    Super-close again.

    But Tanak still finds the fastest time.

    Interestingly on straights Citroëns hit the highest top speed (194 km/h), the Toyotas the lowest (barely 180 km/h) but Tänak is still reasonably fastest. It looks like Toyota opted for shorter gearing. Hyundai and M-Sport were somewhere between with some 186 km/h.

    Funny how they complain about the road being dirty. There was basically no dirt visible on the stage and anti-cuts everywhere. The only dirty thing was the straw in chicanes.

    this was a great idea IMO to use the SD stage as SS1...the other rallies should do the same, not those useless super specials

    Hmm, I disagree. The don't need to use shakedown as SS1 to avoid using bullshit stages. They can use whatever normal stage instead. If they want to use SD they could at least reverse it. Driving the same stage over and over again adds some risk and here in CZ we actually had a tragic accident on a stage which the crew did already fourth time including shakedown (you may remember the name of Martin Semerád, once Pireli Star Driver, whose career ended with that).

    Sarrazin very slow on SS1. Possibly puncture or something...

    Anything is better than the Mickey mouse stages. Even another run through shakedown

    well, i agree with that, it must not be necessarily a SD stage again but a proper stage.

    I really like Monte version, two proper night stages on Thursday.

    There are some okay super specials too, Harju for example on Rally Finland

    Ogier looks really impressive through SS01. I'm not Ogier fan but his drive was brilliant, not so fast enough as Ott, but spectacular to watch
