    My thoughts:
    - Start is again at Gap (and thus also shakedown on Thursday morning)
    - 85% new to last year
    - Thursday night stages North of Gap instead of going to Gap from Monaco
    - Four stages are driven just once (two on Thursday, two on Saturday)
    - The longest stage is only 22 kilometres long
    - Col de Turini is driven from South-West to East.

    Also I'm quite surprised they have decided to include again the stage where Tänak crashed last year. Remember, it was a new stage for this year and that was a super hyper fast section, it seemed outrageous just from looking at recce videos.

    In addition, the "Les Tourniquets" hairpin climb from Bayons-Breziers is gone, as is the bankment/tunnel section of La Bollene-Vesubie.

    A shame they no longer run the 'full fat'/classic version of La Bollene Vesubie - Moulinet - Sospel.....

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    In my opinion an itinerary where all stages are +/- 20 km long is a good one (not discussing the particular route now). Maybe not bringing some super excitement in terms of some monstrous stage where everything is decided but IMHO that is good. The rally shall not be about one stage where half of the field crashes out or catches a puncture and the other half doesn't drive it at all after it is canceled. In this case all stages may have similar impact on the results.

    For me it is ok to have stages around 20 km, but at least one should be little bit longer - at least 25 km, better around 30

    Monte did almost the same thing last year - only one once driven stage was 25 km long.

    My preference would be to have about half of the stages from 15 to 25 km, one fourth stages from 5 to 15 km and one fourth stages over 25 km. Variety is good.
