    I´m not sure the cut in Spain has been talked thru completely yet. That cut was not extraordinary. The car let him down. And maybe it has done it more times this year. I think Hyundai has a lot of details to improve stregth on.

    Well, there was quite a big rock and if you think about his broken wheels in recce...
    His car has also saved him quite a bit this year. Was it Argentina where he was going sideways in a rough ditch, almost rolling, but saved it+ won the stage?

    Yeah I do wonder why ESTR has to go deep into the cuts

    Watch a few onboards from spain, everyone took cuts, specially in the one that cost Sordo and Mikkelsen their wheels. Every single one of the top drivers was in the cut, Tanak even as much as Sordo. (and got broken - trough rim from that).

    we don't know how deep they cut the other drivers.Few centimetres can be crucial at this cut, considering the big photo from the cut I posted before some pages.If we had video from other driversfrom another angle maybewe could understand more.

    Plenty of onboards on WRC+ (promo code is in the other thread), Tanak vs Sordo comparison was even in the daily highlights.

    Even though it looks similar there can off course also be differences in the angle of the frontwheels. As I said on Saturday the Hyundais are probably likely to turn the wheels more due to the understeering issue they had.

    Anyway my point now wasn't to argue about centimeters, just to remind that all drivers were cutting.
    Btw. remember the cut that almost caused both Tanak and Østberg to crash due to bottoming-out in something like 6th corner of SS7.

    2nd stage looks like the second half of Corte-Taverna, the stage that was fatal in 1986. But the tragedy happened on the first half.

    Are you talking about superstition here, or you believe the stage is dangerous? While stages can be classified based of risk factors, tragedy can happen everywhere.

    Just an interesting detail. I mean, Corte-Taverna was driven as it was until the 1990's and we didn't get more fatal accidents there, so obviously it's not a super dangerous road

    Still, wouldn't Ogier have had around the same, if not more time in the car before Monte, than Mikkelsen had when he started Germany?
