    Letting him go max on one stage is smart, he had little to loose, having crossed all boxes before the Power Stage.

    That he went over the limit several times, and in the end one time too much, is part of the learning curve.
    He was lucky, and only lost a place to Taka, saw the finish line, and had a absolute ball the whole weekend!

    And Oliver is as Petter was, a PR master!

    Next rally will be in a R5 and then hopefully in a Rally2. Maybe he will get 1 or 2 more rallies in the top class this year, lets see!

    I post that comment when he had a big moment on the heli view. It was shortly before he went off. That was just a coincidence.

    Dunno how easy it is to get a different character in the area and for sure they didn't do super specials with COVID this year.
    The event was put together in a very short time. There are more roads in the area, but no time to include those in such short notice. But like many here said, unlikely that Finland will have regulary two events

    * in PowerStage he didn't have enough confidence and will to take extra risks to find extra 2 seconds for fighting for powerstage win

    Finland have the capacity to organize two rallies per season, if they are allowed. No doubt.

    They have many upsides. Same people doing events. Clear structure on everything needed, weather it is in Rovaniemi or Jyväskylä. Efficient work with people knowing how rallies should be organized.

    And I have inside info they have no problems doing it twice a year.

    Marketing-wise it's a nogo.

    What those two have in common is that he went off both times...maybe better to drive to finish.

    It's WORLD championship. They can't have two rallies in a country with such a small car market moreover when one is in so remote place. Now there's covid but normally they need to get thousands of fans there somehow.
