    You can see someone standing on the corner there, waving.
    Anyway Tanak's rim was bent in, so quite heavy impact... but no broken steering like the two others.

    Sad for the Hyundai drivers; the rally is still exciting but the titles are now almost decided. Besides Meeke/Citroen big opportunity for another win (fingers crossed!) it’ll also be interesting to see MSport possible team orders: if Tanak is asked to ease up, we get to know there’s still a chance to keep Ogier in the team; if not, that could mean Wilson is doing everything to avoid Tanak going to Toyota, as Ogier is already lost to Citroen, or that both drivers will leave the team and there’s no use to ask them anything at all…

    Btw, Solans is the new JWRC champ since SS7, as he only needed 3 stage wins. Congrats to him and to Ciamin, his strongest competitor during the season.

    Sordo warning Meeke but not his team mate coming only minutes after? What on earth is he thinking???? Cannot see Hyundai let him get away with this. His interviews this weekend has been quite critical against Hyundai. This is not looking good

    it's definitely just a deeper cut for Hyundais as they should do. It looks like all cars just dig those corner to a deeper cut and Dani try cut more then he does at 1st pass.

    Nandon saying there that it was the concrete block they hit. Clearly just slightly too deep a cut. A few centimetres to the left and maybe they'd have got away with it and missed the edge of the concrete storm drain

    This is perfect, thanks! Really big difference between first and second pass and clearly wrong line in the second one.

    Surely if he had the heart to warn the next driver he would have stayed to warn the others too, unless he was told it was too dangerous by the marshals. Not sure how far into the stage the culvert was but he would have known there were more cars en-route, including his team mates.
