    This is a thing for which everyone bar works team would be immediately excluded. That's simply a fact and we have seen that gazillion times.

    Even last week FIA in their decision about exclusion of Lindholm from Latvia wrote that it is irrelevant how much a measured value cross the tolerance limit. The tolerance is there to give no discussion about breaching it. They also clearly wrote in the very same decision from last week that any consideration of the competitive advantage coming from the breach of the tolerance must not be considered an excuse.

    At least it was just a fine, it would have been silly if they had taken the win away from Sordo.

    No, it would not have been silly. It would be perfectly by the rules applied to everyone else.

    Again, this decision completely contradicts last week decision about exclusion of Lindholm from the Rally Liepaja and about hundreds of other cases.

    It's irrelevant how much a value cross the tolerance. The tolerance is set exactly to avoid any discussion about the size of infringement and about any competitive advantage.

    There’s also the high possibility it would have taken Hyundai away from the championship too. Hurts to say it, but the last thing that the FIA want to do is piss off one of two manus that are part of the championship, very much especially at the moment.

    It would have been justified, yes. But it would have been a silly situation nonetheless - a very small mistake by the team and major consequences.
    I would say that since no real advantage was gained, a fine is reasonable punishment.
