    Seems much easier for drivers from Europe than for drivers from anywhere else in the world to get the opportunities, so it wouldn't hurt to try and improve that if possible.

    There was very little damage to the car, they said if it wasn't for the spectator death they would have tipped the car back on its wheels and carried on.

    I always remember the old saying... to finish first, first you have to finish.

    Being Finnish often seems to help too.

    Live text on WRC+ quotes him saying "in many places I was lucky to get back in the lines just in time", which sounds like he was taking some risks.

    Well Paddon said he was taking it really easy, "almost like a recce". Ogier said he was pushing though.

    I only have experience of such systems in road cars rather than competition, but that sounds quite similar to the Subaru DCCD system first used in the Type-RA homologation Imprezas in the 90s.

    Most of Paddon's disappointing results this season have been from mechanical problems not driver problems, pretty sure the team won't be blaming him for those.

    Does he need 'don't cut' a bit more often in the notes? Bit of a odd place to clip the inside, almost like he was anticipating a touch of understeer and got a sharper turn-in than expected.

    Good find, hadn't realised they showed top speeds there. Interesting to compare the modern cars top speeds with the classics in the Otago results too.

    Because he ran wide, missed the apex by a mile and brushed a tree on the next corner without hitting it hard enough to damage anything?

    Did his stage wins in Argentina not count as good pace? Or sitting 3rd in Mexico before engine problems? People have such short memories. ;)

    Paddon was delayed trying to fix a broken ARB, stefanvv is delusional and thinks it was a conspiracy to change his road position by one place.
