    No doubt the car has make significant progress with a complete chassis upgrade now installed. But to be realistic, Ogier and Neuville are not, on pure pace, 2/3 mins slower than Tanak. Therefore I think the road position flattered Otsberg slightly on Day 1, but when on a equal footing with Tanak on road position on Saturday, he was put to bed. He is not a rally winner. I think Citroen are more concerned with showcasing the turnaround with their car, than they are about anything else, to try and tempt Ogier back.

    It's hard for you to swallow that Østberg was only 32sec behind Tanak and not the 2/3min you expected isn't it...?
    I think that's quite good value for money considering Toyota did near 20 days of test before Finland and Citroën only 3.

    kinda off-topic question but do Citroen and Hyundai also test close to their base? we know that m-sport has its own track/road close to the base and Toyota can test in finland close to Puuppola.

    In 2016 when Meeke won in Finland he had road position advantage for all 3 days (championship running order for both Friday and Saturday (8th on the road out of 9 WRCs) and then reverse positions for Sunday, so last as he was leading.).

    When I pointed it out previously the diehard-fan claimed it had close to nothing to say. Now it suddenly matters for Østberg

    In Finland the ruts were huge on the second run of stages so the later cars were also disadvantaged at times...

    But probably not much difference from first to tenth WRC car. Except maybe ruts being plowed to more WRC car like from R2 car tracks
