I couldn't agree more, I thought there was a mistake when I saw the timeline in the player saying 17mins. They pretty much talked about the day's action without really showing any stage footage. The sort of clips they showed as the sort you'll find on most mainstream channels showing brief clips of the rally in their sports round-up. I wonder if they weren't allowed to or couldn't show any proper footage from Thursday and Friday. Very odd.

Am trying to watch it live but the Nigerian streams are so woeful it is not worth it endless buffering.

I'm wondering too what's happened. It was always a decent programme with highlights, analysis, etc
They need to show more free to air coverage, not reduce it. A mistake if it's their policy to try to get people to pay to watch All Live......rallying simply isn't a big enough sport. And we wonder why teams can't find sponsors.....

Sadly Alex, this is the way sport is going, it's all about money even for coverage. The event this weekend was spectacular, full of incident.

I think rallying is simply just a spectator sport, not a tv on.

The Red Bull highlights weren't great, but the timing is still available and there has been a ton of great footage pop up on You Tube over the weekend, so I have been watching that.

Will check out the ITV4 coverage tomorrow. Decent event to kick the year off with, incredible surge from Neuville yesterday and a very impressive start to the year for Evans.

Impressive stuff to start the season - Ogier, Evans and Neuville all squabbling over position (and I assume Tanak will be up there with them too). As expected the M-Sport guys were a bit off the pace (and they didn't get off to a great start did they?). Citroen who?

Have to admit the way I keep up now is youtube and ewrc, by far the quickest least intrusive and annoying ways to find out what is going on.

Tragic weather for the Swedish round but what can one do? I'm glad they still decided to run it, despite being markably chopped off. Hopefully this won't be an issue next year.

Great drive by Evans, he is a championship contender for sure now. Rovanperä with a maybe even more impressive drive for his young age, especially on the very tricky powerstage with mud, gravel and ice. I think Neuville got severely hampered going first on friday and didn't seem to really find the rythm afterwards.

Yeah, glad they managed to salvage something from it: was definitely a mixed bag of conditions!

I am still hesitant to call Evans a title contender this early: though it is impossible to deny that his performance wasn't superb this weekend. And Kalle was incredible on the power stage. As you say Neuville seemed slow to get going and, by the time he was up to speed, the rally was over!

Solid drive from Tanak, a good result for him after the Monte smash. I see a few comments stating that Ogier is struggling in the Yaris but, given his past performance(s), I wonder if he is just playing the long game and accruing points?

A real shame - Sweden is one of my favourite rounds and this year it was a shadow of itself. Glad that they managed to run something but it just wasn't a 'proper' Swedish rally without the snowbanks.

Great drive from Evans, he seemed pretty relaxed all weekend and certainly seemed to be in control.

The championship looks pretty open this year - Neuville, Tanak, Evans and Ogier all in with a good shout. I'd rule Rovanpera out purely on experience - he has the speed but you'd expect some mistakes over the course of the year that will cost him. The Fiesta looks to be off the pace so we can rule Suninen and Lappi out of the fight.

Sadly. The Fiesta is still my favourite looking car in the field but, other than an odd podium or two, I can't see M-Sport posing much of a threat to the Championship this year.

Agree about Rovenpera: I am expecting to see him bend a Yaris or two this year, though perhaps we are underestimating him.

Still do not understand the tyre rules on this event, it is clear a lot of those stages had minimum ice, some were pure gravel on the clips I have seen, surely running studs there is idiotic, and will cut up the road even more?

Usually studs are the right call for Sweden - but the warm weather this year obviously caused problems. The studded tyres were the only ones available to the teams so they just had to make the best of it. I suspect the tyres were part of the reason the route was changed so much. I do wonder if gravel tyres were a viable option - on the sections where it was ice and snow they'd not have been much use so probably not.

It's a winter event (well supposedly) so studded tyres are the selection. No chance of using gravel tyres, which is why the non snow/ice stages were cancelled.

They just about got away with it - and awarded full points for about 1 hour of competitive action.
