The top end if free no penalty as long as you don't split the cases, so maybe if he did switch, refresh top end on off day see if it's strong enough then think about new engine if not up to song...my thinking anyway
That's reasonable, an extra 45' would be too much.

But the weak link seems to be the gearbox. That's what framed Coma last year and is framing the Boss this one.

Gearbox is the only thing i can guess they want to inspect and make sure its not going to fail. the failure of a piston is not an option as i think they were doing it most of the race anyhow on the factory teams.

good points on the weather. Re: Trannygate, have you got any official confirmation that he took the Orlen engine + the 15 minutes? Scouring the usual social media sources, I am not yet convinced. Maybe Nate + Flood can fill us in

Can't wait for the Special to start
No inside news surfacing so far. The summary is:

-We know Despres and Dobrowski at least started swapping engines.
-Some suspect this decision was reversed when SS8 was shortened.
-We don't know if Dowbrowski's engine was already changed (some, I among them, are sure that we saw penalties on Dobrowski's time yesterday which are gone today).

I'll re-post my question in case it was overrun. =)

Any one have any opinions regarding whether one should stick with France 4 tonight and skip ES 2 (interviews) since they overlap a bit? And no, I don't understand french... =)

this is what I remember catching and it got me thinking. Good summary. I have a feeling both official team announcements were made before the decision was made public to shorten the stage.

20 minutes to the start
