    Incredible how the safety cell stayed intact.

    Really close rally. I was pulling for Seb, would have been amazing to win another Monte in another car new to him.

    Red bull TV coverage seems to be a lot smaller than last year. It’s now just talking heads and short highlights, as opposed to replays of the live coverage. They still had a live Super Stage on Saturday, but they didn’t have live coverage of the Power Stage on Sunday, which is really disappointing. Hopefully they go back to the old format for the remaining rallies (though I doubt they will).

    @twitcher yep, the red bull tv coverage is terrible this year. Have they lost highlights rights to someone?

    So, Sweden is a gravel rally this year...that’s different. There’s not even snow in the forest under the trees.

    Is it like the Dakar coverage was, where there's only 2 minutes of actual coverage in a 20-minute video?

    Never mind, there’s a little bit of snow and ice.
    I’m watching the Redbull show right now, there’s a decent amount of highlights. The Monte coverage was maybe a one off, it’s back to how it was last year.

    WRC should consider the North Pole or Antarctica if they worry about the future of Rally Sweden

    I think they should wait for several consecutive years of no snow before freaking out. Mild winters are not unheard of, they come and go.

    The current WRC calendar is only 7 rounds. Have the FIA confirmed if it will count as a proper World Championship or not?

    I guess this would be for the 2021 WRC thread.

    Thats admirable that he did warn his team-mate Ogier as Seb said he wouldnt have made the corner otherwise.

    Seb leads the rally at the moment and has to score 15 points to win the DC.

    Unlucky Elfyn, rallyings a cruel sport sometimes.

    And title number 7 it is for Ogier.

    I think Elfyn will be a man on a mission next year.

    Well done again Seb, but your heart goes out to Elfyn. He is absolutely legit and falling off on just about the most difficult surface imaginable is a brutal way to lose a title you very much deserved. Roll on next year...and the last year of these wonderful cars.
