    Oliver Solberg will not start next week’s Rally Italia Sardegna.

    Oliver’s father Petter Solberg tested positive for coronavirus on Monday (May 24). The FIA’s Appendix S COVID-19 protocol and national government regulations offer clear quarantine instructions for those in close contact.

    Oliver has tested negative repeatedly since Monday, but will remain in quarantine in a hotel in Porto for 14 days.

    Oliver had been scheduled to make his second Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC appearance of the season at next week’s Olbia-based World Rally Championship round.

    Oliver said: “You can imagine, I am more than disappointed by this news. I am a little bit devastated.

    “But you know, we have seen in the last year what coronavirus can do. My papa is doing well with a small fever and I’m thinking to him right now.

    “It’s really hard to take now, but the time for my next rally in that amazing Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC will come. We have these rules and regulations for a reason and that reason is to try to stop this thing spreading.

    “My family accepts completely what the FIA, the rally organisers, the national governments and medical professionals are telling us. The most important thing is that we keep people safe.”
    Sounds like Hyundai offered Solberg's vacant seat to Hayden Paddon at the last minute. Unfortunately due to quarantine requirements the window was just too small to work. Interesting that they still have him in their sights though.

    What do you mean by how is Fourmaux feeling about it? Every rallycar has a road mode to safe engine, clutch and transmission life and also fuel. The anti-lag is disangaged, the engine maps are much less sharp, throttle reactions are slow etc. It feels lazy and slow compared to the stage mode, for everyone.

    The Ostberg penalty was 100% the Italian stewards running defense for "their" team, Pirelli. They were already under fire for their crap tires in the F1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix, and now THIS happens. When the event is run by your compatriots, this can be exploited to silence your critics.

    lol "100%", sure it is.
    You know it's FIA stewards who decide these fines and not rally organizers, right? As if Italian organizers would care in the slightest if a driver swears in English or Norwegian, or if he insults a tyre manufacturer that happens to be Italian. Most Italians into motorsport don't even care about FIAT, go figure if they feel obliged to defend a tyre manufacturer by imposing fines.

    Thanks for your explaining, I almost understand,But maybe My English listening skill is not good,The MS engineer Jamie McMilian said there are two big differences ,
    First is the engine calibration include the second is tillglation?? pressure target and Anti lag
    Second is Engine Maps set.
    But I guess the Engine maps function belong to the engine calibration set right?

    Fourmaux said when change to stage mode ,the feel of the engine will get more banks? what does he mean for banks?

    The Azerbaijan F1 started some 5 hours after Østberg said it. (He said it on first pass of PS)

    Decision on penalty was annouced about half - way trough the F1 race (before the punctures happened)

    Can't understand why people can't get over it. It happened, it's over. Life goes on.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    Correct, stewards are typically not all local. The stewards in Sardegna were Timo Rautiainen (Finland), Mathieu Remmerie(Belgium) and Edoardo Delleani (Italy).
