    If you have a look at supplementary regulations you can see that shakedown is on thursday and also first stage (SSS) on thursday. Rest of the itinerary is also there.

    That's disappointing, you only get to see 4 proper stages and only one new stage. Not sure how easy it is to get any good footage inside the track?

    Monza was unworthy of WRC already last year but as an ad hoc solution to an imminent crisis it was acceptable. However a year has passed and we have it here again in a format which is far bellow WRC level. Ending the season again with such a bad joke is doing more damage than good for the sport. By doing this the WRC refutes its own fundaments.

    Basically just one more extra normal stage. That is indeed disappointing.

    In worst case it might get really boring if it's full dry with all titles decided.

    I liked Ypres Sunday with parts of the circuit. But what made it work was that there were also nice roads as parts of these stages. Monza all 3 days 2-3 stages fully on circuit and gravel paths are too much when not necessary.

    Probably one of the greatest eras the WRC has ever seen has the potential to go out with a whimper and the FIA and the promoter have only themselves to blame. Guess they are banking on "surprise" announcements that Valentino Rossi will be competing etc to keep the interest up especially if Ogier ties things up this weekend however thats no excuse for allowing the event to run in this format. Other countries have proven you dont need to hide the rally away. Dissapointing is an understatement.

    Wait for Matton saying that it will be one of the greatest events and ways to send away these amazing cars..

    Even in Italy they must be able to find better stages than on Monza. Last year FIA was happy, due to Covid, and had interessting weather at Monza. We all said it was fun, but if another one, it HAD to be more stages, and fewer SSS inside the fence.
    Why do we end up with a repeat from last year, and why did FIA accept?
