Fri 08:52 - Weather: part 2
On the start line of SS2 there is good visibility, blue skies and some fine snow falling. The stage surface is frozen hard. The start line itself is completely ice-covered. The temperature is -2.6˚C.

Fri 08:52 - Weather: part 1
Here in Karlstad it's -2.6˚C with light cloud cover. We had to chip some ice off our windscreen and we passed some frozen lakes on the drive in, but there's no snow about.

Fri 08:51 - Tyre choices
Not much in the way of choice here, it's spikes all the way! The unique Rally Sweden tyres are 195mm wide, much narrower than their gravel and asphalt counterparts, 125mm deep and sit on a 15 inch diameter rim. Each tyre contains 384 metal studs set into the tread blocks, so that the tips protrude by 6.5 millimetres. A maximum 24 of these tyres may be used per World Rally Car.

Fri 08:51 - Start intervals
World Rally Car crews will tackle the stages at two-minute intervals
