    It's not disappointing. Kubica said it clearly he can't be in Italy at that time.
    How can you be disappointed with nearly 100 crews and over 50 R5 cars in such difficult times?

    - no extra WRC appart from Veiby
    - missing Loubet and Breen in R5s

    Some guys just have to have different opinions that's all. Great entry list and I hope it to be a great event. Although not to prone to crashes and mechanical problems, having a close battle for the title will be great

    Well entry list is very good
    but
    All those "stars" who were driving Monza 2018/2019 with WRC are "chickening"

    so for me WRC is just normal (11 cars)

    WRC2 only 4
    WRC3 only 13
    JWRC only 6 (Rally Sweden had 16)

    so its not that great

    R-GT entries are big +
    Privateers with Rally2/R5 also +

    Nope, this isn't about having different opinions but rather to state the obvious. Monza has always provide great entry lists as a rally show and no one can denny that Rossi or Kubica would bring more viewers from other motorsport series.

    As you said as a "rally show". Now with the proper stages on Saturday and the quite different stages also on the monza racetrack area it has not much to do with the old "show" event. Only the "Grand Prix" stage can be compared to previous years. It's a proper rally now.

    For what? Mainstream media attention? Rossi has not the star power he once had (some of my friends didn't even know that he was still in MotoGP) and Kubica, although I think it would be fast, it would cost money to the team. Don't forget that his car must be adapted and take in mind that he didn't bring more audiences or anything to DTM this year. If you want mainstream media attention, you either bring a footballer (and a big name) or a movie star (Patrick Dempsey or Fassbender comes to my mind as they like racing).
    I would rather see this as an opportunity for WRC Teams to test new guns like Solberg Jr. or Huttunen in a WRC car.

    Sorry mate, even with all the changes there's no way it can be seen as a proper WRC rally (69% of the stages, coresponding to 52% of the kms, are run on/around a racing circuit).

    Don't take me wrong, ACI efforts to provide an alternative season finale on such a difficult time must be praised, but we can't forget that Monza is in the series mainly because the FIA and the promoter ruined the chances of running seven proper WRC rallys in due time.

    But changed enough to not have "guest" playing around, cause outside track will be difficult and risky. Definitely not a show anymore. (for sure even not a proper rally, but closer)
