Same format as last year so only 10 long stages but nice to see a different approach. Also nice to see a Northern Irishman in a red Citroen in front so far.

Sal the 2nd

Unforunately Meeke out with engine issues, but not before the honeymoon period for Ogier was over and having struggled to keep pace with Meeke and then fallen behind Neuville, reverts to type and starts criticising a lack of power/pace in the Fiesta. And thats why despite his undoubted skill, i just cant warm to the guy. He must be a mare to manage and keep on message if things arent going his own way....

Having said that, thats not untypical behaviour for racers - see anyone in F1 as a reference...

Neuville wins, Ogier recovers to 2nd and extends championship lead after electrical problems had dropped him behind Sordo. 4 different winners in 4 different cars in 4 races. Championship organisers must be delighted.

Certainly looks like it's going to be a great year for fans, unlucky for Meeke but great to see that the tar pace is there, great result again for Breen too, sure the results show another 5th but it was a fine result and he is the only one of the less experienced works drivers who is looking like he truly belongs in his seat.
