    He's making legitimate arguments regarding Meeke's performances, is that really trolling?

    Torque speed was sett to more percent at the front than rear on Mikkelsen's car they said on the Citroën live now, not 50/50 like someone stated

    I seriously can't make sense of the Citroen. Sometimes it seems quick enough, other stages it is too slow and it seems to be consistent on re-runs of stages. It is like it has one fundamental flaw which is only showing up on certain stages or something.

    If citroen was smart, they'd stay behind and check where they had pace and where they didn't compared to the others and then go and very seriously check the roads on those stages. That would give them valuable data on what to improve.

    Very, very legitimate comments. Both Meeke and Ogier has slower cars than the Hyundai, this we all agree on. Meanwhile Ogier has not won a single rally from the front this season. He has inherited wins from other's mistakes. Ogier is a smart guy who knows to bring maximum points everywhere he can, and to do that he needs to finish. Very simple!

    Meeke is the exact opposite. He is a complete idiot who tries to win every stage of every rally always. He doesn't play the long game at all, ever. As a result, he is overdriving a car that can't handle the pace and things happen, just like it did for Tänak today. The difference is that Tänak can afford the risk, while Meeke is second to last in the championship of the regular manufacturer entries despite winning one event.

    That says a few things about his performance this year.

    I've seen news of that throughout the day but not a source.

    It obvious that they have a traction problem when reduced grip (loose surface or wet and slippery). When there is grip, the car is quick enough, if then its not compromised by high speed compression of the dampers.

    I very much doubt the torque split would have been changed to more than 50 percent front and suspect they must have meant more front than it used to be.
    On the other hand if the statement above is correct, it would represent swinging from one extreme to another.

    Exactly. It makes no sense at all. At least for me.
