    Would it maybe be called tactics? Safety first, or something?

    It makes me wonder if works Fabia has some special engine mode just for super specials?

    'Nearly' two stage wins this year, superspecials or not is quite something with an R5 car.

    Edit: Actually lots of Fabias quick on this stage.

    As someone already said, the one rock killed the rally.

    Apart from ruining Hyundai manu chances it also removed just about all other close fights.

    Without Sordo nobody immediately threatens Meeke in front, so he should be able to bring it in. Tanak probably isn't able to with gravel gearbox. Ogier will not go 100% as the situation is now, and again due to Tanak's gearbox should be able to stay ahead of him. Hanninen wasn't as impressive in the afternoon so shouldn't be able to close up.

    Impossible to tell without vids/pictures but it's clearly interesting that 5? cars hit the rock and it's 2 Hyundais that retire. Sure could be that they both cut more than others.

    Mikkelsen didn't have much to loose so even if it's a stupid mistake it doesn't change much, Neuville would get ahead anyway (either on pace or on TO), others were too far behind and he clearly couldn't catch those in front. He also already impressed by leading after day 1. For Sordo it's much harder hit, probably the best chance for him so far this year and with 4 drivers next year it doesn't look good. Also getting unlikely Hyundai will send 4 cars to Australia.
