Sat 08:46 - SS5: Radstrom


Rally Sweden winner Radstrom through now, 34.1sec slower than Franceschi. "It was a really tough one, we need to meet the challenge!" Nicely motivational from Radstrom



Sat 08:45 - SS5: Callum Devine


"Happy enough, difficult to see where we've lost time in the notes on occasion. Hopefully we'll be quicker this afternoon!" That was Devine after SS5, his time of 25m37.2s is 28.6sec slower than the leader but he's moved into third overall.



Sat 08:44 - SS5: Emil Bergkvist


The Swede is through now in a time of 25m46.6s - 38s slower than Franceschi. "The stage for me was quite okay to be honest, but it seems that I'm not fast enough. I do what I can do, the other guys can go faster and so can I!" Can't fault him for his confidence.



Sat 08:41 - SS5: Franceschi


Franceschi is also through to the end of the stage now with a 25m08.6s - 3.5sec faster than Folb. That'll have eaten into the latter's lead in the standings. He said: "At the end the tyres were very odd and very difficult to stay on the right line. It's okay though we have the best time for the moment."



Sat 08:39 - SS5: Folb


Folb is the first of the JWRC Ford Fiesta R2 drivers to come through to the end of the stage. He's set a 25m12.1s.


Sat 08:33 - SS5: Ciamin


"It was difficult, not great." Nothing to say for Nicolas Ciamin after his time of 23m45.8s - 46.5sec slower than Veiby.



Sat 08:31 - SS5: Folb


The JWRC field is deep into the stage now with Terry Folb the first to make it to the third split in a time of 15m47s




Sat 08:30 - SS5: Hiroki Arai


Arai has stopped 27.8km in to the stage.




Sat 08:27 - SS5: Pierre-Louis Loubet


"I think I lose some time at the end of the stage, but the car is better than yesterday and we try to continue like this." Loubet is smiling like anything after his 23m01.2s to go just 1.9sec slower than Veiby



Sat 08:26 - SS5: Veiby


"I found some really nice rhythm and I just kept on going." Ole Christian Veiby said. He definitely did find some rhythm, he's the first WRC 2 entry to break the 23m barrier with a 22m59.3s - 10.5sec faster than Kopecky.



Sat 08:24 - SS5: Bonato


Bonato is also through, he's 0.8sec slower than Kopecky. "A bit lucky! I made a mistake on a fast section and the road was like ice. This time is not so bad, we are like 1sec slower than Kopecky which is alright. I'm pushing quite hard."



Sat 08:23 - SS5: Kopecky


Jan Kopecky is the first of the WRC 2 field to come through the finish in a time of 23m09.8s "Yes it was a good start, the car is working well but the stage is tricky." A common theme emerging from the field about this new stage for 2018.



Sat 08:21 - SS5: Loeb


Loeb is the stage winner! A blistering time of 21m58.6s to go 1.4sec faster than Lappi. "Ok, yep. No problems at all, it was alright. I knew I could be fast." Concise comments from Loeb after that stage.



Sat 08:19 - SS5: Lefebvre


We're hearing Stephane Lefebvre is off the road at the 5.7km mark, both the crew are OK.



Sat 08:18 - SS5: Ogier


Rally leader Ogier has set a time now, and it is 4.5sec slower than Lappi. Let's see what he says: "Yeah it was good, I think everyone feels this stage is a tricky one. It wasn't full attack like yesterday but I still got through."



Sat 08:17 - SS5: Neuville


Neuville completes the stage now and he's logged a 22m05.1s - 5.1sec off Lappi's benchmark. "To be honest my pacenotes weren't too optimistic, I went wide a few times at the start and I had to push a little less for the rest of the stage."



Sat 08:15 - SS5: Meeke


Meeke comes close, but can't beat Lappi's time - 22m0.5s for him. "Yeah it was a wake up call! You have to be on your money, I lost a bit of rhythm in the middle but picked it back up again." He seems happy after the first test of the day.



Sat 08:13 - SS5: Tanak


"Yeah I had a problem, every time I touched the handbrake it stalled me. Notes could be better as well." That was what Tanak said as he came through the end of the stage in a time of 22m12.3s - 12.3sec behind.




Sat 08:11 - SS5: Lappi


A nice clean time for Lappi - 22mins exactly - 10.3sec faster than Mikkelsen "It went quite well. At points I thought the tyre was too hot but I think it was just the surface, it seemed to get better when the surface changed."



Sat 08:09 - SS5: Lefebvre


We're hearing Stephane Lefebvre has stopped in the Citroen C3 R5 5.7km into the stage. More information as we get it!



Sat 08:09 - SS5: Evans


A small stall for Evans coming out of a hairpin closing in to the end of the stage which has cost him a bit of time. He finishes in a time of 22m15.6s - 5.3sec slower than Mikkelsen. "Yeah the first half of the stage seemed good, the second half was narrower. Just stalled coming out of a hairpin, I used the handbrake and then the car stalled." Evans added.



Sat 08:07 - SS5: Sordo


Sordo sets the third fastest time on the stage, a 22m17.1s that is 6.8sec slower than Mikkelsen. "Difficult, very difficult." Not much to say for Dani after that stage.



Sat 08:06 - SS5: Loeb


Loeb update now and he has gone fastest of anyone through the first split, a 5m09.0s - 1.3sec faster than Meeke.



Sat 08:05 - SS5: Latvala


Latvala is the next through to the end of the stage with a time of 22m13.4s - 3.1sec slower than Mikkelsen. What did he have to say at stage end? "It is not easy, the car is behaving itself now but the notes could have been better. The rear of the car is behaving now."



Sat 08:03 - SS5: Mikkelsen


Mikkelsen comes through 13.1sec faster than Bouffier! He's set the fastest time for now. He said: "It is so narrow and so fast, I have a lot of information in pacenotes but sometimes I was backing off because I didn't have them all in my head - there was a bit too much information in there for me."



Sat 08:01 - SS5: Bouffier


Bouffier puts the first time on the board for SS5 with a 22m23.4s "It was good, very nice stage. I don't know if I'm fast or not. Very clean stage so far, a few corners are damp but not too bad."



Sat 08:00 - SS5: Latvala


Latvala has come through the final split at a time of 17m38.5s which is 3.6sec slower than Mikkelsen


Sat 07:58 - SS5: Meeke


Kris Meeke is the fastest person through the first split so far with a 5m10.3s - 0.7sec faster than Lappi




Sat 07:22 - SS5 guide

Cagnano – Pino – Canari 1, 35.61km Saturday’s opener crosses Corsica’s narrow northern tip from the east before winding down the west coast. After several hairpins at Cagnano, it climbs to the Serra pass before a descent punctuated with corners leads to Luri.

 

 

Wider roads bring higher speeds as the stage scales the Santa-Lucia pass before diving downhill to Pino. The second half follows narrow, twisty roads and after the villages of Barrettali and Canari, a final hairpin leads to the finish.
