    He didn't need medical clearance. He couldn't compete for 2 weeks but was than allowed to compete again without any test.

Both replaced the old Piech's people in their role. As a result VAG is no longer driven by VW.
    You’re making some confusion. Dieselgate was a new chapter in the private war between Porsche and Piech families to control VW Group (that exists since the 60’s, with VW privatization), but it didn’t change the overall VW centered business. No matter who is chosen to lead, the group flag is always VW.

    Btw, Muller was a VW group guy all his life; previous to the Porsche job, he had been Audi and VW top exec; Potsch is a former VW CEO.

    Seems like Poland is out & Turkey is in...however it looks like the calendar might just stay 13 events, which IMHO is better if you want to keep all the manufacturers involved, besides the fact Croatia would have been another european event...
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Indeed, I'd rather have fewer rallies with more top seats than more rallies with 4-5 top cars. Also, leaving politics aside, Turkey when it was in the WRC previously was different from the other rallies so hopefully it has its own style this time as well.

    We just got back from a great rally Deutchland, was really fun to follow. Since i have the most rally "expierence" the guys hit me asked a lot of questions. Most of them i could answer, but some i didn't exactly know, can one of you help?

    What would a WRC17 car cost?
    How many tires are allowed on one rally weekend
    Is it allowed for teams to make extra cuts in there tyres (for damp conditions slicks whit extra cuts)?
    How much does one litre of WRC fuel cost?
    Why were there 3 minute intervals on romerstrasse (stage 12)?

    Thanks!

    SS12 was TV stage, 3 minute gaps are for showing longer streaks of live footage of each car. On power stage the intervals may be even longer, at least for top 3 cars.

    I think the tyre amount is 28-32 depending on the rally.
