    Yes about same "hype". It also got Kalle at one point IMO, when all he had to do was to collect the "obvious" WRC2 title and started off by crashing in first 3? rallies. He got back after, but things like that are not guaranteed.

    Probably because lead drivers will stop taking second spare all the time, and that will make new mess to deal with.

    If the same crew have punctured the spare wheel before, they are out of the rally.
    They are not allowed to limp back to the depot, since then in much smaller speeds, it is seen as unsafe.

    This is not logical for the best drivers in the world.
    How can this be fixed, so we dont loose drivers in a rally on a technicallity?
    "Best drivers in the world" are not magicians. If a driver drives on one rim and there is some emergency...say schoolbus coming out of control and crossing to opposite side of the road will they be able to react as fast as a normal car with 4 tires? I doubt that.

    What I don't doubt is how it would look for the broad public if a rally car on 3 tires is in any way involved in something like that.

    The main issue is that driving on three wheels is simply illegal per traffic rules. The rally is not more than the law.

    Hello all of you.....and with the permission of their lords

    I want to present my dedication to this Great Monte Carlo Rally,,translated ,, I speak Spanish,,there I go

    ccording to what we are experiencing ,, I think it is from law leave it positioned.
    I want to highlight the Wonderful Views of this Rally, from the Onboard and Helicopter .. Without words ..y Doubt ,, even though I'm from Flor de Zidane ...
    Lo De Evans, well, I have to believe that he is a Real Level 100 Pilot.
    The Rovanpera thing has left me once and for all looking at Pamplona ..
    And what about Katmasuta, well, I'm not going to say the same, but there is the Nipon peaso ...
    MI Tanak ,, is missing the Flower of Zidane ,, Neuville ,, It is neither Cocoon ,, Dani ,, is a followers with Alma and Loubet ,,,, this for Wrc2 still despite France ,, the replacement would be Breen ,, more scoring ..
    M Sport ,, Suninem It is not 1st of the team and perhaps not 2nd ,, the Greensmith ,, It has no Valuation ,, perhaps Formaux if it is above Both ,,, M Sport must think that Money is not enough to have Prestige At the level of Escuderia ,, Not Vale Todo ..
    Tok-Sport ,, I think Mikelssen is a 1st Class WRC Driver ,, his partner is at most very well there with the Pastora ... On.
    My dear Oliver has been Luxury ,, Camilli ,, also ,, Ciamin and Rossel ,, and the American Also to quote him ,, Because no..Ohh ,,, the Russian ,, I forgot ,, good rally has Pegao yes Sir....
    In short, this first Grand Rally I think I will not forget for everything present and for everything about El Planna, for the current moments that we have to live, Luck of Zidane to All ...

    very weel said.
    It can open a whole new subject with fake flat tyres/punctures,that can choose before stage the right tyre/new tyre from another car. So he can take brand new 4 tyres just before stage at gravel rallies,or the 4 right tyres at Monte lets say.

    No, as I said, the ‘new’ rule would allow swapping of tyres for road section to service only (NOT FOR STAGES) therefore no competitive advantage gained.

    It is competitive advantage because single-car teams could not do that. Those are the majority of competitors.

    Driving with rally car on the public road is also illegal, allowed only when the rally is on or with special permission. Why the hell you cant drive on 4 wheels? Aswell, driving on 3 tyres on F1 200km/h is okay, no-one cant get hurt for sure. FIA must be taken over, amateurs or bribed.

    I'm asking again, can you name the cases when a double puncture occurred at the last stage of a leg, resulting in a retirement? I don't remember any. Seems like a very corner case.
