    Yep, congrats to Kajto/Baran and MSport Poland for their 3rd title. Anyway, Bruno, Hugo and ARC Sport also deserves a big applause: the lack of budget and experience was always surpassed by their huge talent and commitment. It was quite an adventure and it’d be a shame if they’re not allowed to repeat it next year. Força Bruno, força Hugo, força ARC!

    We can see both crashes in onboard videos now.
    Here's Lukyanuk:

    And here's Magalhaes:

    In Lukyanuk's video we can hear his co-driver saying "Pravyj 2 minus dlinnyj riezat" which means "2 minus long right, cut". I can't say anything about Magalhaes' video, because I don't speak Portuguese.

    Similar: Right 5 full throttle, long, cut everything…
    It was quite an impact for Bruno and Hugo; they were lucky to escape without injures. Organizers were reckless to let drivers run that part of the stage.

    Bruno was transported to hospital. It shouldnt be really serious, but to say "without injuries" is not so much correct.

    Of course it was risky to send the crews there in this conditions. On the other hand, this water was there for whole week, crews has seen it during recce and they knew there will be. On the other hand, most of the drivers I was talking (to say the truth, 100% of people which I was talking, but it was only 50% of the field), they were planning to cut on that place. The biggest problem is that it was not sure after recce, where exactly (and if) there will be any anticuts...

    I have a theory (I dont know if it is truth) - the biggest problem should be the third anticut from tyres. Because when you are arriving to the corner, you can see first pack of tyres and metal fence with Neste brand. But the last part made of tyres is hidden behind this metal fence and can be seen on very last moment.

    I always thought he came across very well on the British Rally Championship TV coverage this year, probably better than any of the other drivers. He seems like a good character.

    Late EDIT: Yeah, wrong Solberg! But if they're anything alike, I can believe Oliver comes across well too!

    Are you sure that you have seen Oliver and not Oscar?
