    Kajto had two punctures and damaged suspension. Let's hope for a better luck for him on the next stages.

    Veiby Ole Christian - problems with steering arm, loses 1 min
    Kajetanowicz Kajetan - stopped in stage, probably out with damaged suspension
    Tempestini Simone - stopped in stage, probably out of the rally
    Pieniazek - went off, but continues

    Good comparison would be to look at the times of Loubet on Azores and Canarias.

    Kajto showed some potential on SS5, otherwise disappointing, but then he was rarely the absolute quickest in ERC either.

    This is a double-edged sword. I can give You really a lot of examples where WRC2 (or even WRC) drivers failed against ERC ones - Barum regularly, Ypres regularly, this year's Canarias etc. There are very few who can jump into a different championship without any experience with it's stages, tyres, rules whatever and be on top immediately. Those who can are usually not sitting in R5 cars but in works WRC ones...

    Which were quite bad in both cases. But what does it prove?

    Actually I don’t think he was that bad, somewhat similar to his WRC2 performance so far. But if the level between the two championships was so different one would have expected him to perform relatively better in ERC.

    I do think the overall level in WRC2 is higher at the moment, but almost all due to the Skoda works team and their experienced drivers, plus Lefebvre maybe.

    Good job from Veiby yesterday, not to just give up, but to do a "field repair job" and continue.

    @OCVeiby: ������Glad to make it back to service, even with a huge time-loss. It's been challenging after midday service, on SS6 we damaged a wishbone and then the driveshaft went out. But we made it back, and will be fighting again tomorrow! #WRC2 #SkodaMotorsport https://twitter.com/OCVeiby/status/1...281089/photo/1

    Shows good fighting spirit!

    Today he wins again, and are climbing back up with 3 stage wins!

    Ciamin was much slower this morning, but he has been doing a great rally (P2 currently), considering his lack of experience in 4wd cars. Hope heíll manage to be on the final podium.

    Any photos or videos of Lefebvre issue?

    Veiby now up to 2nd in Sardinia.
    leads by 2,9 sec before the PS.

    Good job after the tech issues on friday.

    Perfect job by Kopecky in the other Skoda Motorsport car, now in 9th overall, and clear win in class.

    So now Pontus 3x 1st, 1x 2nd from 4 start. Jan 3x 1st from 3 starts. The only one who managed to take a victory from these two was Katsuta in Sweden.
