    I was talking more about the 'rallying is just for fun now' comment.

    Clearly the power steering problems were real having seen the onboard from leg one.

    In the section below it says, Turkey is a near certainty coming back to the calendar (assuming the political situation stable) Croatia might be added while NZ has only an outside chance of returning. That FIA must be quite corrupt if they let Turkey in & NZ out?! Totally lost their minds imho.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    An earlier news article stated that Turkey would return but not yet in 2018, whereas NZ and Croatia were the contenders to replace China in 2018.

    Turkey. Honestly? Well, as we all know FIA doesn´t care about politics. If there are F1 races in Russia, the UAE or Azerbaijan why not choosing Turkey as a venue for a WRC round? Very good idea! I´m sure there will be many fans from other countries who want to come to a country where human rights are so important like they are in Turkey!

    $$$. That's all FIA sees. You pay, you can have a race/rally. You don't, well tough luck...

    Yes, but in 2010 when the rally was hosted for the last time the situation has not been as critical as today.

    You are right, it´s a long list of countries who impinge on human rights. And as much as I criticize a round in Turkey, I would criticize a round in China if this would take place.
