    He's not saying he doesn't agree. He's being positively rude saying 'go watch rallycross'. Totally agree with doubled 1978 that the event could have been much better if Tanak was in the fight.
    So what if this has occurred once in a blue moon - the fact is it did happen and there have been some decent suggestions regarding how it could have been avoided.
    Yes, the road sections are part of the game, but it's also a team sport, so why not allow one crew to help another from the same team?
    Telling someone to go watch another sport because they are trying to suggest a scenario where a top driver could stay in the event is a bit shit to say the least.

    Thinking the same thing myself. Surely, he can only dine out on 'I'm just having a laugh with my ratings / articles / opinions / general rally knowledge' before someone starts asking questions.

    A forum member posted he thinks Clarke will be gone from Dirtfish before the year end... I wouldn't be surprised at all.

    Tänak would have been out of the fight anyway with the punctures, which didn't have anything to do with the liaison rules. Most likely he wouldn't have made it to top ten. And like I suggested earlier, him continuing would have resulted in a "tyre-saving theatre" for Sunday morning. These things happen and it's a part of the sport, we just have to accept it.

    It would have been better with him in it still.

    If you didn´t get it from the beginning; it´s not about Tanak. It´s about be attractive sport. Tanak was the driver who got it actualised.

    Why do you keep repeating that? I was replying to T16 who mentioned Tänak

    Besides, this is the Monte 2021 thread.

    to me a sport is not very attractive if it is devoted to fans service.
    there are a lot of show just to cheer at heroes, monza show, rally legend, eiffel, goodwood, and so on. that's where you do everything to have driver in it at any cost, whitout any rules. not so attracting to me.
    sport is another thing.

    This problem with broken tyres just before liaison has happened many times in lower categories, no-one has ever asked rule change so don´t say "caseTänak" has nothing to do with it.

    Also no-one was saying before Monte started that rules should change

    Most of WRC events have max number of entries 60, again no-one has been against it but when Monte takes 60 (or 50 this time) for Sunday it´s suddenly big problem

    So please complain about rules before not after something has happened.
