    I read the Steward's decision and I think it is strange. The normal penalty for car non-compliance with regulations is disqualification, even if there was no obvious advantage gained.

    An interesting interview with Linda Jackson here @ the Monte-Carlo, saying their program in the WRC is until the end of 2019, have we heard that before or not?
    If in doubt, flat out!

    My rally review:

    M-Sport:
    Ogier as expected, hard to judge how things have changed relative to others speed-wise from end of last season. Faster and more at home in the car than at Monte last year for sure. Quite a few moments but most had them.

    Evans all in all very good performance and better than I expected. That said it is a bit of a reality check to those that said he will fight for title in any car this year, don't think he's there just yet. Also remember that historically tarmac is his best surface.

    Boufier Ok, specially considering the co-driver issue. But shows that "local specialists" might have a hard time jumping in with little experience with the cars.

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    Toyota:
    Certainly look like the main manu favorite now.

    Tanak
    Star of the rally. I was warning for half of last year that the move to Toyota is risky and he might end like Martin. Certainly doesn't look bad now even though it's just one rally. Moves him up as the main title contender with Ogier and Neuville.

    Latvala
    Slower than Tanak in the vast majority of stages. Result is good but wonder how it will work inside the team if this continues.

    ----------------------------------
    Citroen:
    Encouraging result, but apart from the clear dry tarmac stage(s) they always looked like the slowest of the 4 cars.

    Meeke
    Again have to praise him for staying on the road and settling for worse result instead of the charging of last year.
    Breen
    Decent times when things work, big problem with road position on Saturday.

    --------------------------------------
    Hyundai

    Neuville
    The mistake on Friday was very similar to what Meeke, Breen, Tanak and Latvala all did at that stage, so a bit unlucky there. That said on Saturday he was over-pushing a lot of times with at least 4-5 moments and that nearly cost him the position against Evans. Excellent on Sunday in the conditions.

    So for him last year continues, he just seems to try too hard and is unnecessarily stressed.

    Mikkelsen
    Obviously very unlucky with the technical issue. Looking at times (without sunday cruise) he'd be fighting around Tanak's position, which is a big improvement for him with Hyundai on tarmac compared to where he was in Spain.

    Sordo
    Well it's one mistake but on a tricky place where you really should watch out . He was matching Ogier in splits at that point in stage so it's not like he was taking it easy.
    More so it came when he was the only Hyundai in decent points and it follows what happened last year. At this point in his career it's not like he's hired to show speed, he is there to ensure good points from those rallies. Instead just like last year he gets bad results on "his" rallies because of pushing too much (last year Germany and Spain).

    Think they said it before about 3 year program.

    Some interesting bits:

    - "Hiring Ogier or Mikkelsen was not the question of budget" LOL, well maybe she is right and they refused to drive the C3 no matter what money Citroen offered. But Matton said they didn't had money for Mikkelsen when Hyundai offered him a spot.

    - "Current commitment gives them enough publicity" That kind of says it all, they rather use Loeb for a few rallies than getting 3rd car cause they know they won win champ. anyway

    - "Commitment past 2019 will depend on results in 2018" Looks like we have to hope for miracles then.

    I think Evans on Michelins was surprisingly similar as his 2017 season.
    - Winning stages at times
    - Off the pace at times
    - Losing positions on Sunday
    - Being overtaken by Neuville on PS
    - Finishing 6th
