    But it comes at the cost of the other days, friday and saturday was just three stages ran twice. And even them were run very quickly after each other, the wrc radio couldn't even interview all drivers before the first ones were already in the finish of the next one, it made the days kinda silly with a rush of stages and then lots of waiting.

    For me this is another advantage. I can follow on PC for 2 hours then go (out) and do something else for a few hours I instead of 30 min breaks between all the time.

    yeh, there's two sides to this. But I'd just love to have a proper rally following day, I usually just put on the WRC radio and do other things meanwhile. When the stages overlap, it's hard to follow the WRC2 guys or even the rest of the WRC cars.

    No idea if someone has mentioned before: Wilson actually asked Tanak to ease up, after Sunday’s first loop.

    Q:
    How hard were you pushing on the final day?
    OT:
    For sure I was doing my best. I couldn’t make any mistakes because of the points – I was close to the limit. In the morning, we never had the gap more than one second [between Ogier and Tanak], it was close. After the break I had a phone call from Malcolm [Wilson, team principal]. He was laughing for about 10 seconds, but then he said: “That’s enough now.” Then we have really good points. I knew Seb is kind of controlling this thing and I didn’t have any tools to beat him today. This is how it had to end.

    Yes, this was written already on sunday in estonian media that Wilson used teamorders.

    Well there we go. It was going to happen sooner or later for Ott since he is now battling at the top.

    Yeah and this is how Tanak's wheel looked like from that...

    but still it was on the car.. not trailing on the side like Hyundais, sure they could have been a few cms more to the side, or (more likely in view) their wheels were turned more out.

    Anyway quite lucky he got no loss of air from that. Also remember one of his rims looked about the same after PowerStage in germany.

    Thank god that Malcom used teamorders. This may be also the reason that M-Sport had two drivers on the podium...and not in the ditch or with provoked technical troubles due to driving over the limit....

    Big storylines, action and unpredictability in every event. The WRC really is in a great place right now.

    I got my photos uploaded if anyone fancies a look
    nice pictures kid... but you are not a pro... too little photoshop/filter crap and no lakes or flowers and too much focus on the cars...

    i am dissapointed...
