    Does anyone else see the irony here? Let's look at the history. Going back to when the rules were changed to limit manufs point-scoring crews to two (nominated before the season/rally), which reduced the number of works or works-assisted WRCars. A couple of manufs quit and then Organisers start to worry about no. of top cars competing on 2nd/3rd legs. SupeRally (re-starting) then introduced, but not with leg points like used in APRC, etc. Instead, penalty times added for missed stages (grrr!) as incentive for manufs to re-start their crews. Still not exciting enough on 2nd/3rd days so Power Stage is introduced to 'sex-up' at least one stage on the last day. After all these rule changes, we now have a situation where the number of WRCars 'competing' on the last day is basically the same as it would have been without them. Please discuss.

    Even without these rule changes, WRCars competing on the last day would still be less than it is on first day. When one retires, one cannot remain in competition for the win.

    So you mean that Neuville driving flat out on two of the days six stages is better than him not starting at all? Remember also that this is very rare, we just remember it better when it happens. Just like WRC+ not working.

    What a boring section to end the rally and show on television.

    Problems for Lappi?
