    Its also his first rally with a new codriver and I think he first drove the car only a day before the rally.

    All the top bunch of WRC drivers are in WRC for a reason I think!

    I would be careful with such conclusion. One could say that based on Italian results Peugeot has the best R5 car while that's not true clearly.

    His Peugeot is not up to date and is missing 30hp or something like that.
    Still I trust that he can pick his pace up from today and finish the rally with better times on Saturday.
    But one thing is sure, he has alot of things to learn in tarmac, on gravel and snow he is already super fast.
    he is complaining about not good setup,and that's is visible from some clips we ve seen.

    Paddon especially impressive on the night stages. He has surprised me a bit.

    That's already impossible. Rovanpera had a puncture again on SS8, lost nearly 4 minutes and dropped down to the 19th position overall. In the meantime Andreucci won 3 stages in a row and leads the rally.

    Rain started in Sanremo town and occasionally also in the hills but most of the roads are still dry. Hard to choose tyres now.

    I'm not following the rally (bussines trip during weekend-grrrrr..), but when I opend the results, I was expecting Paddon to be in a safe lead. After all he is a WRC driver....local rally should be a "walk in the park" for him. Not to be behind 52 year old driver. So, Andreucci still a surprise for me.

    Try currently (12:30) but the dry weather is all the more incomprehensible.
    dry path although drips on the evidence. The next test, the longer, has some wet traits, especially the final descent. But situation all the more uncertain.
    It is about to start the last act of this 64.Rallye Sanremo which remains very uncertain and treacherous for the weather pattern. Crews have chosen all the more variegated rubber solutions, although the majority has chosen a solution that does not require a lot of rain
