Rubio should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
FIA WTCR 2018 - Race of Hungary - Hungaroring

Accidentally discovered that Race 1 is scheduled to run at the same time as F1 qualifying. Race 2 as at hte same time as F1 race.

How do they want to attract people to watch their first race on social media? Very poor scheduling of the first 2 rounds including Marrakech.

At Eurosport they do not care about F1. They care about cycling and pool and that kind of stuff.

That may be true, but they must realise that F1 is still the biggest motorsport draw in many countries and takes away viewers. Anyway, if there are race replays on the internet, it's not such a big deal.

A calendar without clashes is an utopia. There are so many factors to deal with, you can't please them all.

At least it's not like the time the British WTCC round clashed with the BTCC meeting at Oulton

Ok, so unfortunately it wasn't that Marrakech better suited the Hyundais, the gap is quite big to the rest (Honda the only exception).

I'm afraid they'll have to BoP it slightly

Huge disappointment for Audi, only Vernay saves the car performance but he is 11°

As I said in the past, it seems that the BOP is very light for the start of this season. It should be modified to allow more car to be competitive. Hyundai and Honda are surely the best car, BOP apart

Should be a good race though

They'll be lots of crying by VAG group drivers this evening.

To be fair, Audis were struglling here last year in TCR, so not particularly surprised to see this.

BoP was done well except Hyundai, IMO.

Now, why would Yann Erlacher get a radio message asking him not to go too fast to avoid getting the fastest lap? BoP games.
