Thu 21:07 - Driver Q&A
We'll show the end-of-day news conference on our Live Stream from 2115hrs. Find it in the 'Live' section on the home page.

Thu 20:57 - WRC top 5 after SS1
[+ times to leader]: 1. Ogier (VW): 1m48.6s, 2. Meeke (DS 3): +0.6s, 3. Mikkelsen (VW): +0.8s, 4. Kubica (Ford): +1.1s, 5. Latvala (VW): +1.6s

Thu 20:54 - SS1: Ogier
And he's fastest. Six-tenths up on Meeke. "Happy to finish like this, it's easy to make a mistake here. Okay, a small advantage with the drying road. Tomorrow we have a really long day ahead. A tough challenge."

Thu 20:51 - SS1: Ogier on stage
But he's not the first world champion though tonight's test. That honour went to four time champ Tommi Makinen who drove an enormous green Valtra tractor through before the first rally car. It was the same tractor another former champ, Juha Kankkunen, broke the tractor world speed record with earlier this year. 80.88 miles per hour. On snow. We kid you not.

Thu 20:51 - SS1: Tanak
A hairy moment for The Estonian when his Fiesta collects a massive sandbag on an apex. I have no handbrake, I was locking all four wheels. I'm not happy at the moment." He is ninth fastest, 3.3sec off the pace.

Thu 20:48 - SS1: Mikkelsen
Pushing hard, and he's lucky to escape a very wide moment though the forest section when he gets both right-hand wheels off the tarmac. Second fastest so far. "Very slippery but it was a clean run, no worries. The fun starts tomorrow."

Thu 20:44 - SS1: Ostberg
Fourth fastest so far. "It was okay, nothing really special."

Thu 20:42 - SS1: Latvala
Third fastest so far, 1sec off Meeke's pace. "It was slippery, not an easy start. A little mistake, a little touch of the sandbags, but all okay."

Thu 20:39 - SS1: Neuville
His Hyundai looks brand new after his shunt earlier today on Shakedown. It seems to go well too - he's fourth quickest so far. "I'm happy to be here. Our team has done an incredible job to fix the car. Huge, huge thanks to them. I hope we can bring back a good result for them."

Thu 20:36 - SS1: Meeke
He sets a new fastest time, 0.5sec up on Kubica. "It's drying out all the time. A tricky stage, a bit of dirt pulled onto the road. Really looking forward to the stages this weekend. I hope I find a good feeling tomorrow."

Thu 20:33 - SS1: Paddon
Hayden's co-driver John Kennard is marking his 50th WRC rally and his 30th anniversary in the sport this week. Paddon says: "Super Specials aren't really my thing. It was really slippery there so we took no risks. It's important to have a clean start."

Thu 20:30 - SS1: Evans
Fourth quickest, 3.8sec off Kubica's benchmark. "It was a lot more slippery than expected and I missed a lot of apexes. Still, we're here in one piece and looking forward to getting out on the proper stages tomorrow."

Thu 20:27 - SS1: Sordo
The Spaniard snakes his Hyundai off the line to try and put some heat into the tyres. Third fastest so far. "Very, very slippery on the tarmac. Okay, we don't take too many risks today because there is a lot of this rally ahead."

Thu 20:25 - SS1: Prokop
A good start for Martin who completes 0.8sec slower than Kubica. But it wasn't a smooth ride. "It was slippery like hell and our handbrake isn't working properly. It was difficult to manage the tight corners. We have to work on it before tomorrow."

Thu 20:20 - SS1: Al Qassimi
The DS 3 driver fourth quickest so far in 2m0.5s. "Surprisingly slippery and a lot of wheel spin on the uphill gravel section too."

Thu 20:18 - SS1: Kubica
A great start for the Pole who completes in a new fastest time 3.9sec quicker than Hanninen. The new time to beat: 1m49.7s. "It was okay. Very slippery though, and for sure the track - sorry, the road - will get drier and faster for the cars behind."

