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

    It doesnt take much in rallying as driver's generally have little experience of 'mind-games'. Just planting a little seed of doubt can be enough.

    Absolutely no idea how Eddie thinks it was mind games when Ogier would have gone off, if it wasn't for Evans slowing him down?
    If it wasn't for Evans, there would have been two Toyotas in the ditch - some mind games.

    Literally making shit up as you go along. Have you a single ounce of evidence to back any of this up?

    It was by no means inevitable to go off there...for anyone.

    Tanak drove just before Evans and slowed down immediately at the start of new tarmac and took a safe line though the corner (inside, partly without snow).

    Evans had change of tarmac and "shiny" in notes , yet didn't slow down much and went left to brake on snow. So at least two judgement errors there.

    Ogier was warned already 2 corners before at start of the new tarmac. So what would have happened to him is pure speculation. Yes he did understeer a bit on the snow in the corner, but was never even past the mid-line, so the allive panic that he is "nearly" going off was pretty unnecessary.

    Ok - of course I canít say for sure, but he did reduce his pace a bit, after sliding already. Iím pretty sure he would have done.
    Didnít he even say so himself? Or was that a polite response to being pushed on the matter?
    Evans was leading the championship after being team mate to Ogier for 2 years. Iím pretty sure he knows how to deal with anything Ogier chucks at him.

    Evans made a mistake under pressure. His decision to push where it was not necessary, his fault. Were Ogier's comments tiny part of that pressure, we can endlessly speculate and never will find out.
