    That's a good point actually... Maybe torque split issue still or just diff controller?
    Something mechanical?

    I think Ott probably was referring to the fact that the gravel crew have a very stressful and pressurized job on the Monte.

    For the championship yes, but for me this wasn’t an epic Monte. Early problems of the Hyundai’s meant there wasn’t a battle at the front and WRC2 turned to shit after one day too.

    What a start to this season! Great rally, enjoying the whole event.
    About Mr.Perfect-Ogier: I've imagined that he will be so superior. After last year's Neuville's "gift" I was convinced that the place on a podium will be a success for Ogier. Indeed he is on podium, but on on the 1st place. And so convincingly, he just won few stages, but those, where the conditions were really bad...and he made a big lap compare to others. The drive of a multiple champion. Nothing more to say.
    Toyota boys: a real contenders for the championship. Tanak impressed.
    Latvala less, but still he will show his "muscles" already in Sweden. Lappi-also remarkable. Mistake on the PS will be forgotten soon.
    Meeke-big dissapointmet, except points at the end.
    Hyundai-rally to forget.....but there is always a team, who can not be happy with the result. Still nothing lost. Future looks bright for them.

    epic montes usually mean that everyone is out apart from a clear winner that makes the championship boring... i prefer boring montes and an exciting season ahead.

    That's the mercurial speed Meeke has. Pulled a fastest time from nowhere, Neuville and Mikkelsen not sure what hit them in that power stage! I'm sure Meeke can barely believe he's ended up with 17pts from this weekend despite the performance. Still, a worry for the c3 on very bumpy and slippery tar. Same problems as last year here....

    Lappi unlucky to lose 3 places but small mistakes have cost him. On the whole though Toyota will be delighted, he has again shown massive potential and it was a superb performance from the whole team. Jari and Tanak will be championship contenders and my money is on one of the two winning in Sweden, considering all the testing they've already done and knowing the car suits those roads. Tanak just keeps getting better and better!

    As for Seb, once again he shows he's the master. Maybe not the fastest driver anymore if you put all the drivers head to head over a single stage shootout, but over the course of a whole rally he's by far the cleverest and that's why he's still favourite for the title. Absolutely brilliant when the conditions were at their most difficult this weekend, and he managed the rally brilliantly from Thursday night onwards.

    Can't wait for Sweden!