Thu 20:14 - SS1: Bertelli
The Italian completes 0.3sec slower than Hanninen. "Very slippery and we made a small mistake in the last corner. We lost maybe a second."

Thu 20:11 - SS1: Hanninen
Former Hyundai team member Juho is the first World Rally Car driver on stage. He's in a Ford Fiesta RS this week. His time is quickest so far: 1m53.6s. Not bad considering he didn't have the benefit of a pre-event test. "Not the easiest start, but okay, no hits. We took it quite steadily."

Thu 20:01 - WRC+
SS1 is now streaming live on WRC+

Thu 19:59 - SS1: Quentin Gilbert
The Junior Championship leader bags fastest time in JWRC - 2m03.3s. Up next, the WRC runners...

Thu 19:54 - SS1: Junior WRC drivers
On stage now. Terry Folb the early class pace-setter in 2m03.9s

Thu 19:44 - SS1: Stage update
Changeable. A dry line is appearing in some of the asphalt sections but there are some ominous-looking clouds building overhead.

Thu 19:37 - SS1: Van Den Brand update
Hit a wall, broken steering. He's out of tonight's competition. All being well he will restart tomorrow.

Thu 19:33 - SS1: Huttunen spins
It's a rough start for the man recently crowned 'Future Rally Star of Finland" who spins his Citroen into a barrier. He's underway again. 'A little bit too fast and hit a wall. I think it's okay," he says at the finish.

Thu 19:27 - SS1: Drive DMACK Trophy
Drivers are now filtering through. Early problems though for Mats Van Den Brand, who is reported to have gone off in the forest section.

Thu 19:15 - WRC Live
As well as our text service, don't forget our WRC Live radio commentary and Service Park live stream cameras. You'll find links to both in the LIVE section

Thu 19:14 - SS1: Stage underway
And the wet asphalt is already proving tricky. Daniele Pellegrineschi's Citroen DS3 R3T has just done a neat pirouette backwards into a barrier. Daniele is back underway having escaped with just a broken rear light.

Thu 19:07 - SS1: Stage Notes
Harju 1, 2.27km. Neste Oil Rally Finland kicks off with the short Harju test near the centre of the host town of Jyväskylä. After returning to the itinerary in 2014 following a 16-year lay-off, it is used in virtually the same format. It’s a mix of asphalt roads and gravel tracks, and drivers must take care at a fast and tricky downhill descent into tight turns between trees.

Thu 19:06 - Start intervals
All WRC crews will start tonight's stage at 3min intervals

Thu 19:06 - Start order
Crews will tackle Friday and Saturday's stages in championship order. Tonight, however, the order is a bit special to suit the live TV (and WRC+) schedule. Mitsubishi Lancer driver Fabrizio De Sanctis was first to start at 1900hrs. The first of the World Rally Car drivers, Juho Hanninen, will be on stage at 1950hrs. The last, Sébastien Ogier, will start at 2032hrs, followed by the WRC 2 runners

Thu 19:03 - Set your watches
Here are tonight's crucial times (all GMT 3): 1842hrs (first car leaves service), 1900hrs (first car on stage SS1), 1930hrs (first car returns to Service Park)

Thu 18:53 - Weather
Summer in Jyväskylä has been a bit of a washout so far and there's no sign of a change on the horizon. Today we've seen bright spells but also some sharp bursts of torrential rain. More showers are likely. Right now the roads are wet but there's bright sunshine overhead (we're in Finland remember, so sunset is not until 2210hrs). The temperature is 14ºC.

Thu 18:52 - Coming up today
A short curtain raiser. Just one stage, Harjiu (2.27km) will run this evening before a packed schedule of competition on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Thu 18:52 - We're set
At the WRC text desk, assembled this time in a cavernous hall in the Paviljonki exhibition complex - home to the rally Service Park

Thu 18:51 - Hyvää iltaa!
That's good evening from Jyväskylä, and welcome to our live text coverage of Neste Oil Rally Finland

Mon 16:27 - Neste Oil Rally Finland
