    True... That is surprising for a world level event.

Olivier Gaspard, the RTBF's special correspondent in the south of France, we were also able to show our speed and consistency afterwards, which bodes well for the rest of the championship. Sebastien Ogier rally? No, it's NOT his rally, he made more dumplings than us, with all the respect I have for Julien (Ingrassia, his co-driver, Ed) and Sébastien. There are two peeled and three sheared, one of which holds his GoPro instead of pushing the car, and when it happens to him, there are fifty spectators and they come right away. good time !"

    WHAT?

    You been watching some different rally?
    Retired from 3rd place due to alternator. Fastest on Saturday leg. Cruising for PS on Sunday and took 3 points.

    Number of mistakes: 2 (overshoot on SS3, and spin SS9 which he still won by 22s).

    ----

    Btw this last statistic would certainly be interesting. I don't think anyone is below 2 (Ogier had the spin on SS1 and then the ditch on Friday), Neuville is on 8+

    For sure you are correct, if they had a problem in the bumpy sections last year, that seems to have been improved. I said last year, the rear end of the C3 is loose, and when the tyres cant hold on the driver is always on a knife edge to keep it all pointing the right way.
    Its not a coincidence that on the 1 proper dry stage Meeke was the fastest.

    I remember I saw in a french website on Thursday they just agreed to have the rally again in Gap in 2019. There were some talks about going to Valance a couple of years back but at then end as you can see we are staying in the champions land.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    You didn't even bother watching RedBull's review to see him smashing through some peasants' front yard. Let alone multiple times going wide at exit of corners, at places where nobody else (first 20 or so cars) did it.
    Watch more clips, kiddo, and go to bed early today.

    Third when he retired, fastest on leg 2 by 12 sec and one small spin makes you not have a clue what you are doing...?

    Edit: mknight wrote it already but doesn't hurt to repeat it.
