    Guys look on the bright side. Well it would depends only by seconds every stage and that would be even more awesome than it is. Drivers would be pushing even more and maybe just maybe a few more in the game for drivers title... just my opinion.

    Almost perfect, but you forgot 1 small thing: Power Stage must be stage which have been used in rally before, so not new road but second pass of some used special stage.
    edit. maybe part of some other stage is also acceptable, so this could be perfect as it is now.

    Except in Tour de Corse they don't have to do it

    What a farse

    Youngs only have interest on what? And football game with 90m?
    I agree with Nandan, we can't lost rally DNA.
    Tommi said what about actual cars not made to endurance? Talk by your car and the problems that existed in 2017.
    Media difficult to follow rally? Really? With all the technologies of current society you can do worst than 80s!
    Promoter should be concern to have more coverage and more quality coverage. Rally is not a live tv sport (only PS), catch the images, select the best and show them!

    What did that total? About 15 seconds?

    Come on, media coverage is not a factor in WRC2s favour. Once they talked about a half hour WRC2 highlights show from each rally. Did it happen? No.

    The only time they get decent coverage is when so many WRC crews have retired that they have to show them on live stages.

    Makinen probably wants shorter stages and more trips to service in between them, seeing as he's failed to produce a reliable car that can last big mileage loops of stages

    Toyota had problems mostly on one, sometimes two cars. Other cars in the hand of those drivers also tended to have reliability issues that their teammates didn`t. Call it bad luck, car errors or driving...

    Where does this (il)logic come from?
    Nobody tweets about split times, but all the driver accounts post the stage times and post-stage comments. It's almost horrible to read a twitter feed during a rally when every driver has to tweet the stage results and overall result after the stage, even though I'm following it on the wrc results page anyway. And of course the stage comments are posted in english and the native language. So if we would split a 40 km stage into four stages, we would get four times as much social media posts.

    Also, since split times are not really "official", no media will write a news story about "Tšnak flying in the splits". No, they will write about how it was at the end of the stage.

    I'm not saying this is what the sport needs, but this is the logic they're thinking through.
