    And Veiby as well: https://youtu.be/Ty9h4zEbT7o?t=31

    The point is that near everyone had such crash. Hell even never crashing Kopecký had a monstrous crash in 2003 in which he or his co-driver could have died - that crash was likely worse than those of Rovanperä, Tidemand and Veiby combined ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z47SZtahk20 ). Even Ogier had a crash which could have been fatal ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADPRs_AswDQ ) The point is to learn from the accidents not to be scared to crash from the beginning. You won't win anything if you drive thinking about how not to crash.

    Huh, I am tired, just reached home. Just wanted to tell that Rally Argentina is the best event in my mind, safety is actually very good, imagine any other event in the calendar where you have 100 000 spectators in 16 km? and no problems? And if you look at Rovanperas accident site. Did you see anyone walking or spectating there? No, because it was not allowed. Why tents were there? have you been on that stage? It is mostly stones and not very smooth surface, spectators come there couple of days before, they can put their tents there but they are not there during the stage.

    100% agree with you Bluuford, from what I experienced in Argentina 2017 spectator safety was very good. What really impressed me is how spectators policed themselves, if someone was in a bad place other responsible spectators were very quick to let them know that they needed to move to somewhere safer. 1000's of people who do not want a stage cancelled can actually self police themselves very well.
    I would go as far as to say the self controlling by spectators I witnessed in Argentina was better than what I have witnessed in NZ or Australia.

    Well the rest must be really Mother Teresa-esque people then, if the most biased award goes to Jouhki for praising that his client, who end up being a four-time runner-up for the title (and came 1 point shy of dethroning Loeb) would be a future champion

    Something you can find on every rally. Just one of those events that attracts every kind of "fans", could be said about motorsport in general.

    "I felt confident throughout the weekend, even when fighting for the podium. I felt that I had the situation under control at all times. We need to keep going in this direction."
    He added that while the changes didn't bring more speed out of the car, the increase in confidence allowed him to push for quicker stage times.
    "Putting on a new geometry doesn't get you from A to B any faster but if it gives you confidence that breeds speed and time. Before this rally, I was able to push to do good times but the car was a lot more nervous - you felt like a passenger," he explained.
    With no further gravel testing scheduled before Vodafone Rally de Portugal (17-20 May) Meeke decided to use Sunday's three stages as an opportunity to experiment with different set-ups ahead of the championship's next round.
