    It doesn't matter. If a driver is penalised for a reason, and everyone else who did the same, must be equal for all, regardless of whether it makes a difference or not.

    You would be happier if Neuville was 9:13.0 from the lead instead of 9:03.0 and 1:31.7 ahead of Tidemand instead of 1:21.7?

    Like I said, this is why we have human stewards.

    This type of penalty does not make me happy and I don't have favourite drivers. I just like things to be fair. And those barriers should have water within.

    Well, if the stewards had acted quick and given Neuville a penalty before the power stage started, I guess Ogier would have taken it easier. So in that way it was not fair.

    Regarding that chicane and how it should be built, I don't think it should have been there at all. It was not even necessary for the stage average speed being too high.

    Loeb also moved the barrier(only on the exit though) on the power stage and didn't get penalty and scored one point.

    Thats what I mean... driver's take every cut and advantage they can, those crappy barriers were asking to be clipped.

    Theese chicanes are used to slow cars down on the entry to villages or cities, due to improve safety of spectators or citizens just accidentaly passing by. If there was not the chicane, cars would be entering next right corner about 40kph faster, (i guess) and there was a lot of spectators on the outside on the finish straight.

    They could have just put the finish a bit earlier, where tarmac started?

    EDIT: Maybe the chicane was indeed to allow a big spectator area in the outside of the last corner...otherwise they wouldn't have had space for a big spectator area.
