    Was Fabia WRC a competitive car for You? there were moments when it was able to be on podiums at least on provisional one just like Colin McRae before the unfamous service fiasco in Australia or Bengue before he crashed in Monte Carlo. One event is not enough to judge. We have to wait and see.

Maybe TN will challenge for the Championship one day but he needs to improve his concentration and consistency first
    On paper he lost 2 events, but with little of luck, he could have been leading now. It's strange how he demonstrated superiority in Monte and Sweden, and now all that is gone.

    No, with special glue/rubber seal with wires inside, so you warm it up, put the windscreen on and then disconnect the power so it cools down and keeps the windscreen. Opposite way - to remove the windscreen - you heat up the seal, it melts so it's easy then to remove the windscreen... Mercedes road car product. Some teams use same seals for rear side windows, etc. You can see black battery booster next to right front wheel of Bertelli car on that picture, they used it to remove the window.
    If you have broken windscreen you can have 3 mechanics who can remove and clean and put new one during regrouping/parc ferme before the service. Usually (if it's regrouping before the service) you just remove the broken windscreen, clean everything and then put new one in service place.

    The Fabia wasn't the strongest, I'll give you that, but if it was able to reach podiums at the hands of a skilled driver it mustn't have been that bad. I also doubt a McRae would have taken a drive with a crap car.

    Not strange at all if you look at his career - lack of consistency dogs his performances. Neuville has poor events for no apparent reason other than his head is not right. Clearly losing 2 events that you are arguing he should have won has got to him!

    The car had roughly 100+ Nm less than the top contenders. In the first events (summer 2004) the engine was even worse than that. And the engine was not the only area where it was lacking.
