    Estonia was driven in a shorter format, forest stages only on Saturday and Sunday. There's even an article on this in the sporting regulations.

    This is not true. Only the two stages on Friday were driven in championship order and then Friday standings were reversed for whole Saturday.

    Look at the stickers on the car. It's his family business. But I'm not complaining. Without that sponsorship, no one would drive that third car.

    Greensmith pays for his drives, anyone with enough money can do the same.

    So far, hats off to Sordo, Suninen, Solberg and Rossel (big surprise). Gutted for Tanak; hopeful for Evans.

    interesting, it seems the last two stages suited Hyundai more?

    actually 3 last stages today were Hyundai 1-2. ok road position has a big say here too, especially in the case of Sordo but Ott started from third and set also very good times on last two stages and on SS6 it was even Hyundai 1-2-3.

    you dont have to tell me that

    what i meant was they werent so fast in the morning, well okay you could say Neuville wasnt because Sordo was but not also on SS1 and on SS3.

    anyway new day tomorrow, pace wise Loubet is catchable for Tänak but thats it basically.

    Will be interesting to see how long Suninen can hold on to his pace and yet AGAIN we have tasty fight between Ogier and Neuville.

    Esapekka Lappi Rally
    @EsapekkaLappi

    Unfortunately we won’t be back out again tomorrow.
    Our pace was really promising so it’s really disappointing that things had to end the way they did. It was all over pretty quickly to be honest: steam from the bonnet and there was no water left in the engine. Thats all folks!
