    What would the series have gained by penalizing Toyota on MC for some minor issues? All other manus agree to let them go with just a warning and corrective measures for the next event. Probably they also know it can happen to them. To be tolerant in these cases is not nonsense, it’s a wise move.

    You are right, but maybe this is allowed. What are the homologation rules stating, can the weight go up from what's homologated?

    Anyone who doesnt believe or accept this ruling may as well stop following of the WRC. If you dont accept then the whole series is corrupt so why keep an interest in it ?

    If you have no proof for your cynical view, and continue to enjoy WRC, keep quiet.

    Come on, most of what the FIA does is corrupt on some level. I mean look at F1 throughout the 80s and 90s. Doesn't mean it's not entertaining.

    As for proof, it's just a matter of asking the question, "Why would something weigh less (or is it more now?) than it was supposed to in Mexico, but not in Paris?" There are some plausible explanations for such a finding, but none has been given, and that is a big red flag.

    I have no views on the MC incident. However, speaking generally as in my earlier post, as somebody wrote last week "you cannot be a little bit pregnant". Neither can you be a little bit non-compliant. You are either compliant or you are not.
    You cannot make a judgement this week allowing "tolerance" and then disallowing it the following.
    The rules are there to ensure the integrity of the competition.
    Never do anything you wouldn't want to explain to a paramedic.

    Wah! I haven't been on here since before Mexico. I have to post my captures and Mexican experience once again. Fantastic rally that was and can't wait for it to be back in 2018!
