    One of them were a Norwegian comedian who only did day 1 as a part of his new TV-Show "Champion of the Amateurs", where he met top athletes from Norway, and tried their sports That's basically why I remember that! I don't usually remember those kind of details, and often use EWRC

    Would be very nice if Citroen and others could put on colored mirrors for Mexico, to make it easier to distinguish what pair is inside!

    Very hard to see the flag on the vent on the roof. Easier to see the mirror in 150 km/h
    Startnumber is impoissible to see, so if you do not know based on startlist, there is no way of knowing what car it is.

    They only planned to do day 1, I cannot remember the exact reason. Probably costs. He actually managed to avoid last place (even when you remove the ones who retired and restarted on day 2).

    So back to the topic, it is unknown how difficult/easy was for Ogier on day 2? Seems it was already difficult on day 1 on 2nd loop.

    They did break rules, otherwise they wouldn't have been penalised 4 minutes.

    But the penalty was less than the advantage gained from breaking the rules, which is not the best situation.

    I wouldn't class booking in late as 'breaking rules' - merely playing the system....a calculated gamble, which paid off. The fault with the rules is being able to do this and benefit.

    This time I didn't follow the rally as I'm few thousands miles southeren from Europe enjoying in warm sun and sea...
    Looking at results first what was almost a shock to me: Breen on 2nd position?? With crapy C3?? Well done....and were is last year's winner? So much for my pickems.....thx JML.
    Disastrous weekend for Msport....
    More than solid result for Ostberg.
    And all factory drivers finished rally (Meeke of course must be exception), that speaks for technical durability.
    Looking forward to Mexico-Neuville, prepare to sweep the stages on 1st day.
