    First guy to the corner chooses the raceline. And Ekström was first.

    However it´s horrible placing such fence in the inside of first corner.

    You are both wrong. Race line is ok, but it isn't a free pass. The rules are NOT ment to be interpreted so that if you're 2 cm ahead you can push whoever is alongside you into whatever stationary object you see. Ekströms move was considered a "dangerous maneuver" and rightfully so. Petter turned right and braked but had nowhere to go.

    Ekstrom isn't obliged to open the door. Solberg was always going for a disappearing gap.

    There was supposedly a meeting before the race about this and the drivers were warned.


    Anyway was looking forward to an interesting final and then in the first corner the driver that lead all weekend is out and the one stays in the lead is likely to get disqualified. Instantly killed any excitement.

    Ekström was off the track with all 4 wheels, that's a bit more than just closing the door

    Happy with the DQ but having that tyre barrier on turn 1 was a bad design and an accident was probably inevitable at some point. Pity it came in the Final.

    OK.
    It took 5 hours for judges to make that decision, seems to me that it was not clear case.
    I´m ready to admit that it was right decision.

    Having a Monster-sponsored Championship and a Monster-sponsored Team (PSRX VW) does make it a bit tricky when a Red Bull car clashes with them..
