    1) Is there a rule saying that the crew is obliged to stop and check if someone was injured (unless they are not aware they hit someone) in the French championship? If the answer is yes than it's irrelevant if the spectators were bad placed. The essence is whether the rule was breached or not.
    2) If You claim that the place was marked as forbidden area it's the spectators who are to blame rather than the organizer. It's virtually impossible to 100% guard rally stages and even a simple no go sign shall be enough to inform the spectator that when he goes there he is the one who brakes the rules and shall take the responsibility if something bad happens.
    I’m not terribly simplifying mate, just firmly stating that Michel, or any other rally driver, shouldn’t be penalized for this kind of incidents, whatever the regs say.

    Btw, when marshals can’t move bad placed spectators from a notorious dangerous spot (like this one, once the tapes), the normal procedure is to inform rally officials and those will decide if the stage must be delayed, stopped or continue as programmed; they are responsible for the chosen option.

    It's not about who we should blame, it's about rules - if it said stop - you should stop, and if you don't follow rules you get penalty - simple as that.

    If anyone is still interested, Michel won SS7 and Salanon SS8. Loeb now leading by just 1.4s!

    "Well overall. In the previous one, it was very bumpy and we do not have the dampers of a WRC. Here, it went well. "

    about ss 9 seems that doesn't suit 2wd cars,Dumas with Porsche +50 sec
    at 14km stages was about 20 sec slower from leader,so 50 sec from leader at ss 9 are a lot.
