    There was no real advantage for the first crews as earlier stages were wetter for them, due to previous night rain. Anyway, with so many cars 'polluting' the stages, first crews advantage would only exist on the first loop, never on the entire leg.

    You're rigth: Lindholm was flying in the SD, but sadly he only run SS1 without problems (touch on 2, crash on 3).

    I dont agree with you. And crews dont agree also. With variable and changeable weather, starting order was crucial. Especially this year when weather was really changing. Also there was more gravel on stages on some places.

    Sorry, but during last weekend showers fell randomly, affecting all crews here and there. Besides, after 40 ERC cars and 15 Historics (plus 50 Regionals on the second loop), gravel was around for everyone.

    Btw, looked closely into SS’s times and was nicely surprised to see that Ares and Bonato were leveled with Breen and Solberg almost from the start; only Luky was slightly ahead, which cannot be strange for those who saw him (and his perfectly tuned C3) on the stages.

    So, another mistake for Hyundai. Ivan Ares' car had wrong door energy absorbing device - foams. Ares and Vazquez are given reprimand. Stewards decided that Hyundai is responsible. 60k Euro penalty, half of which is suspended until end of ERC 2021 season.
