    Friday was clean roads with little or no loose snow, Saturday first stage also clean roads, the rest much more loose snow. WJ with 9mm protrusion was a clear advantage there, easiest is to compare against Hänninen who was on same 7mm WRC tires all even and you can see that all others were closer especially on SS8 with alot of loose snow, than again long 9mm protrusion can actually be a disadvantage on clean ice roads as the stud starts to sway a lot faster when the rubber warms up.
    But I wasn`t there so can`t verify what tires who was on at what point, so this is pure specualtion

    If so Oliver would´ve lost more time Saturday after 1st service, wouldn´t he? Snowy stage starting early. Same conditions as Teemu of course, but to the rest of the field of fast drivers in RC2 cars.

    However I could also reccon Oliver and his team is as smart as we do think. He did test his feeling on Friday. Very important to get the right set up and gain experience. He is a fast learner and a smart team, so Saturday they could step up and go as fast as they could, better knowing car and set ups. And it finally showed where Olivers status is. Winning Saturday by some 35-40 secs.

    Asunmaa said that he lost totally around 30s on Saturdays 2 stages because Veiby had problems...

    Of course this isn´t fully true and maybe Oliver also had some "dust" problems.

    Because it was Oliver´s 1st rally with Hyundai, I believe that he was not attacking 100%, especially on Friday.

    What I meant is Oliver took full advantage of the 9mm studs in the snowy conditions, it looks as like the new WJ tire suits full snow alot better than clean roads as seen from the results the drivers who got the new tire suddenly were alot faster on the last 2-3 stages.
    However it does not explain the time loss for Friday.
    And just to be clear I am in no way saying Oliver had a bad rally, especially Saturday he showed the difference between a full time rally driver and a national rally driver..
