    But only because Ostberg did one event less... Problem of WRC2 is also quality and mainly quantity of competitors. You can miss most of the stages, but if you will finish last day, you are still on podium...

    However the subject was fast, faster, fastest...

    Still you have to manage speed to lead a championship, no matter what yuo can tell about drivers speed. There is ifs and buts...

    Didn’t followed Turkey but apparently it was another ‘lottery on rocks/punctures paradise/demolition derby’, as in previous years. Anyway, congrats to Evans and Martin; a new WRC Brit champ could hopefully boost the sport in the UK.

    Also you might win events where your rivals don't even start.

    There would be a furore and calls of unsporting behaviour.
    Fastest lap in F1 only give a point if the driver finishes 10th or better. So in F1 they have taken specific care that the described situation cannot happen - they know, somebody would try it sooner or later.

    Would you prefer one man winning 4 rallies before the season ends or 4 crews chasing the title(s) until the last meter of the last event? We only have 3 manuf. left, one falling behind already.
