    Sorry I should have explained better, leaving because of an issue is understandable and reasonably common, I meant more if a driver simply drives off everytime? For example if Ostberg (or another driver) now decided not to bother with end of stage interviews at all.

    it happens, when they are particularly pissed off. still, I think sponsors warmly suggest to stop and show their hat. Also as personal branding for drivers, is better to show your face to fans if u want to engage them (meaning social followers, merch selling, attracting more sponsors, ...)
    then, as in ostberg case maybe, sometimes they just want to send messages with a bit of public pressure to manufacturers or suppliers.

    How long it takes for a driver to complete the whole event "recce"? I mean, passing thru all of the stages.
    Cuz Racing at 150kmh it takes 2 hours to complete all stages

    two days, occasionally three. They do two consecutive passes of each stage

    Wow, thats a lot! WRC is the most "dificult" racing series in several aspects, right?
    From 2 to 3 days of recce to promotion (tv/internet/audience) to ALL the work on and with the streets, houses, locals, governments, public on the track, the access itself, helicopters, safety, rescue, marshalls...
    Its crazy to imagine all the work behind it! Amazing...

    A Welshman, a Spaniard, an Italian and a Norwegian/Swede walked into a Naivasha bar.
    "Guess it has been a tough morning at the rally lads. What would you like ?" asked the barman

    WRC Calendar History from 1998 to 2003. Introduction of Cyprus, Deutschland and Turkey, as well as a visit to China. The format changed here to clover leaf and single service park as well as into the weekend.

    Random... again:
    I was thinking about something kinda obvious but it was interesting to think about...
    World racing championships are always "on social media" posting content, promoting themselves, showing clips, posting those "Oh, we cant wait for the next round in 30 days" or nowdays posting engaging things...
    Same for American motorsport, but they focus more on the cars and drivers... I think? But its the same thing... every day on the internet.

    BUT... when it comes to european championships like euro rally, euro motocross, euro rallycross, euro autocross, euro supermoto... they dont spend much time on "content" and "promotion". It looks more all about the racing, not the "propaganda". I mean, erc is the biggest european championship among these mentioned and you see one thing or another regarding "next race this weekend" but it is almost nothing compared to world and american series.
    And I like to think that I respect THIS a lot... Idk, its getting tired the "you have to post things every day to stay relevant". Idk... I know its good because of sponsorships and stuff.. but hey... great job european championships!
