    Been long overdue.

    Unlucky puncture while leading Mexico, when he should've been finishing 2nd. Car issues/ puncture/ time penalty combined when Ogier pipped him to the podium on the last stage in Argentina, and then inexcusably chucking away 2nd and then 3rd place in rally portugal on the last day/stage. Overstepping the limit in Finland as well when that should've been another podium, despite the consequences of hitting that rock being unlucky vs how Latvala got off lightly.

    Story of what might have been this year. It's poor conversion considering the positions he's been in, and that will make it doubly annoying for Meeke/Toyota because these tiny margins would've had him comfortably 4th in the championship and Toyota better off in the manufacturers.

    However on the flipside of that, it's not like he's had a bad season in terms of being lost and miles off the pace in his first year in the Yaris. Let's see what he can do for the rest of the season, Turkey will be difficult though - 4th on the road now and wasn't there last year. Yaris struggled a bit for pace too (compared to how fast it is normally).

    heres a short clip of the movie just released now (because of the win) https://www.facebook.com/otttanakmov...0800513232768/

    in the behind the scenes photos i see a lot of pics with him smiling and etc, i think its just that he is so concentrated during the stages

    IMO they should have been coached this way already 5-6 rallies ago.
    Your only comment the whole rally and it couldn't even be a decent one

    They’re hardly going to make him look like a dick in his own movie.

    This year in Corsica and Germany, both strong events for him previously. He is driving 4-6th place pace all rally. Incredible.
    Maybe Ogier is not as fast as he once was?

    But his mood seems to have darkened the better he's performed.

    'Meeke Bashing' is a virus.. Apparently there is no cure just yet. He's a bad case.
