    To answer the #6 post

    Neuville went after the pack because he choose to... and thats why he got a 4 min penalty on top of his time in the final classification, he did that because he wanted the road to be as clear as possible from the loose gravel but also to follow Ogiers lines and breaking points.

    Isn't just the greatest feeling in world when you try and be helpful to others especially when you educate them on trivial things ?? I feel a level of accomplishment that can compare with very few things in life...

    I feel like the spider luring innocent victims into my den using a false perception of kindness so i can feast on them later when they dare argue with me... ain't i the best thing this forum has apart from the ignoring function ?

    Yes. But not for the power stage.

    Didn't Loeb finish second in Monte once? Early on when it had only just been introduced, think it was when he was in the blue 'privateer' Xsara with the Gauloises/GoFast livery.

    Edit: Yep, 2006 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%A9bastien_Loeb#2006
    Don't think it was the WRCs strongest era, would definitely be difficult to achieve that now.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    Because it's the promotor who has the right to decide the starting order for the PS.

    Nestii, in a ranking from 1 to 10 how difficult is it to understand all the rules behind WRC? And in your opinion, how much do you think they can demotivate a curious potential fan like you and many others to follow the sport?

    It's actually just a bit confusing I started fallowing WRC during Rally Poland in the 2017, and managed to pick up quite a lot of Rules, just by watching and listening to Comentators. It didn't really demotivate me, it was just a bit annoying sometimes....I got a hang of it by now, just had a problem with Road Order and such. So i'll give it a 3/10 on my account.

    My mother on the other hand, who's 50+, and started watching with me during Rally Australia 2017 got quite demotivated. it wasn't until Rally Sweden 2018 that I explained the most basic rules to her. She got so demotivated, that she skipped Monte Carlo enitrely But I managed to keep her intrested. Just asked her and she said it is like a 8/10. Now It's cool, as she happily watches Rallies with me ^^

    I guess It's just important to have somebody explain some rules for you. Hard to get them on your own, but it's possible.

    Huge respect for your mother that actually bother initially. Love that.
    You are like me when I start to follow WRC, struggled a lil bit at the beginning but then the challenge and the spirit of the sport was so great that I managed to understand most of it and follow every event.

    People like your mother though... It's a pity because I know a lot of people that could be interested to the sport, like all my friends that I have convinced, over the years, to follow me to watch WRC rally in Sardinia (watching live in the stages) and that really loved watching the cars but after a while they really give up with the sport because it's a big barrier for the casual fan following all the action, also due to some complicated rules.
    Anyway thanks for your answers
