Anyone have any idea when the Special starts?

Morning liaison of 176km started 4:40, so I am guesstimating they have 2-2.30 hours to complete that?

Any minute now???

We've seen it in past years. ASO typical, and they have to keep the conspirationists busy

Helder's penalty comes from stage 7, I believe. Looks like he changed engine before anyone else.
