Midday Quote, Rally De Espana, Section Five


Robert Kubica (9th) said:

“The rear driveshaft broke before the start of the first stage this morning [SS8]. We only had two-wheel-drive, but we managed to make it through all of the stages and it shouldn’t be a big drama to get the car fixed in service.

Midday Quotes, Rally De Espana, Section Five


“This morning has been really good. We’ve made some small changes to the car since France and everything is working well. Also I was never so confident with the old tyre on Tarmac – I found them a little too precise and it was difficult to judge where the grip would be and how hard you could push. This one works much better for me.

RallyRACC Catalunya – Rally de España (23-26/10/2014) – Day 1


Before the start of this, the only mixed-surface event on the calendar, Mads Østberg had warned that the first day on gravel would set the tone for his rally.

The Norwegian managed to combine speed and consistency, despite the hanging dust which held him up more than any other driver.

Second fastest behind Kris Meeke on SS2, Mads lost several seconds on the following stage when he caught up with his team-mate after the second of his two punctures.

Ogier Ahead Of Latvala - Volkswagen One-Two Lead In Spanish Dust


One nil in the Spanish showdown for the drivers' and co-drivers' world championship: Leaders of the standings Sébastien Ogier/Julien Ingrassia (F/F) took the lead on the first day of the Rally Spain. For the following drivers, the clouds of dust on the windless special stages counterbalanced the first driver's usual disadvantage of having to clear the gravel stages of loose gravel. Ogier/Ingrassia's Volkswagen team-mates Jari-Matti Latvala/Miikka Anttila (FIN/FIN) were among the best to defy the limited visibility. They ended day one of the twelfth race of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) season in second place. Latvala/Anttila lost 36.6 seconds to their direct rivals in the battle for the drivers' and co-drivers' world championship on the first 141.74 of a total of 372.96 kilometres of special stages. Andreas Mikkelsen/Ola Fløene (N/N) are a further seven tenths of a second behind in fourth place – just 0.1 seconds behind Mads Østberg (Citroën).

Midday Quote Rally De Espana, Section Three


Robert Kubica (6th) said:

“The conditions have been very difficult and it was not an easy first stage [SS2] having to get back into the rhythm of gravel rallying. The last gravel event we did was Rally Australia and since then we had France test, France rally and Spain test on Tarmac, so I was a little surprised at times. We had one moment in which I lost the line in a corner and on this loose surface it was very slippery.

Mikko Hirvonen (4th) said:

“The visibility is changing so much. In some places you can’t see anything at all and you have to slow down, and in others it’s not really a problem. It all depends on the surface, but when it’s bad, it’s pretty bad! It can hang on one corner, then there’s nothing. You start to trust that there’s no dust, and then it’s back again so it’s really tricky out there.

Bright Start For Volkswagen In Spain


Short, sweet, skilful: Volkswagen made a good start to the Rally Spain. At the foot of the famous Montjuïc hill in Barcelona, Andreas Mikkelsen/Ola Fløene (N/N) clocked the fastest time on the only special stage laid out on the narrow terraces. Sébastien Ogier/Julien Ingrassia (F/F) were second fastest, with Jari-Matti Latvala/Miikka Anttila (FIN/FIN) fourth on the opening stage. With world-famous architecture lining the route through the heart of Barcelona, the rally stars were given a rapturous welcome from an enthusiastic crowd who had turned out to watch stage one of the twelfth round of this season’s FIA World Rally Championship (WRC). The World Rally Cars, including the three Polo R WRC, passed the Barcelona Pavilion, which was designed by Mies van der Rohe and built for the 1929 International Exposition, crossed the famous Plaça de Carles Buïgas with its fountain, and drifted beneath the National Art Museum.
