Which one? For what it's worth, Ogier is looking like he will be as domnant a driver as Loeb. That sort of dominance removes a lot of the interest for me too. They are very talented and fearless though!

Typical very tricky conditions for this event. How they even stay on the road at times amazes me. The C5 highlights didn't show or mention it, but I believe Latvala has a suspended penalty for hitting a spectator and not stopping. Unfortunately for those who want a shake up in the standings this year it is looking like business as usual at the top.

Lot of similarities to monte in a way. Meeke pushed Ogier a bit (definitely can show a good turn of speed when he does not have the pressure of mounting a championship challenge) but came to grief in the same way as at the last round. Ogier and Mikkelson had a bit of an off at exactly the same place but the time consequences for Ogier were much less. He may be a great driver but he definitely had luck on his side this time. Shaping up for more of the same I fear.

Bad luck again for Meeke, as you say though he had good pace.

Rally Mexico this weekend.

In related news Motors TV isn't on the Sky EPG anymore http://www.a516digital.com/2016/02/m...tribution.html

It can currently be added as an "Other Channel" though: Motors TV continues off the Sky EPG on satellite, currently with encryption stopping non-Sky users from access (11082 H, Symbol Rate 22000, FEC 5/6).

Latvala had a good result. Ogier is so far ahead in th epoints though and can afford to finish second and win the powerstage in each rally and it would be ages before Latvala catches him. Unfortunate for Sordo to get a penalty as Hyundai appear to now have decent consistent pace.
