Watched the highlights last night. They did well to make the most of what was a truncated event. Great drive by Evans, heís already looking good for the rest of the season. Maybe heís not as quick as Meeke was, but certainly has the consistency

Great drive by Rovanpera too, despite the occasional moment of inexperience, he still did well to get that result

I'm not sure of Evans' pace relative to Meeke - it's a tough one to determine as they've not been in the same car but I wouldn't have said Evans was much slower (if at all). Evans definitely looks less error prone though - Meeke was always on the absolute ragged edge and never far from a colossal shunt (much like his mentor - although Meeke never reached the same heights).

Iíd say Meeke had more natural pace, whereas Evans is fast and controlled

I'd pick Evans any day over Meeke. Heck, Evans has already scored double the podiums over Meeke in the Yaris. He even finished before Meeke in the standings last year despite missing three events while also being in an arguably lesser car.

The problem with Meeke always was he was over the limit to be on the pace, and a crash was ALWAYS likely just like Latvala. Evans is the new breed and clearly is showing some pace that was hidden the past few years.

I suspect he has adapted to the Yaris better initially, certainly better than Ogier and Kalle is also showing good adaptation too, but I expected him to go well here, he is a Finn after all.

Also Tanak does not seem at east yet with the Hyundai, so Evans is taking advantage of all of those things. Neuville I still suspect is the biggest threat, these last two events are obscure in many ways, so too early yet to draw straws.

They are trying to make money still when their series is canned, you cant blame them, they dont have a pot like F1 or MotoGP, so they want you to pay.

I never will, just find it later on a torrent or something

As we are in a lockdown, with no proper motorsport, most of the major series have organised e-Sports events. Unsurprisingly, the WRC is again behind the curve, and haven't done anything. The IMSA & Indycar events were quite good, as was the VLN at the weekend - all with most of the proper drivers, commentators.

I'm not sure a vote for greatest WRC driver is quite the same thing......

It's ok - the VHS Rallies account on YouTube is posting lots of great content - definitely worth a look!

Hirvonen, one of the best never to get the title and one who probably retired earlier than perhaps he should have

I think he knew he was going through the motions, fair play to him, much like Latvala, good but not good enough, unlike the last really flying Finn, Marcus who might be the last Finnish champ for a while.

They have NEVER been good enough on asphalt, always the let down

Hirvonen lost the championship by 1 point in 2009 and by 8 points in 2011. Latvala was never as close.

Hirvonen was a lot more consistent, just maybe wasnít as fast on raw pace as Latvala
