    Cool to see Kajetan on the podium too! Totally ERC vibes.
    WRC2 is basically RC2 with enhanced (read PAID) TV coverage

    Since he started from 40 mins later (Friday) to 15 ish (Sunday), than last WRC/first WRC2 car he basically never made it to Alllive coverage.

    Neither do WRC3 crews get onboard kits afaik (not even all WRC2 sometimes get them).

    So only vid you have is from stageside cameras if they (still) record. Similar issue with Monza last year with Mikkelsen and Solberg in WRC3 even when they were running as high as 3rd overall.

    Hyundai confirmed Huttunen & Solberg line-up for Ypres. So both should get a new car.

    It wasn't as soft as you think. You can see some photos from Lukyanuk's crash here:

    You can see some WRC3 highlights here (not much, but better than nothing):

    On the other hand I saw onboard of Huttunens crash and that looked quite innocent. Medium speed corner where he slowly went too wide and rolled relatively slowly in the ditch.

    Didn't look rally-ending, unless rollcage got damaged. Any explanation of why he didn't restart? (in WRC2 just going to finish would give him a few points which he needs with 0 from Arctic).

    Look at the panic of the marshal when she sees Lukyanuk

    I don't know if it was posted here or not, but I found an interesting footage from Sean Johnston's terrifying crash in Rally Estonia. He rolled his car I can't even count how many times (must be more than 10?), but both him and his co-driver are quite OK. Johnston explains what happend and what he was thinking during the crash. Also, have a look at what happened to his eyes at 1:00. This is quite scary:

    Huttunen said in Finnish interview that car was basicly okay unless radiator was broken, but "they" decide to retire rally. Sound pretty strange, maybe no spare parts?

    That was my worry, that they just retired to "save money". As I mentioned with the low amount of cars in WRC2 he would still get decent points just by finishing and he needs them after engine failure at Arctic.

    Basically sounds like Hyundai continues to threat him like thrash. After winning WRC3 in Monza as privateer Adamo was so positive how he and Solberg will progress together etc.

    Huttunen is so far the only one delivering anything in WRC2 for Hyundai this year, with the win in Sardinia (sure lots of retirements and issues but still he won). Other than that Hyundai campaign this year is a massive disaster (Solberg last scoring WRC2 driver, Veiby (=money) banned). Yet afaik Huttunen still runs in private KOWAX team with likely limited Hyundai support and basically no testing before rallies and very few starts.

    Solberg gets WRC starts and testing rallies yet didn't manage to drive further than 2-3 stages the last two rallies and also crashed early in his R5 testing rally. (Solberg seriously need some coaching imo. His parents sound more like a fanclub, which is understandable but they should seek out someone to "guide" Oliver. I don't think Adamo is the one for that).
