    i think it's just because we already knew those rallies before.

    A lot of people don't get the WORLD RALLY feeling at any WRC event these days.

    Not a good drive by Ogier in my opinion. He drove on a very wet track, got overtaken by 2 competitors and then went off, hitting the barriers and losing 2 more places. In typical Ogier fashion, the car was unharmed and he continued (haven't I see this before? )
    Later he went off in the gravel again and went to the pits to change nose (so maybe the contact with the barriers did damage the car a little). His team was close to last in category, but later they managed to recover places thanks to favourable safety cars / tyre changes.
    I find it still a bit of a pity that Ogier is having this big WEC chance when Neuville did so well in his one and only Touring Car race in 2019 https://tintopguru.wordpress.com/tag/thierry-neuville/

    Ott Tänak on the Betsafe blog about Dirtfish' article "Is WRC+ Really Changing Rallying?"

    "This option has certainly completely changed the nature of the rally. In the old days, the rally was more of an adventure, where it was important to write a good legend with two passes. Today, everyone can adjust their legend from video to someone who is faster, which is why racing has become very intense, with young people learning through video tests and taking it as a circuit race. Of course, we also work through the videos to take advantage of the experience of all the riders in case someone made a mistake or got a surprise somewhere."

    I can understand about correcting/adjusting the notes, checking difficult places from All Live but hasn't the video part and checking the legend (and memorizing it) available for couple of decades already? At least as long as Ott has been driving? No?

    I ’ve heard Grönholm was one of the first to film their recces. But other drivers’ onboards weren’t available until 2014
