    Good morning one and all - so looking forward to a REAL day of rallying.
    Steve - Loeb won RMC in 2013 as Ogier was cautious and came second. Loeb crashed in 2014 in his 'favorite events only' year, probably because he finally found himself under pressure from a driver who is his equal and a better car!
    If we had seen 2 circuits yesterday my money would have been on Ogier to have pulled time back when there was no sweeping effect. Amazing to me that Latvala still can never capitalise on his position after 2 good rallies. I hope Kris can turn this advantage to a win AND then follow up in the next few events. Very interesting season but I stand by my crystal ball that says Ogier won't need to go to Australia.

    It was 2015, when Loeb lost the battle to Ogier in MC.

    2013 was Loeb's year with favourite rallies, he has won 2- Monte and Argentina, came 2-nd in Sweden and crashed on the last one in France.
    Loeb crashed in 2015 when doing Monte as one off.

    Bartek I would expect, that their software, will shut off als automatically, as their temp raised at 120 degrees,and not be drivers choice if they will close als, or continue to drive with raised water temp and als on.

    Good morning to you yourself. Exciting day to come.
    So what should he capitalise on starting first on the road? Let´s wait and see next two days. After that we talk.

    In general software turns off ALS automatically when EGT temperature is too high and it's not considering water or oil temp for that.
