All live should have camera every 200m, spectators on site will see the cars all the time, service area can be between all stages, so cars will be more reliable. So for show this is the best format.

    Let's go further, since we have just the one stage how about we make it just 3km but 2 times wider and we let 4 cars race at the same time so they can pass each other! Now that would be exciting!

    Never let it happen once again that 2nd placed o/a driver gets more points than the winner. The driver who stod on highest place in podium celebrating, but got less points.

    New point scoring system no matter what it could be at the best, shouldn´t end up rallies like Rally Sweden.
    Why wasn´t Evans on step one on Podium, then?

    RIDICULOUS IT WAS!!

    Well, if he wanted more points, he should've pushed on Sunday. Yet, he didn't. He just wanted the win and that's what he got.

    It's true that Lappi should do more if his main objective would be maximizing points gain instead of win but it doesn't change ridiculousness of situation when it's possible to be rally winner and not be points winner.

    Currently rally from WRC standings point of view, is not a rally but series of mini-rallies where winning whole thing doesn't matter. It shouldn't be like that.

    He completed the entire rally in the overall shortest time. That should always be worthy of the most points

    Why? Because it's "fair"? Is it also "fair" that he got road advantage?
