    lol

    Q:
    What do you know about Barum Czech Rally Zlín? Did you get any information from your Hyundai team-mates, given that Thierry Neuville and Andreas Mikkelsen have both started here in the past?

    DS:
    The only information I had was 'don’t go there'! Everybody talks about it being a difficult rally. I can see it has difficult stages. They're really nice but for fighting for victories and driving really fast, it's quite difficult. It looks like with this [rainy] weather it will even more difficult and also with the local specialists. Jan [Kopecký] is really, really fast here. It will be a big challenge.

    Rain seems to be gone. The road is drying.

    Most of that happened on the same place where I was (Tommeke too). It's a very short cobblestone section. One of the very first historic cars ripped off the first cobblestone and that started a domino. In the end there was like 5-6 meters of missing cobblestones. The marshals kept removing the free ones but it was still growing larger and larger. Nearly all punctures happened here so did an accident of Brož.

    Watching videos of the Historics they were a bit crazy at times with cars lapping close behind each other while others were doing doughnuts for the fans. Is this a serious rally or a show ?

    There are two groups. Part of the historics drive only for show. Part is doing a normal rally. It's a tradition and there has never been an accident from that since 2006 when the city stage was first run.

    Small offs for Ingram and Jakeš according to Tommeke. I am on another place. Sordo looked quite slow honestly and the ALS sounded strange.

    By the way several Fabias with Vančík engine have really loud and nice sound!
