    Doesn't shed any light as to why they did it for Germany. Only possible "hint" is that the "clarifications on measurements", ie. the 3cm overlap had to be done already for Germany.

    Actually if you compare with Corsica it was. The 1-2-3 comment is a little bit like saying Hyundai was fastest car in Corsica cause Neuville won.

    Neuville had same speed as Tšnak and faster than both other Toyotas, Sordo was also faster than both other Toyotas unlike Corsica and Ogier was about same speed as Latvala/Meeke before puncture. Ford lacked a top tarmac driver but stagetimes Suninen did were also very good compared with Toyotas.

    The question still remains as to what changes need to be done for Turkey. From the Germany talk from Toyota it seems that they were actually forced to follow the "correct" overhang even here.

    Btw. the comments from Toyota vs Citroen should come as no surprise to anyone. Off course Toyota will claim how it's all nonsense and pointless change, while Citroen will claim it was a massive advantage. Truth is likely somewhere between.

    exactly, i would say that the Hyunday was maybe the best overall car at Rally Germany. At least there wasnt nothing to choose between them and Toyota
