Focusing on power stage is wrong

Let’s say we’ve established the fact that the proposed “idea” of power stage shootout is bad, and let’s also say that people who came up with it also agree it’s bad. Then we can move on to actually try and discuss what CAN be done, instead of what should not be done under any circumstances,...

Red Bull, Sportsman Media Group and FIA, is this the best you can do?

What the actual, high flying, dirt kicking fuck is happening to the future of the World Rally Championship? Pardon my French, but seriously, that’s the only thing I could come up with in first response to the brand new ideas, being worked on in the offices of sport’s not-so-new-anymore promoters. You know how we often...

There wasn’t much else to do for Ogier – at best he could have taken few...

Sordo rolls, Ogier all sorts of MAD

First stage went though quite peacefully, drivers and co-drivers getting into the groove, studying the conditions and trying out the footwear on their cars against the elements. But then, on Special stage 3, the monstrous 51 kilometer realization of a dream by Jean Todt test, it all went a little bit more dramatic. Apparently, Dani...

Ogier vs. Loeb, (yet) another view (sigh!)

I tried to steer away from the battle of Sebastiens, I really did, but to no avail. It’s futile to even attempt to resist it or deny it. Because this battle is actually one of the biggest stories in recent years, and also, sadly, the story that will never really be told properly. Just because...
