Pretty incredible finish to the rally. Great to see the C3 delivering on gravel and both Meeke and Neuville with a decent result. Would be good to see the top of the table close up more, but I'm perhaps being a little demanding there: this season continues to deliver on the early promise, fingers crossed it stays this way!

Haha lol, Meeke!

Such an odd rally with so many having problems. I hope Paddon can get some luck as well and fight for the podiums.

I'd make Power Stages count 3x towards total time.

Caught the highlights on C5 last night, the series is really on the up. Ogier's finding it not as easy this season and well done Meeke, despite nearly throwing it away, I really am happy when he does well. Looks like different events suit different cars

Do we think the clip of Paul Nagle bracing for impact saying "Jesus Kris" is going to be ingrained in rally folklore similar to Colin turning to Grist and saying "Did you like that, wee man" after the famous stage in Australia from back in the day?

That was a close run thing, very lucky not to have clipped the pair of parked cars when he first left the road.

Now that would be something, thrown out for having a performance disadvantage!

In other news, John Kennard is retiring after Finland.

Apparently the Mexican event might not have gone ahead due to Trump's limiting of trade between US and Mexico, showing how he is really shaping the world

I see the gearbox has been given the all clear, so no penalty for Ogier. As much as I would hate to see any driver punished for something that was out of their hands, I must admit a part of me was hoping that they would penalize him so he would have to drive even harder to regain those points!

It will be the car/ driver,co-driver/ engineer combination that works best. I would suspect Neuville, Sordo with Hyundai, Meeke with Citroen, Tanak - Ford.

Citroen was woeful on tar in Monte, I would say Ogier, Neuville, Sordo. The rest fight over scraps
