    The truth from Meeke ... they were nowhere on pace:

    This is why I said stage-winners Evans or Neuville deserved to finish above him.

    Meeke also had a stage win and the finish time matters, not the stage wins.

    Meeke took an ill-performing car to a very strong points finish. Last year he was ripping wheels off or rolling cars into balls, and justifying it due to the fact the car was bad. So I'd say this is some nice progress. Regarding people deserving anything in rallying... let's just say we agree to disagree.

    Meeke lost a bunch of time on the first day in a similar off as Ogier, who lost only a little time. It's also a bit of luck in the game as well.

    This variant of going over Col de Turini (or this one reversed) is the most spectacular one. Pity there is less and less alowed space for spectators every year.

    So driver's lose time with a puncture, or go off where there is no spectators to help, and lose big time.

    But a guy and a car that they beat hands-down for speed, just gets round and finishes ahead ... and that's just fine.

    I get it. There is no justice in rallying and you are all happy about that.

    Even Meeke is as good as saying he was lucky to get the place and points.

    Yes, that's absolutely fine. Nobody forced the first guy to go off where there were no spectators to help.

    The thing about punctures is valid, because that is mostly pure luck. Now, if a driver finishes ahead of another solely because he went off once and the other went off twice, he deserves to finish ahead regardless of speed.
