    The only other way would be to make the final day a full day so there would be enough stages to allow sufficient changes in times to affect the leaderboard. But I guess that's not what they want and prefer the cruise then drama for tv...

    Restarting is not a problem, but there shouldn't be a difference between a crew who retire at the first hurdle and a crew who crash on the last stage - or worse, use retiring at last control as a loophole for longer service or better final stage time. If it's argued that more distance is covered but agreed restarting is not a problem, it's only the rules that push them back to the next leg. Sure J4mie would have accepted restarting immediately (the purpose of OTL not being the point)!

    How about scratch+10 for all the leg's stages, not just the ones missed, would reflect better in the standings???

    One of the rules is that as soon as you’re OTL you get penalties for every stage after that. So even though we had a completely healthy car and we’re keen to drive some mileage, there was no incentive to.

    Maybe you should be able to restart at the start of the next section of you wanted to? Would mean less of a penalty.
    If the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off!

    Usually just not enough time to haul the car back to service, let alone fix it.

    EDIT: or were you talking about OTL situation? I didn’t even know you can restart after OTL.

    I've posed this before and response was that it could encourage potentially dangerous scrambles to recover crashed cars and also puts pressure on officials on tight itineraries. All retirements should be treated equally too IMO.

    I love the fact Chris keeps rallying so close to his heart, wish the people up there in the high places would share his same enthusiasm to it so we wouldn't be deprived of a rally in the UK & Ireland.

    Chris Harris is one of very few top motoring journalists. I like his content a lot

    New suspension for all the ExtremeE trucks! They can push harder from now on. Some will crack eventually, but you can already notice some difference on the sideways moves. Nice! Really into this concept. Qualy 1 is "rally" style, against the clock. Very cool
