    So we didn't get to see the stage winner sadly

    Still quite an achievement by Kopecky even if not a proper stage.

    Multiple reasons likely appart from him being very good tarmac driver:

    - smaller/narrower car with very good handling
    - more rubber on the stage (just check the vid)
    - getting colder fast once the sun sets so a few more hp
    No, he is the fastest guy. For sure.

    However I think pressure decreased now.

    More rubber on the roads surely helped a little, but he would have been up there even if he went first. He was 3 tenths faster.

    You know Kopecky won 2 stages here in 2006 driving Fabia WRC against Loeb and Sordo with Xsara, Gronholm with Focus etc...

    So no need to mock him.

    Maybe they can change this year: Meeke to WRX, Loeb to WRC

    Stage time says yes.

    There is most likely a limit for everything. Sure he won't loose it because of this, but 1 more max 2 bad outings and it might run over.

    Lefevbre also had a spot this year... and then he didn't.
