    Perhaps you have not been following this from the start. In that case I recommend you to re-read the decision which says exactly what Tanak now repeated.

    I'll repeat what has been stated before:

    Ogier asked before the stage what would happen and was told it would be given to stewards (so likely penalty).
    And yes Neuville moved it a lot on the first pass so I guess that's why Ogier asked. It also can be that Ogier moved it in the PS by accident and not on purpose.

    For the Estonians, is Martin calling ''narrows'' towards the end there?

    That's interesting. Kankkunen had always English notes with a couple of Finnish words thrown in

    Also, if I understood correctly, I noticed during Monte and Sweden, how on a long straight, Järveoja counts down the distance to the next corner, like 300...200...100...I don't think anyone else does that?

    English words are "smaller" so you will take less time to pronounce them and can have a better rhythm on giving them to the driver. Also you can give more info in the same amount of time.
    I guess this is why even non english speakers sometimes use them.

    My heartiest contrafibularities on your summary of the reason for non-anglophones using the tongue of Shakespeare, Dickens and Bowie!
    Use of long words, especially in rallying, can cause a certain amount of pericombobulation!

    I would say with my small Estonian knowledge that it's a more efficient pace note language than Finnish because the words are generally a bit shorter than in Finnish, although the languages are otherwise quite similar.
