matti Latvala (Volkswagen) 5:02.5 - Again faster than Ogier by 2.2-seconds "Good start, very very good grip on the road, only one slippy braking. Really good grip all the time. I can see that it (rain) is not so good for the spectators but it is good for the drivers…"
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h27
    [SS2] Sebastien Ogier (Volkswagen) 5:04.7 "This one was very slippery with a lot of lose gravel so I am quite happy it is in wet condition. I was hoping for that, in the first one it was raining consistently."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 16h22
    SS2 is now live with Sebastien Ogier into the test...
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h48
    An interesting opening stage and it looks like being one of the first few cars on the road is a definite advantage. Next stage up is SS2 Jouhtikyla 10.36 kilometres and it goes live at 17:21 local time (CET+1)
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h46
    [SS1] Craig Breen (Ford) 12:11.7 "Definitely a baptism of fire… For some reason I cannot get a clean stage. It was like an absolute monsoon. But it is a long rally."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h44
    [SS1] Hayden Paddon (Hyundai) 11:50.7 "Caught the rain storm… For about 5-kilometres we could hardly see the road, but we are still here…"
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h42
    [SS1] Robert Kubica (Ford) 11:38.6 "It was not easy. Quite good stage to warm up. Only one junction I got in the line and got pulled into the side. We got some heavy rain 8-kilometres to the end. But okay."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h40
    [SS1] Juho Hanninen (Hyundai) 11:21.9 "Lost still some time, Jari-Matti had a good one! We have a lot of power but even so it takes some energy. Reasonable start." - Again commenting that the muddy surface is sucking the power.
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h38
    [SS1] Henning Solberg (Ford) 11:35.3 "It was okay. It is raining a lot, this is how it is, I am trying my best." - It's raining again reasonably heavily...
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h34
    [SS1] Martin Prokop (Ford) 11:43.7 "It was really difficult, you can feel the grip, you feel you can push a lot, but sometimes it is slippy like hell… This is the weekend to try some fast line. I think the time is not bad."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h32
    [SS1] Kris Meeke (Citroen) 11:19.0 "Really quite happy, the rain before the start of the stage was something else, luckily it cleared before we started the stage. What an incredible place to drive a rally car! Not so bad, but it is a really long long rally."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h29
    [SS1] Thierry Neuville (Hyundai) 11:34.0 "I did not have the perfect one, especially at the beginning I was too slow. I feel a lot of grip in the beginning, but it is taking a lot of the power. The road is getting more and more loose. Maybe I have to do a bit better myself." - Commenting that the mud is sapping the power from the car and not getting the forward momentum.
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h28
    [SS1] Mads Ostberg (Citroen) 11:29.0 "No worries, just a difficult stage. Struggling a bit to find a good grip level. The gravel colour is changing a lot and with it the grip level. I cannot do so much more. Some places for sure it is muddy and slippery. For sure I do not think it is getting faster."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h28
    [SS1] Mikko Hirvonen (Ford) 11:25.0 "Pretty good, it was a bit slippy in the end. It's okay, not too bad at all."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h23
    [SS1] Andreas Mikkelsen (Volkswagen) 11:30.5 "It's okay. It tried to keep a good speed, but there are so many places you can go so so fast… I tried my best. A clean run so far, I am quite happy with my run."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h22
    [SS1] Jari-Matti Latvala (Volkswagen) 11:17.3 - 3.1-seconds up on Ogier "It did help (the rain). In the first two corners it was slippy, but after that it was good. I could have gone faster after that, but you never know how much rain."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h21
    [SS1] Sebastien Ogier (Volkswagen) 11:20.4 "I could have been faster definitely, but it is raining and there were a couple of places with standing water, I was not flat out at this stage of the rally."
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h19
    There is intermittent rain on the stage so conditions are changeable...
  • Thu. 31.07.2014 / 15h18
    The first stage of the day is already live with Ogier into the test.
