    This was why I was so frustrated on the powerstage – I wanted to fight with Sébastien. I know it’s totally stupid and nonsense, but I had this real hope to try to beat him in the last stage.

    I believe he is really potential and if possible I think Ford should really see this trough. Has potential to do a "Evans" and "Tänak" kinda resurrection. The guy has serious speed in there.
    I agree with this but with a pinch of salt. Yes he shows here and there really big flashes of speed and the next thing he is dropping tens of seconds every stage. Go figure but instability, lack of testing, a lesser car has something to do as well

    AFAIK nothing of that is allowed.

    We saw the high speed spin of this crew on SS10. It was a jump on a narrow road and they jumped too sideways, hit the snow bank while landing and spun. The car stopped some 60-70 meters later facing the wrong direction. It was too narrow to turn. It was just me and my friend and one other tabard photographer at the scene. I ran towards the start to warn/stop the next cars and the other tabard guy were warning after the jump. As the mirrors of Fabia were full of snow, the driver started to reverse and my friend was guiding him with hand signals. About 200-250 meters further there was one of the escape pockets where they could turn the car around. About 5-6 cars went through on warning. Lauri Joona got some time compensation as they were the next car to arrive and had to stop.

    If the crew need some pictures from the moment they got to continue, I can help with that.

    Organizer wants Arctic return – but not at all costs

    Clerk of the course Kai Tarkiainen wants to bring the WRC back to the Arctic, but not in place of summer's Rally Finland

    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.
