Loeb won at Monte Carlo with a Ford.


It's not the car, it's the drivers.

ArnageWRC should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The Monte is a specialist event, and can't be taken as a true reflection of a car's outright pace.

However, it might help if a true top line driver was in it; but on another forum it was reported they didn't do a pre Finland test.

WRC puts a lot of stuff on their Youtube channel, but it's all quite short and not very inviting. If they want grow their fan base, then these days I think that a strong presence on platforms like Youtube is the way to go.

Yes, it's all pretty poor. And having WRC, ERC & WorldRX behind a paywall is a massive mistake.

I understand that they charge 10-15 dollars per month for live streams of every WRC1 car. I don't understand two-minute daily highlights.

You can still watch the daily highlights on Red Bull TV. It's not all behind a pay wall.

25 min daily highlights are nice to watch, but aren't going to bring in more sponsors, manufacturers, etc
Fine in the 90s/early 00s but not in 2022. The WRC needs some free to view live action....

A rare mistake from the young maestro in Belgium and Tanak takes the win by a slim margin from Evans. Rovanpera's off was absolutely huge, how on earth the team repaired it in 4 hours is beyond me and Craig Breen's excursion in the Ford along with the Hyundai of Neuville in the closing stages must have been a real blow to their teams chances.
I'm lucky enough to be able to watch on BT Sport but as others have said putting the whole event behind a paywall is very damaging, the Red Bull TV offering hardly constitutes full coverage.

Yes, that could be a very costly mistake from Rovanpera. Great win from Tanak and good charge by Evans. Seems a very challenging rally, where mistakes are easily punished. Great coverage by ITV4 as always

Ypres is very challenging .
Have done it several times , and the ditches are not very forgiving .
Pace notes must be spot on , with cuts on the corners needing to list how deep, and how early or late .
And some places on the tarmac are so slippery that you can spin just from lifting off the throttle .

But a very good , although hard work , event .

I don't think it'll have much impact - his lead is still pretty healthy looking. It'll take a couple more dnf's from Rovanpera (and some consistency from his rivals) to make the title fight interesting.

True, but he needs to make sure he doesn't repeat the mistake or let it get to him.

So Hyundai finally get a good result: 1-2-3 a clean sweep of the podium. Again M-Sport seemed to have the pace in the car to get a decent result but manage to somehow come away without a car on the podium even when the Toyotas falter. Strange weekend really with the Toyotas not really being in contention - not often that's been said this year. Hyundai certainly made the most of the opportunity.
