    That's true. Magalhaes was the biggest disappointment of this rally for me. He was seventh overall. Even behind Grzegorz Grzyb. Grzyb is a good driver, but there are no such roads in Poland. I thought they suit Magalhaes perfectly.

    Looks like he just lost the rear end and it pitched them into the tree.

    You are right. Llarena himself explains it in the same way here:

    The only sad thing about @FabianKreim’s time penalty being removed after the police stopped him is that I didn’t get to use this line in the script:
    ‘Kreim doesn’t pay’

    We all know that without the pop-off issues Magalhães would likely be fighting for the podium, but not for the lead. Like in the previous seasons, Lukyanuk is on a class of his own and only tech issues or driving mistakes can stop him to get the title, which he deserves for a long time. Still, let’s hope Magalhães and the others will be able to do better on the next events, putting more pressure on Luky and making ERC fight more interesting to follow.

    Already quite interesting is the U27 fight, with the duel between Gago and Sesks. Gago, the most talented Portuguese young driver, hasn’t yet plans to compete the whole U27, but the amazing wins at Azores and Canarias may help his sponsors to give him a chance; fingers crossed! Sesks has been the ERC revelation and it’s almost unbelievable how fast he can be with so little experience; certainly there’s a bright future ahead of him.

    Did he have those issues during the whole rally?

    Apparently yes, as he said the last stage was one of the few without ‘pop-off’ issues; he also complained about some wrong tyre choices and not having the right set-up. If we remember that last year he was fighting till the last SS with Kajto for P2, it’s easy to understand that he had a terrible rally this time. Better luck for the next one!

    Wish him a speedy recovery.

    The next JERC U28 round isn’t until July so hopefully he will be fully fit by then.
