To rallye-sport.fr: “We’ll change the differential in service.” On eWRC at the end of the rally: "Disappointing but it happens, there is up and down... We have differential issues today."

    Btw, most likely Ciamin was unreachable, but Bonato lost 23s to Gilbert (from a 26s advantage) on Saturday 1st loop and only 8s on the second; on this interview https://www.rallye-sport.fr/bonato-c...atastrophique/ he explains that he wrongly choosed R11 tyres for the morning loop, while everyone else took rain tyres.
    about Bonato .....he was faster at first 3 stages.At rest 11 stages was slower.I dont think that he had wrong tyres for 11 stages for 2 days.
    Also he lost at first day 2nd loop 3 night stages 20 sec to Gilbert.

    about Levebvre,as i said when complaining with diff problems was loosing,but was loosing same amount of time with fixed diffs.
    He said that at miday service they will change diffs.After service he was loosing again.At some stages strangely diffs working and was very close to top stage times.

    Actually no; he only lost 4s to Gilbert on Friday 2nd loop (ending leg one 26s over him). Anyway, Bonato is known for his fairplay and in the interview he congratules Ciamin and Gilbert for being fast drivers and for not making any mistake on such tricky stages, besides recognizing that the Polo is already competitive. He also considers this P3 as a decent result, only regretting, while assuming as a silly mistake, that wrong tyre choice on Saturday morning.

    yes my bad Gilbert was faster at stage 5-6 while Bonato faster at stage 4.
    What i want to say is that Bonato cant have wrong tyres at all loops.We see that except the first loop of 3 stages,he was at rest loops slower.Can he made wrong choices at all loops? i doubt.
