Citroen fall foul of Panzerplatte

24.08.2019: Sadly, two punctures picked up within the daunting army base, the place tyres are on the mercy of the numerous sharp stones, left Sbastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia down i

Sadly, two punctures picked up within the daunting army base, the place tyres are on the mercy of the numerous sharp stones, left Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia down in 8 place this night, their hopes of a podium all however long past. In the meantime, Esapekka Lappi and Janne Ferm ended the day 7th general, surroundings a couple of occasions that mirrored the development made at the C3 WRC’s tarmac set-up.


The leg involving phases within the Baumholder army base is continuously decisive – and invariably unforgiving – and may also be one thing of a lottery. The 2019 rally proved to be no exception to this rule. After a morning loop within the Saarland nation-state, the place the gaps remained very small, this afternoon’s phases – hung on extraordinarily abrasive concrete roads suffering from sharp stones which can be ordinarily utilized by tanks from the army base – equipped an ideal deal extra drama.

After having vigorously defended their 3rd position at the morning loop, while nonetheless no longer being completely proud of the set-up, Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia sadly noticed their excellent success get away them within the afternoon. A gradual puncture at the first run on Panzerplatte (41.17km) intended they misplaced their 3rd place, however they have been nonetheless simply 5 tenths off the rostrum and three.1s off 2nd position.

With an stepped forward set-up for the general loop of the day, the French workforce held actual hopes of regaining a podium spot. Sadly, they first of all dropped time via stalling on SS14. Then every other puncture value them greater than 1m 30s at the repeat of Panzerplatte, a sour blow after recording a favorable first cut up. Down in 8th general this night, the six-time global champions will now center of attention on seeking to ranking as many issues as imaginable.

Esapekka Lappi and Janne Ferm made a powerful get started this morning, claiming the second one quickest time on SS9, simply 0.5s off the lead tempo, and shutting to inside simply 4.6s of 6th position. Alternatively, at the subsequent level, the Finns have been fairly past due at the brakes on a filthy segment at a junction and resulted in a spin that value them 20.1s. Even though they dropped to 8th position, they did not lose center, surroundings every other 2nd quickest time at the subsequent level.

Additionally they used the remainder of the leg to paintings with the workforce at the set-up of the C3 WRC for long run occasions. Paintings that noticed them report a good 5th quickest time on the second one cross on Panzerplatte (+9.9s over 41.17km).

With 79.50 kilometres of timed phases nonetheless to move, together with two runs on Grafschaft (28.06km) in the course of the Mosel vineyards, Sunday will probably be no walk in park on what is ready to be an strangely lengthy ultimate leg.

Obviously, they have been unfortunate in falling sufferer to the very unpredictable nature of the Panzerplatte level.

As our possibilities of a powerful end were dealt a significant blow, we’re now going to run some in-competition trying out to check out and stay bettering the set-up of the auto, as a result of we clearly need to do higher.”
