    Overall winner is just a title and fame, but does not give extra points. So it's all up to the priority - full-timers need points, part-timers probably wins and fame.

    Eem. What is the logic for this start-order? First Evans vs Munster with Rally1 and then Grayzin vs Rossel with Rally2...

    Rossel pace this weekend has been a really nice surprise

    Usually he is pretty lost on gravel

    Probably aim was go full reverse for tv time. But timming not enough for full piars, so "last" pair go with rally1

    Another (potential) factor for start-order can be, that SS17 was stopped due Meeke's crash.

    I think the fact Grayzin joined the team helped them develop the car more on gravel so he’s starting to feel more & more confident in it. For next year it would be nice if we’d have Rossel-Grayzin-Østberg
    Only you know your true potential.

    Two aspects:

    - "Fame" is only there if someone actually fights you. See Sweden where Fourmaux didn't really care he was 3rd overall in the end cause he got points for 2nd on Saturday.

    - Imo the "winner" of a rally is now the one who ends with most points. So yes, for me Evans won Sweden, not Lappi. Thats just how the rules are at the moment.

    Stage win for Fourmaux. Another nice confidence boost for him and M-Sport.

    In the provisional standings after today, Tanak now has jumped over Fourmeaux to the 3rd place in the championship. Ogier is still 5th but only 4 points down on Fourmeaux. If this trend is confirmed after tomorrow then at least Tanak and probably Ogier too will have less favorable starting positions for Sardegna which will raises the chances for Katsuta and Sordo.

    Today overall https://www.ewrc-results.com/leg/855...al-2024/?leg=2


    Such a shame about that slow puncture for Tänak. They would be veery close without that with Ogier in overall
