    Sordo at -1:40, Mikkelsen at -0:55

    Note that on both vids from the Hyundais there is a clean line that goes into the cut. (left wheel line is clearly visible, that puts the right wheel into the concrete block).


    Sure they could have cut just a few extra cm more than others, but doesn't looke like they were much more in. Note that Lefevbre and Hanninen drove just before Sordo and Meeke and Ogier drove before Mikkelsen so they should have been in the cut too.

    Will be interesting to see the comparison when other onboards show up. But as of now my theory is that when in the cut both Hyundais turned the front wheel more out than others (probably to compensate understeer). It's still their mistake but could explain why others survived without ripping off wheels.

    I bet Ogier went nowhere near it! As predicted yesterday cutting in Catalunya is like playing Russian roulette.

    From dimviii's photo it's clearly too deep cut. No accidental hit of a stone but a concrete bridge like I think Bluuford said.

    Sordos broken suspension

    You don't see that very often, same part of the hub that broke in Neuville's small cut in Germany in the rear.

    This type i guess, pretty sure they will homologate a new part for next year. Haven't they had the hub break at the top bolt of the damper twice and Neuville in MC was maybe something with the hub?

    "White cast iron

    When the white cast iron is fractured, white coloured cracks are seen throughout because of the presence of carbide impurities. White cast iron is hard but brittle. It has lower silicon content and low melting point. The carbon present in the white cast iron precipitates and forms large particles that increase the hardness of the cast iron. It is abrasive resistant as well as cost-effective making them useful in various applications like lifter bars and shell liners in grinding mills, wear surfaces of pumps, balls and rings of coal pulverisers, etc."
