    i just cant see where they would slot those in second half of the season, Argentina too. im quite sure they wont go ahead at all
    Looks difficult to slot them in....possibly make Turkey 1 week later and slot one in between New Zealand and Turkey.

    The WRC gear is still in containers at the port in Mexico ready to leave... but don't know where they'll get sent to!

    Contrary to the postponings of Argentina, Portugal and Sardegna, the organizers of Rally Finland are quite confident they either drive the rally or cancel it, postponing will not happen https://yle.fi/urheilu/3-11276238

    But F1 needs 8 events to crown a champion. So 8 out of 22.
    so thats under 50% then. if we put this model into WRC then like 4-5 rallies only needed? and we have had 3 already.

    since there is huge pause now, i looked what the standings were last year after 3 rounds.


    2019
    1. Ogier 61
    2. Evans 28
    3. Neuville 55
    4. Tänak 55
    5. Suninen 1
    6. Lappi 20

    2020

    1. Ogier 62 / + 1
    2. Evans 54 / + 26
    3. Neuville 42 / - 13
    4. Tänak 38 / - 17
    5. Suninen 26 / + 25
    6. Lappi 24 / + 4

    as you can see the biggest gainers are one former and curren M-sport drivers Evans and Suninen. Ogier and Lappi basically the same as they were doing with Citroen, Lappi would have more without the fire of course. Biggest losses for Neuville and Tänak who both have had one zero point rally compared to last year at the same time.

    if, by some miracle, the season will resume at some point, its very difficult for Tänak to defend his title. It all depends if the season resumes at all and how many rallies there will be, if only 1-3 rallies then its very difficult.

    Ogier says he might still do one more season if this becomes a stub, but he's not interested at all in the new 2022 spec cars, and he thinks no one is.

    I find it fascinating that a environmental friendly person such as he (considering his other work and statement) is against the idea of hybrid racing.

    I don't think it's about the hybrid technology, more about the suspension and transmission restrictions coming for 2022 which have been criticized by many drivers.
