    You can also look at the Sweden 2018 stage where the plowing error was made https://www.ewrc-results.com/results...2018/?s=161821

    Ogier was first on the road, losing 22s
    Tänak was second, losing 18s
    Latvala was third, losing 7s
    all the rest of the drivers were within 4 s, except Meeke who had hit something hidden by the snow.

    Meanwhile, Tänak had won SS2 second on the road and Ogier lost only 12 seconds, being actually faster than Meeke and Evans.

    Then on the second run after the historic cars Ogier started loosing half a minute per stage.

    Drivers will always complain when the conditions are not in their favor.

    Before the first car you have the 0, the 00, the 000, the SC and i don't even know how many other cars.
    By the time the first rallying car arrives the worst is already gone. Sure, it will get better from there so it still isn't equal, but as long as we can't have all drivers starting at the same time that can't be avoided.

    very interesting talk about the driving style for this rally from Aava and our own rally legend Murakas.

    they both have been there and said the finns should have very big advantage, they said its basically like Ogier is from Gap and knows MOnte. The roads are very narrow and you cant set your car into "position" before the corners because the snow walls are so hard with this cold that if you do so and the rear hits the wall, then the car just goes straight.

    Also the "snowfog" is very bad, they said its worse than regular fog and with lights its just shines againt you and you cant see anything.

    Interesting fact is that Katsuta has most experience of current WRC drivers.

    Τhierry Neuville says his new co-driver Martijn Wydaeghe will remain alongside him for Arctic Rally Finland, after marking their first World Rally Championship start together with a podium on the Monte Carlo Rally.

    Also Mikkelsen will be there. Toksport changed their plans, because it was not originally on their program...

    He said so on the press conference yes.

    That will be quite a challenge imo, Huttunen (if he starts) and Solberg will have lots of advantages there.

    Mikkelsen has not driven snow rally in since 2019 and last time he drove snow rally in non-WRC car was 8!!! years ago. (S2000 Fabia on Arctic).

    Will surely need some real testing.

    Roads will be mix between wide and narrow, narrow ones like you said, like in the tunnel, need to be smooth and precise.
    Snow dust might be an issue if it will be very cold, but I think with limited amount of entries organizer is preparing for 3min gaps for top cars, so that should be solved generally.
