    He went off twice, and was lucky to do it in safe places both times.

    1) Neuville is away only 30 points. Yes, his situation is not perfect, but you can not completely eliminate his chances. Tänak was after Argentina 28 points away from lead and was leading 3 rallies later with 4 points.

    2) Yes, I'm Estonian and yes, I'm hope Tänak will win. But I don't hope he will win because of bad luck / not-driver-caused technical issues for others. From that perspective I more hope Tänak will get what he deserves - the title.

    More like it showed that saving 4 mediums for most of the loop is faster than driving on 5/6 hards combined with mediums like everyone else did.

    I certainly don't believe he was consistently posting 5+ stage times through friday and first stage on saturday just because he was holding back.

    Toyota got better than last year, but still
    seemed like the slowest car here.

    Surprised over the lack of comments after Rally Turkey finish...

    Maybe rally ended like most of us wanted?

    (Not that I wanted Tanak out the way it happened)

    Looked at Fantasy WRC. Point scoring system must be way wrong in my opinion.

    Tidemand almost scored as much points as Tanak. Anyone?

    Every stage position in top 15 (top 10 on short stages) gives points. Tidemand drove almost all stages in top 10. Tänak skipped five stages and was outside top 15 on two on Sunday.

    One thing I dislike about their system is the driver pricing - car has no effect on the value. This way Østberg in the R5 could more expensive than Tidemand in the WRC car.
