Another view of Tanak

Is it okay to assume that Greensmith has a long future in the sport as long as his Dad? can keep writing cheques?

These chaps are operating at a level way above my pay grade and in treacherous conditions but.... that doesn’t reflect well on Gus.

Who are us mortals to criticise, non of us would have made it as far as this corner!!!

Even world champion Tanak went off, in fact most of them had a bit of a moment.

Loads of power, 4WD, class drivers, if its on sheet ice you are still in the lap of the gods.

Nobody expected Elfyn to be trading times that high up the leader board.

Come on Elfyn, leading at the end of the 3rd day with 4 stages to go.

They are mortals too...

The surprise of the event for me is how well the cars are holding up, I think all the top drivers have had some bit of off road drama? Has there been a puncture, let alone a broken wheel or suspension among the WRCs?

Good rally in terms of how tight it is between Toyota and Hyundai. Bodes well for a competitive season. Pleased for Evans in terms of challenging the establishment,

agreed paul, it was tight for most of the event, with some hairy drives by top three, and also glad to see neuville get off to ggod start....tanak seemed a bit miffed in post hospital interview i saw, guess thats understandable after a big off,,,at least he walked away....not convinced by suninen (yet) or greensmith (yet) but maybe im still blinkered by pro-meeke glasses which i need to get over lol!!

showing my ignorance here, but can someone confirm for me when a team with more than two drivers has to nominate the two who will provide points towarsd manufacturers title, ie is it done before the start of the event, or at the end so they can gain most team points? Neutral

Loeb was lackluster in Montecarlo! It is an event which has won a few times! Breen is hungry still so be good to see him in the top 3 in Sweden. Also looking at Greensmith's really daft off, you have to wonder at M-Sports choices this year!

11 stages listed for the whole event wonder if any more will get canned as heavy rain predicted for Sunday?

So far Evans leading Kalle by 7.9 seconds after SS4.

Looks more like Wales then Sweden. Just hope there aren't any nasty accidents as a result of studs being lost..

Oh its going to tense! Only one stage today now the Powerstage at around 2.00pm GMT but with the weather the way it is road position will be crucial.
