Jari – Matti Latvala ( Toyota Yaris Wrc) with the time of 1’53’’9 is the fastest in this morning’s  shakedown in Olmedo .  “ The car is working very well and I am really satisfied with the set up. It will be a difficult race, we will see how the rain will effect, for us it is a disadvantage, while for the shakedown at the end it did not influence a lot the conditions since the grip was perfect.” To underline that on the first round on the damp ground Ogier, Suninen ( Ford Fiesta Wrc) and Mikkelsen ( Hyundai i20 Wrc) went wide and damaged their cars that were the repaired at service park.
