    Could somebody explain me some stuff ? ._.

    Hello ! I have a question that has been bothering me for a while. On what condition can a WRC driver restart the rally, after a crash ? Like Lappi in Rally Mexico this year.

    If the car is ready for the next day he can restart it... it does not matter if he retires of a mechanical or crash.

    He cannot change car though so if the mechanics can fix it and the FIA approves that the car is safe to drive he can do super-rally the next day.

    It's worth noting also that super-rally has heavy time penalties - I think it's five minutes per missed stage. So a driver will often restart intending to get one or two points, or just to practice on the stages and get data for the team. Or (if the driver is fast) he might try and grab some points from the power stage, but that's it. You can't get a good result if you super-rally.

    One of the most important things is that the rollcage inside the car has to be undamaged. But it doesn't break so easily.

    You don't even know they are 7 minutes now. Man just needs to peek a look at stage times list and notice it immediately.

    The advantage of superrally (whatever starting order rules are) is that your team can repair the car all night long, while normal competitors have only a few minutes for checks and adjustments.

    Okay, thanks for Answers guys ! ^^

    Tho...could also somebody explain me whatís going on with the road order on Sunday in Rally Mexico ? Why is Neuville first on the road, even tho heís not the one with the worst time ? Does super-rally put you after the whole pack ?

    Actually, the teams have a fixed service time of 3 hours to repair the car and the car must be placed into parc ferme 4 hours before the start of the next day's leg. So, in some case it may not be possible to get the full 3 hours.

    46.2 has the time penalties for missing a stage
    47.1 & 47.2 have the service time allowed and technical requirements to restart.

    Regarding road order for Sunday, the order is P1 drivers in reverse classification order from the day before. The crews that run Rally 2 will start after the others. Hence why Neuville was first on the road again. Unlike what ESTR has written, the rule has been like this for many years.
    45.2 covers this area.

    All regulations for these kind of things can be found here if you're interested: FIA Sporting Regulations

    Another important factor is that you can score manufacturer points through Rally2. Like in Mexico, All of Latvala, Lappi and Suninen scored manufacturer points through Rally2. The non-manufacturer cars in between are just counted out. You can score manufacturer points even if you're 2 hours behind the winner, as long as you're at least the second best finisher in your team.
