    Yes, but then based on points from the full Rally2 field.

    I think there should still be options for entering for WRC2 points and not entering for points, with a correlation to entry fees. Besides, I haven't seen any occasions this year where someone is not nominated for any points but is making top 5 times. In the past this was an issue, sometimes also related to well-backed drivers who had already done their maximum number of WRC2 events in a year (some drivers also tactically skipped Monte from their points)

    Yes. I think the perfect solution would be

    - One single WRC2 series
    - Manufacturers can enter the series and nominate their drivers to collect manufacturer points for them
    - Any non-manufacturer-nominated driver is a "privateer", and can collect points in a privateer cup.
    - (Like mentioned in my previous post, also possible to enter a rally with cheaper entry fee, without nominating for any points)

    Entry fees for teams below Rally1 should be kept at a minimum, to boost entry numbers.
    Not a big deal for FIA anyway I guess.

    Kajto has published an onboard video from his heavy crash on the last stage of Rally Estonia (plus shots from his win in Turkey and second place in Sardegna):

    WRC 2
    It’s a two-way Scandinavian fight here between 2017 champion Pontus Tidemand and co-driver Patrik Barth from Sweden, and Norwegians Mads Østberg / Torstein Eriksen.

    Tidemand is 18 points clear, but a driver only counts his best five scores. He already has five, so if the Skoda Fabia pilot scores in Monza, he must discard his lowest score of 15 to add to his total.

    Østberg has scored in only four rounds so can keep whatever he bags in Italy.

    To aid Tidemand, Toksport has entered Jan Kopecký, and the Czech champion’s presence could be crucial. If he places himself between Tidemand and Østberg in the Monza result, it will severely dent the Citroën C3 driver’s chances.

    A Tidemand win, second for Kopecký and third for Østberg means the title goes back to Tidemand. If Østberg wins, the title is his.

    The teams’ championship has already been won by Toksport.

    WRC 3
    This is a little easier…….

    Marco Bulacia is two points ahead of Jari Huttunen, with Kajetan Kajetanowicz 15 points off the lead. Nobody else can win the title.

    Drivers count their best four scores from their first five nominated events. Bulacia must drop 12 points if he scores highly, while both Huttunen and Kajetanowicz can keep all they gain (Kajetanowicz will drop a zero score).

    The odds are, therefore, in favour of Huttunen, who would take the crown if he finishes first or second. If Bulacia wins the rally and Huttunen comes home third, then it gets incredibly complicated. And we mean incredibly……

    The co-drivers’ title will be fought out between leader Mikko Lukka (Huttunen), Maciej Sczepaniak (Kajetanowicz) and Marcelo Der Ohannesian (Bulacia), who has only partnered the Bolivian for part of the season.
