Next two days the crew continued to adapt to new conditions and gradually speeding up, studying Scandinavian drivers, who weren't competing in Rally Sweden for the 1st time. Nikolay showed time comparable to rivals having the 5th and the 4th results on the first and the second passing, respectively, on a completely new special stage Rammen, which was launched in the opposite direction this year.
Gryazin finished 5th on Saturday and made a great push during the last two special stages on the final day. He did it well on the SS18 but the final one almost ended in a car accident: in one of the first turns the car hit the rock which damaged the front suspension and the wheel. However, the crew safely reached the finish line and didn't lose the 5th position in the WRC 2 standings. They also became the highest ranked Škoda crew in the WRC Rally Sweden.
