    Things will get very interesting now in championship. Ogier must now really up his game pace wise...Even Lappi has more stage wins now than him...no doubt that Ogier has been the smarter one but no doubt that Neuville has been the faster one...If Neuville doesnt bin it in next few rallies then this smart driving to third or fourth place from Ogier isnt enough anymore if Neuville finishes higher. Both had amazing season end last year.

    Tänak and Latvala are in the best seats now IMO...they will just mind their own business and watch as these two leaders fight and if they both bin it then these two are right back in the hunt again.

    Jumping ahead bit, but how do you think the drivers will approach Rally GB and especially Rally Australia if they're very close in the championship.

    Running first on the road last year seemed quite difficult in Australia. If you can manage the points to be just one or two behind after Rally GB would that be better than leading going into the final round?

    Another consideration is the dust too.

    Been a long time since we've seriously had to consider trying to manipulate the running order for an advantage.

    It's a bit of a sign as to how exciting the combination of getting rid of VW and changing the cars has made the WRC!

    Sorry to disappoint the drinkers of the annual special edition Rally Deutschland wine but due to an extremely small harvest this year there will be no 2017 WRC vintage.

    Hmm I did a highly scientific google search.

    About 6 wine clusters per bottle and about 24 clusters per plant gives you 4 bottles per wine

    So the WRC-only harvest:

    - Hanninen at same place as Neuville and Lappi but the only one to got as far up. I estimate 5 plants.
    - Mikkelsen at Mittlemosell II, 2 plants
    - Sordo didn't seem to hit any wine (some fail)

    7 plants * 4 = 28 bottles.

    Not that bad is it.

    The grape at this stage is too sour, they must add sugar to it to reach the desired grade, from the sugar you might have bad handover. The team doctor says don't drink too much of this wine, the team boss says it might also affect your stage times.

    Only if you want cheap nasty wine. Norm for a quality vino is one bottle per vine.
