    Hard to agree Est. Tanak lead from SS1 to the finish; Neuville was always close and won the PS but all Yaris drivers managed to win stages (11 against 8 i20 wins) while Mikkelsen struggled with his car set-up all event long. The Yaris was also more reliable, with only those PS brake issues for Tanak against Sordo’s gearbox failure at the end of leg 2 (plus Neuville fuse issue after a stall). All considered, the Yaris was, as usual, the best car.

    well, maybe yes but i was talking more about speedwise, still i say there wasnt much between them (Tänak 8 stage wins, Neuville 7 stage wins) and Hyundai has upped massively their game on tarmac.

    Difficult to isolate the driver and car performance. Judging by Tänak's comments, he was playing it safe and not pushing max, whereas I would assume Neuville was driving 110%, leading into relatively equal times. But then again, Sordo had also a great pace.

    Suninen was basically doing same times as Meeke and Latvala when they were fighting Ogier. Sure he was first on the road, but the roads were quite dusty for first cars.
    Afaik Msport had close to no development on Fiesta since Corsica.

    Fat head.. Sunninen said himself he has nothing to lose, only to set fast times. Meeke and Latvala where driving for 2nd and 3rd overall, a constructors championship, and neither had any room for mistake, and driving for their place in the team next year. Meeke didn't even do the event last year.

    But then again, Suninen's first ever tarmac rally in a WRC car was exactly a year ago, and previously he has always been a bit down on pace.

    When you have a free mind, and no noose around your kneck, no target for the rally, previous karting pedigree.. in a Ford that is obviously quick on tarmac, as Evans was leading Corsica, and a clean road.. your not going to be slow.

    Usually 1-2-3's are "bad" and mean that there is not that wide competition, but I think the most beautiful thing about Toyota's straight flush in Germany was that it wasn't because of that (lack of competition).
