    EDIT// Looks that the link isnt working, but go to Enthusiasts of Rally Sweden Facebook.
    So it was actually him pushing Meeke deeper in the ditch, despite claiming the opposite! He needs a penalty of one rally ban to sort himself, if he can.

    Credits for Meeke trying to make room for him to overtake. It was actually the Yaris which moved to the right, quite possibly due to the snow bank push back, but anyway unfair to blame Meeke for anything.

    Well, just a bad situation where no one is to blame...or both equally.
    Looks like the road is getting narrower on the right side, and that it was not room to pass there. Meeke can not get further to the right. It is hard to see if Tanaks car is in a straight line, and where on his car he hits the Citroen.

    Looks like an racing incident.

    I think he slowdown cuz he don't know what will be road ahead, drive by his eyes and wait when Martin could find right page in pacenotes.

    He didn't apologize, but he pleaded guilty himself in that accident in interview at final night regroup

    Storm in a tea cup should become the slogan of this season based on the first two rounds.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    Meeke - Tanak - racing incident. One tried to leave space for overtaking(road was to narrow, so not enough room left), another took a chance - and not succeeded... so basic racing incident, but I can see that matter will be dragged for at least 10 pages with loads of insults...

    Actually both have calmed down, analysed the situation and said that it was just bad luck with both sides responsible. No need to go any further.
