    Must say, given the tragic circumstances of pretty much the first incident this season, I agree with the last two posts.

    Not to mention the talent of any of the wrc drivers outweighs the ambition of probably everyone posting on this forum.

    Does nothing of the sort at all and, as others have mentioned, is both pointless and childish. Nutty kids on the loose again?
    Never do anything you wouldn't want to explain to a paramedic.

    are you stupid people ?

    if a driver co-driver dies like Michael Park a few years ago or gets crippled for life like Kubica will you award extra points ???
    Well said N.O.T. never thought I'd say that.

    The FIA at its annual prize giving does have - personality of the year, action of the year and rookie of the year categories. Could there be WRC specific categories for the same titles? because F1 fans are likely to always out vote the wrc fans by total numbers.

    and the Autosport awards - the 'moment of the year' was only awarded twice

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to do this as offensive.

    You can close/delete this thread if you think it's inappropriate for this forum, I'm not gonna post any updates here myself.

    Well, let`s not count call them points and "winners". Statistically i can`t see anything wrong and unethical about it.

    Yeah, should be negative points. I just wanted to see who's really the cleanest driver, like Dani Sordo hasn't made a single mistake this year but he doesn't get much credit for that.

    Maybe we all should stop following and supporting a sport that is dangerous to both drivers and spectators?

    I really can't see why it would be unethical at all. It gives us a clear picture of who is better at keeping the car on the road. Of course nobody would award bonus points for a killed co-driver. Why would you even suggest that?

    An off with damage is worse than an off without and a retirement is worse than rally 2.

    I don't see any problem with a points system either.

    Keeping the car intact is a very important aspect of rallying (which is why Meeke is second to last of the manufacturer entries in the championship despite winning a round).
