    Auriol was part of teams from VAG, Ford, PSA and Toyota. He could probably get at least a R5 if he really wants.

    Toyota or Ford for Auriol, please. Although I'd most rather see him in a Sierra Cosworth.

    Auriol also says he won't do Finland, but maybe a tarmac event or a gravel rally he likes, such as Portugal or Argentina. He may resort to a 2016 car for the lower cost.

    Grönholm just turned 50 and seems like he's passing the opportunity to do a birthday rally like Alen, Kankkunen, Vatanen, Salonen and Mikkola did before. At least he says he doesn't want to do Rally Finland, and Tommi wouldn't give him a car.

    Grönholm said he would rather have done Sweden than Finland. So probably no WRC event for him

    Article headed "We will perfect WRC Live TV" in this weeks Motorsport Monday contains some insight into cause of problem in accessing Monte Carlo timing on WRC.com. Underlying cause known and changes have been made to ensure the problem is not repeated.

    Growing old is a physiological certainty. Growing up is a psychological option.

    Suomenruotsalaiset perkele?

    Not so serious as much as wondering if this is correct (or intelligible) Finnish.

    Wonder how this could suddenly happen as WRC.com has been providing live times and splits for years now...

    Very poor, especially coinciding with ALL LIVE on Monte Carlo (which wasnt) and didnt show many splits.

    I think the article explains how it happened pretty well?

    Anybody who's ever looked at the codebase for WRC+ can tell it's amateur hour over there. Heck, even the site design for wrc.com looks like something a high schooler made on Microsoft Frontpage 15 years ago. But they're getting better, slowly.

    Miss-integration between two services is well explained?
    At more than 3 million requests per hour, the public-facing API became overloaded
    This is something that a lot of services have trouble with after starting out or making major changes and I just can not understand it. How can they let this happen? The amount of requests can't be a surprise for them, they must have some previous data and be able to calculate a safe buffer.

    Still, non of the issues that revealed themselves during the launch was a surprise and I'm quite confident it will be stabilized quite quickly.

    "Unfortunately, WRC.com's systems and ours were not integrated correctly, and traffic from the spectating public was forwarded to our servers. At more than 3 million requests per hour, the public-facing API became overloaded. WRC.com was temporarily disabled in order to allow the rest of our clients - including the AC de Monaco - stable access to timing information. Since then, we've worked with WRC.com to ensure the problem isn't repeated"

    What more do you need to know? The names of the people at WRC.com who screwed it up?
