    Marshals "job" (not aware of anyone getting paid to be a marshal) is to ensure the safe running of the stage mainly centered around spectator safety and assistance of a crew in the event of an incident. Going onto a live stage to move rocks isnt exactly supposed to be part of the role however those of us who have marshalled will have moved rocks at some point. Its up to the crews normally not to hit them.

    Well, That only means they have placed their oil cooler in the wrong place, or their protection is not good enough.

    Anyway, it shouln't happen. A big rock may damage the suspension, but nothing else.

    You're right. That's only potential danger some rock to fly by a car and hit someone.

    One thing is for sure - no spectator could go out and remove those rocks. This is Portugal so you'd have about four meathead officers coming straight towards you.

    It's just unlucky I think. This exact same thing could have happened on a corner free from people. It's just rallying, the road is evolving all the time.

    It's sad for Tanak and for the championship.
    He was outside the cobblestone road. He was making a cutting of almost 2 metres. All crews make this huge cut but it takes its risks.

    After they graded the roads and laid sand to smooth them, maybe Toyota didnt think the road could be so rough and didnt get their suspension soft enough here.

    Hyundai have also had their problems with 'weak' front suspension breaking easily in the past.

    The decades of experience of M-Sport may be a big reason why they rarely seem to get such damage.

    Video of Tänak hitting stones. The filmer even zooms on the stones before Tänak. After he hits them, the marshalls go throw them out.
    So N.O.T. : Not the way you wanted it. No car can stand such a big stone.

    Yeah, but that was outside the raceline. And to me it looks like Tanak is not cutting. Neuville did cut after going wide in the righthander.
