    Interesting, they used a joker on engine 1/7 and no new one since then. Maybe they felt it wasn't tested enough to actually run it in Finland?

    And Lappi actually ran the old front suspension in Finland and did rather well.

    Using the engine upgrade for Germany should be a no-brainer though - everyone likes more power !

    Nope; that was rumoured before the rally but Lappi told in the post event PC that the use of the front axle joker was vital for him to get a better set-up. https://www.nesterallyfinland.fi/inf...-conference-1/

    Exhaust/muffler silencer was installed for this test.

    Some questioned if it were a Hybrid but alas not.

    Seb saying what I mentioned and thought about the C3 previously. They now know how to fix issues and make the car better in one area, but then other problems arise and it effects other parts of the c3 "which is already a tricky car".

    It seems they've hit a wall in testing after working on things, and can't improve as things stand. The car is fundamentally flawed and it goes back to Matton and his management, and the risks the technical guys admittedly took in development and design. No driver can get totally on top of the car fully, not even the great Ogier.

    I've gained so much more respect and admiration for Seb since VW left. Unlikely he'll win the title this year imo (although anything can happen), but if Citroen can find some/any improvements for next year and Ogier can get a 6th title with 3 different manufacturers, then wow....

    Difficult for me as I dont fully support one of them, but I'd like Tanak to win the championship this year out of the big 3. However I'd also like Ogier to get a 3rd title with 3 different manufacturers before he retires, but if both of those outcomes happen in the next 2yrs, I'd then feel for Thierry. Chance he can finally finish ahead of Ogier this year and it still might not be enough to take the championship.

    Lappi said to Finnish media he tried some extreme setup changes in midday service, even the engineers said it wouldn't work. In the end he barely noticed any change. And he added that it was the same in Corsica.
