    Ford has every right to swap positions of drivers and do whatever they want as long as it is not against rules.

    I think its also fair to criticize them in these cases for non fair play. In the end it wont change anything.

    The sad part about it is, just like with Ogier shenanigans in Sweden PS. Once they do it so blatantly, Hyundai and Toyoto wont have any other choice but to do the same when they are in a similar position to have an equal chance.

    But hey, as long as it is in the rules. I will still continue being critical of non sportsmanship actions.
    How long have you been watching rallying out of interest? I can't see anything new that M-Sport have done this weekend?

    First time I see a team having to slow down both 2nd and 3rd driver for a 5-time world champion.

    I am quite sure this is first time that has ever happened.

    It's the ridiculousnes of letting Evans drop for 5th instead of 6th on the road and now get Suninen penalty before PS so Ogier drives 7th instead of 8th. What's the real gain? 0.1s?

    That's completely new level of "doing everything for lead driver". Certainly setting new levels of how far you could go.
    It must be worth it or they wouldn't do it. Even if it just gives a psychological boost.

    It's a professional sport and a team can do what it likes to maximise its results.

    They do that on almost every rally. Sometimes even send 2 if there are not enough cars.

    Yeah? My respect goes for them not hiding behind stupid excuses masquerading the circus. How about You?

    So you agree it is a circus, but respect them for not masquerading it. Fair enough, I can get behind that.

    Although I found it hilarious when they asked Ogier about the incident with Evans and he just completely avoided answering that after one stage.
