    they need that, after all these happened with diesel gate.

    we have to mention that electric cars have no power loss at all,even at the finish of pikes peak.
    Petrol cars have lost almost the half power.

    There's little more than that.

    and 150-250+ bhp more from midway to top of mountain.Also flat torque from ''idle''
    electric cars are different league in terms of power.This one accelerates faster from F1 car.

    In the previous Finnish Championship event production car title contender Henrik Pietarinen were excluded, because his co-driver noticed some mistake/unidentified mess with the time card and they reversed back, but had left the TC area already.

    Yes, but there is a big difference. Pietarinen clearly broke the rules by going back to TC area, that is something Ogier didn't do. I'm quite sure they were aware of the mistake very soon and had all the time to come back and pick the card, but they didn't do another rookie mistake. So all in all, Seb stayed deep on the grey area doing nothing that's clearly stated in the rules to be a reason for disqualification.

    From my point of view the penalty was absolutely correct, let's move on.
