    Are they talking about Mikkelsen's little overshoot at 4:45 i SS3 or did i miss something?
    If that made gravel get onto the belt it's a bit weird even if they run less protection than on gravel rallies...

    That Mikkelsen's little off made alternator belt cut? That doesnt sound seriuos. If so, then thats one more part where they need to work on. The Hyundai car is sooo fragile then... Last season there was that right hand corner in Spain rally, where both Sordo and Mikkelsen took their wheel off, but everyone else was going through fine.

    This is the "off" marked using epic paint skills with red arrows.

    The first part (straight) is gravel road, the part up the hill looked like smooth tarmac. Street view of the place is here but the picture is from 2009:

    So while "off" stage it's pretty on a road all the time.

    I get that they can get from data that it happened here, but if it did then:
    a) it was extremely unlucky
    or
    b) there is some rather bad design involved

    I'd place my bets on the deep gravel cuts cutting the belt over the off road excursion into somebody's paved yard.

    Hyundai says it was due to the "off", Hyundai has the data logs. (Doesn't mean they are telling the truth off course)

    I have a feeling that there is more and more pressure at the team. TThat will lead to even worst results I think...

    Now it is Mikkelsen time to prove things. It is now or never...
    Neuville is fragile for another event and probably for another year and Sordo/Paddon getting worse year by year.

    Someone should talk to you about respect to the different opinion.
