    He has often been forced to tow the team line. For example, using the same setup as the lead cars or using older generations of equipment.
    Happiness is using the side windows more than the windscreen

    It's likely this happened after the first loop in the morning. With Mikkelsen first at that point and Neuville ahead of him it's likely.

    I can remember Neuville and Ogier participating on every rally just like everyone else... finishing far behind for some reasons of their own as well.

    Another great Neuville/Ogier fight. At this pace their cars won’t probably hold till the end; for the championship sake I hope the Fiesta won’t be the first to break.

    Nice first day in Turkey! I'm really loving this old style rally, where 16 seconds is a matter of a stage or two worth of a difference. We've got at least an outsider chance at a four way battle for the lead, and realistically anybody can win from lucky punctures and failures.

    "The two drivers who started first on the road are in the lead the first night: it's a surprise, but we knew a lot could happen because of the rough conditions. a few drivers also stopped during the afternoon, I do not feel I have increased the pace in the long afternoon special, "said Ogier.

    And the French driver, champion of the world in title, to engage: "The truth is that we miss a bit of speed.It is not possible to follow if others add a little. It's not easy, but we fight, the race can be won on something other than speed, we still have our chances, we'll have to take risks, for sure, but also a bit of success. tension is exciting, it's nice to have battles. "

    Yes I like it as well. 10s up one stage 10s down next. It's probably a combination of a new rally and conditions though. With new rally (and without onboards from before) drivers couldn't just learn every corner by watching video for 3 weeks like it is on other rallies.
