    While I don't disagree with your point, to be fair, the distance covered in the first four rallies of 1995 will roughly match the SS length of the entire 2020 season, if the last two rounds happen. And there were very few repeated stages in 1995.

    Back then they knew it coming in to the season.
    Also, Sainz probably lost the championship due to his injuries after the mountain-bike fall. It's quite similar with 2020 in the way that a retirement more (or in Sainz' case, one non-start) can be the tipping point.

    “The main focus for me is to be back at the top in 2022,” Mikkelsen told DirtFish.

    “I know that I can’t sit on the sidelines and wait for that to happen next year. Like I told you before, I am ready to invest in myself next season and I’m also ready to [do] WRC2.

    “Basically, I have to be in the best possible position [for 2022] and WRC2 is something I’m open to.”

    Chris Ingram Rally @ChrisIngramGB

    I bet over the next few days Elfyn will be announced as the 2020 WRC champion.
