Seb jumps back behind the wheel of the lil' Citröen after 12 months off... straight back to the top of the shakedown timecharts...

Why does everyone else feel like they have been racing for 2nd place the best part of a decade...?

Stage was 3.5km - 2min.
Kind of like a WTC lap up the hill.

Let's wait and see if he still has the stamina.

I bet it will crush the other Seb if he discovers he's still number two.

It's true... was only a 3.5 km warm up/shake down...

but he was 1.1 seconds quicker than the "eternal #2" (other seb)

so Orgy better hope that Seb #1 doesn't have the stamina and routine after his lay off... becuase that pace difference over a full 20 km stage would work out to be about a 6.5 second whooping...

split times

So is there some reason why they decide that the drivers are not getting split times anymore during the stage. I can only guess it is to make the drivers drive 100% and have to worry that you will be beaten if you don't.
Also Loeb retired at the end of the 2012 season but raced a select few WRC rallys in 2013 and 2014.

There's also some brinksmanship regarding stage finish times and start order IIRC, by keeping the split times out of cockpit is an attempt to halt that, as well as the reason you stated, to make the drivers go hard, and deliver for the fans.

ya I forgot about team orders and road sweeping for the next day.
Little harder to pull team tatics if you don't know how much time to drop.

Sweden was one of the most exciting WRC events in my memory. I was really pulling for Hyundai to win their first event, that would be cool. Or at least VW's #3 driver. Oh well, until next time front runners have major issues.

I just bought a ticket to Guadalajara, flying in on March 6th to check out new smaller cars in person
