Honoured to get the Colin’s Crest award 🥇 for longest jump of 41m. But... as a great Irish sports philosopher once wrote “jumps are for show, corners are for dough” so we’re aiming for the dough in Mexico 🇲🇽!! #KM5

‪Well done lads @otttanak and @martinjarveoja , you kept it on the island all weekend! Great result for you and our team @TGR_WRC, now leading both championships. But we are getting used to the Yaris pretty quickly!! ‬

‪Another P6! Tough old rally, after the first day we were always going to struggle with road position. But it’s two decent finishes at the start of the season with a new co-driver @sebmarshall , car and team @tgr_wrc so have to be happy with that. 👍🇸🇪 ‬

Well we gave it everything today, in the morning when the roads were frozen we had good speed and moved to challenge for a podium. But then in the afternoon the conditions changed and we had to just manage our position. I’d obviously prefer to be higher up at the sharp end but I have to be patient, we don’t have the knowledge of these conditions.
But we did jump the furthest at Colin’s Crest if that’s any consolation! We will just try and keep her lit again tomorrow. #KM5

Our road position today has meant we’ve got some tough conditions and you just can’t push when it’s like this. We will keep chipping away but there will be plenty more opportunities this season for a big push! I did give her a good shove over Colin’s Crest though 👍

It’s been a really good morning and we’ve got ourselves in a fight for a podium place. The feeling was good and I’m more comfortable but we need to wait and see what impact the weather and road conditions will have this afternoon. 📷 @atworldphotography

Moving up 2 places is always a good way to start the day... 💪 roads a little more frozen this morning #KM5

‪Here’s my day @RallySweden in 3 photos. We had stages in Norway (can you tell!), then we had the pleasure of meeting Prince Carl Philip of Sweden at lunch service, and in the afternoon we were flying (well we went a bit faster than this morning)! ‬#KM5

‪We’ve been making steady progress this afternoon and my driving style seems to suit the afternoon conditions. Bit annoyed by a stall on the last one, not what we need when fighting for road position tomorrow. But it’s tricky and we’re just trying to be clean. #KM5

I’ve been enjoying it this morning, the car feels nice and we’re driving clean which was the main plan. Maybe I’m just not being as adventurous as the other guys in exploring the grip but hey, it’s just the first morning and there’s more to come. #KM5

Not really a fun stage tonight but I’m looking forward to getting stuck in to the proper stages tomorrow. We will give it a good go! #KM5

Happy after shakedown, had a good rhythm on the first couple of passes but it was rutted on the third pass and we hit a bump which pushed us into a snow bank. It can be a complicated rally with these conditions but I’m happy with the speed and just need to focus on staying clean this weekend. Rally starts at Karlstad tonight, it’s a tricky little stage! #KM5
