    @MadsOstberg

    Ending the day with a stage win and 2nd overall. Result wise happy, considering our start position. Feeling uncomfortable in the car. We have a lot of work to do if we want to be competitive in @RallySweden 2 weeks feels like a very short time now. #RallyHadeland #fightingviking

    No point in looking at the results from this rally, got so bored i left after one stage that took nearly 2hours to run 63 cars....
    Police running 0 car went off and delayed SS2 by more than 1 hour so lots of snow on the road since they plowed 3 hours earlier.
    Mads had the softest springs and dampers but it was still too hard and all international classes are using the wide tyre from this year.

    Could be, but forum experts also told us there was nothing wrong with the C3 R5 and that it was just Lefebvre letting it down last year.

    Perhaps I shouldn't be so mean to Mads, he wasn't so moany after Citroen gave him a redemption last year and he did a solid job for them. But on the other hand, shouldn't we expect an experienced WRC driver to be dominating in WRC2, unless the car is really that terrible?

    No, we should not, because WRC2 top level is often faster than WRC mediums. Question is the end result, where experience comes into play.

    Guess this says a lot. Suspension matters for handling. Let´s hope for a good result in Rally Sweden.

    Wasn't this the problem with the WRC last year as well when he first tested it on snow? I remember him developing a completely different setup that worked pretty well afterwards during the rally.

    After seeing Toyota being ridicularized even before start competing and Citroen asked to leave the WRC while living a troubled time, aparently the only expertise required on this forum to judge rally teams and the cars they make is to have a cynical mind and to know the meaning of the word crap.

    The C3 R5 has already proved to be a winner on tarmac and to have a strong potencial on gravel, which can certainly be confirmed by experienced drivers like Ostberg. For the first time it was used in the snow and despite Ostberg remarks the overall result (and SS’s times) seems encouraging. Fingers crossed for Ostberg/Eriksen and DG Sport!
