    Are you serious or ok? Finland was cancelled because of COVID! It´s much more than rallying´s safety reasons.

    Plus relatively few spectators, but half of them are stood somewhere daft.

    Regardless of all these issues, how this rally survived the 'no more island WRC rallies' diktat a few years ago is a bit of a mystery. The money must be very, very good. At least, I hope so...

    I LOVE sardinia as a place to go (and i could understand to live). I understand it is a popular destination to spectate, close enough to everywhere, nice weather this time of the year, etcv ...But the rally itself i never really apreciated. Not a lot of character, nothing unique, too slow/narrow/twisty.... i also recalled Corsica was axed because "island rallyes are too expensive". With this year's shitshow and the pressure mounting for more non-european events, I really don't see how on earth can this one continues ... But i guess money, politics and whatever else talks ...

    Like someone once said, cash is king, and it's no exception here. I really hope they get the boot for next year but this being the FIA & the Promoter I seriously doubt anything will happen to the event, perhaps a slap on the wrist, I hope they prove me (us) wrong, but I wouldn't hold my breath for it.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    The marshal with the red flag is clearly another communication error, I can only assume the second red flag was to enable that message to go through as the stage then restarted. Comms need to be investigated. Must admit it's not my favourite event on the calendar but it's rarely dull.

    Honestly they're the last place I'd go to to check for the results, they're rarely updated, on time.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    None set a time on the last stage due to red flags. Give the stewards a few hours to think about it and they will add times.
