    Because Auriol and Kankkunen were so dominant and he was struggling almost whole season with the Celica?

    Yes, there are (of every W2L event I think), but quite little in English if you're looking for that. For example there'a a two-part review (80mins+) of the 1995 1000 Lakes (in Finnish though):

    A video for those who understand French. On board from Kankkunen’s crash, Subaru guys trying to stop McRae, Max Mosley explaining the cheat, interviews & discussions (Sainz, Auriol, Max Mosley etc.)

    1996 Rally Portugal here

    Check out from 3:35 onwards the most stupid rally spectator you are ever likely to see.

    Ironically and sadly, 1995 Rally Finland which was also just a F2 World Championship event, had a little bit similar incident which involved a fatality. Similar in the sense that people were walking on the middle of the road, but otherwise not comparable at all. They were walking in the same direction as the stage, it was raining and they couldn't hear under their umbrellas Bruno Thiry's Group N Escort which came fast from behind. Thiry was driving as a 0 car and the people walking on the road simply didn't expect him at all. Also Thiry had no time to see the people on the road until it was too late and he hit a young woman who died. Very sad incident. The 1995 Rally Finland links posted above deal with that incident as well.

    As far as I remember, the cause for Sainz leaving Toyota was the conflict between Castrol becoming a title sponsor for the team and Sainz' relations to Repsol.

    What the hell happens there? He hates the driver and wants to slow him down? Heavily drunk?

    Reminds me of this drunk idiot in Finland in 2012 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6G32N8o-1I

    I'm surprised there is so little coverage available in English

    If I remember well, when Sainz was going from Toyota to Lancia, it was not sure that Lancia will finish as factory team. And when italian team decided to definitely stop the project, it was too late for Carlos to find a different seat. For Carlos this season was completely disaster...
