    Dirtfish Spin the Rally pod on Sweden in which they suggest Neuville feigned the car problem on Friday to make Evans run first...

    I still have no idea if Neuville really had problem or it was tactical move but even if it was, I struggle to consider it "dirty". His rally was ruined by road cleaning, if you can share friday sweeping responsibilities with your main championship rival in exchange for penalty that doesn't cost you much, why not?

    If anything, it leveled playing field between them. ERC have much better system for road positions at beginning of rally that would most probably left gentleman driver Bertelli to deal with worst conditions.

    Remember back in Sweden 2018 where Ogier had to be the snowplough for the first THREE (very snowy) days. He took a penalty to run last on the PS and was crucified for it by most on here.

    The Rally Sweden thread was 50 pages longer than this one with all the criticism and there was even a separate thread on his action.

    At least he and M-Sport admitted they did it on purpose.

    Plus his action only benefitted himself and didnt adversely affect a direct rival (like Neuville did this year)...
