    Could it be then that Lappi and Latvala pushed harder (as in, were stressing the engine more) than Tanak, meaning that their engines overheated first?

    All 3 Yaris had much better stage times in SS4 than all morning. Q.E.D.


    Off course I don't know if they had overheat problems, you don't know either. Heck often the drivers can't be sure either as the engine turns down power automatically (ref. Toyota engineer), supposedly without even telling on the dashboard (ref. Latvala SS2).

    But based on times they clearly had much less issues in SS4 and the higher speed is for sure the reason. I recommend you actually read and think about whats written first. "Highest stage" doesn't mean much if the difference is a few 100m while the avg. speed difference is 30 km/h.
    drivers quotes from stage, tells me that you dont have a clue what happened.
    you dont have to imagine theories with average speeds vs high altitude vs times from previous stages,when drivers said THEY SWITCHED OFF ANTILAG DUE TO HIGH ENGINE TEMP.

    hope its clear now.

    Yeah he was interviewed by Molly after the stage in service. Basically it's a failsafe system which he said wasn't in place last year, which kicks in to protect the engine and other components when temps get too high. Basically the system manages power output in relation to Performance vs reliability when the temps are high. Said things were under control although obviously he was putting a brave face on it, as they've still had two cars suffer a bit much.

    according to Fowler, they had different mapping to Tanaks yaris.
    Maybe they had to try some different things at one car from other 2 cars, for safety reasons.
    ie less power for Tanak from mapping,but when you dont have high engine temp like at Latvalas and Lappis car with different mapping for more power,at the end you gain,because your less power car(Tanak)car didnt get at safe mode due to mild mapping,so no high engine temp=no safe mode.

    It's like every rally is having a competion to win the biggest 'mickey mouse stage' award.

    Neuville rattled. Really unhappy
