    Not any more. He quit the rally because he was too scared.

    I would take Lukyanuk over Kubica as a rally driver personally.

    A pacenote error led to the off for Lukyanuk.

    He deserves massive respect just for driving again, not ridicule.

    Østberg was also outside top 10 because of brake and power steering problems and a puncture

    Lukyanuk was only one of many big crashes in Poland.

    Well, it's the same sport as everywhere else, just more unforgiving stages. It's up to the drivers to find out how far they can go, many found out how far they cannot go...

    He is nearly 37 years old. Is it that hard to understand that he has nothing to loose? Driving save for 5th place won't bring him anything so why not to try?
    His only chance to achieve something is now, not in five years.

    Anyway he has been one of the most impressive drivers in our ERC round where many much more famous names failed to achieve anything (Mikkelsen, Lappi, Neuville, Tänak, Novikov or Breen).

    Exactly. For most of the drivers it was a new rally and the result was not that different from this year's Ypres where the Brits came for the first time - and often ended with a bad crash.

    So they go on two lower gears just to find out where the bumps are on a straight? No man, that´ll never happen. What you saw on those vids are just what happens and just luck no spectator was hit. Too far expensive way of running a rally car driving those crazy tarmac stages. Sorry, crazy is what it is.
