2021 FIA World Rally Championship


Recommended Posts

I can never work out the wrc time zone thing. It says the live powerstage is 15:00 utc, which according to google is also 15:00 GMT. But from what I can make out the penultimate stage starts 14:56 GMT, so I'm a bit confused? I guess the powestage is an hour later than what google thinks!

Oh nooooo!! 0.7 seconds.

That was a hell of a fight! Too bad we don't have a 5th winner this year but I'm kinda glad for Thierry and for the championship standings. 

The season is getting better each rally!


Evans had a lot of luck on that bridge but it probably also costed him that precious second...

Nooooo, Evans!

What a rally. Couldn't have asked for better, really. El Condor was surreal! I climbed up into the valley twice and my legs are killing me now.  Paddon, Latvala, Ostberg and Tanak all put on a hell of a sideways show on the Power Stage! Truly a rally to remember. 

For those who wanted pictures, I'll upload a Google photos album link later. I have too many to pick winners from!

We're (at least I am) waiting too see them in near future :) I know how long getting through them can take... :P

You're lucky to be there! Beautiful country and great stages, although a little tough for anything other than a world rally car!

This season keeps delivering. Fantastic rally, really commendable work by Evans and Dmack, glad to see Evans making good use of his WRC seat. And like Sweden, great to see Ostberg enjoying himself again.

Looks like Meeke is still using those Dirt Rally aero physics. That C3 sure holds on to its diffuser though, I wonder if Ostberg is taking notes. And I wonder how hard is Citroën going to push to sign Mikkelsen now..?

Happy Hyundai got the points, but gutted for Evans. I'm sure his time will come though.
What a rally. Argentina cements its place as the highlight of the calendar for me. 
Feel for Meeke - that's gotta hurt bad after all the team's hard work to get him back out there.

Very tough indeed. We parked on the side of the highway on our way to El Condor and we nearly got stuck in a sandy ditch on our way out, and the lack of cellular data at the stages had me gobbling up all the day's information back at the hotel. It left me guessing why Bertelli didn't show up at the power stage.

Bloody hell, that was close! Seems the Fords have been having the most mechanical problems, I wonder if Evans would have won it if he hadn't had brake and temperature issues. Regardless, I think he would have had it if he hadn't clipped the bridge.

Glad to see that so many different drivers are running at the top of the boards in each event this year. It's so much more fun to watch with that extra unpredictability.

 Normally when that happens you shouldn't have to guess! This was a rare occasion when it wasn't his own fault!

Watched the side by side onboards from the power stage. Neuville was a little hesitant in the middle and that's where he lost about 3 seconds, but he was taking time out of Evans and was under 2 seconds behind at the bridge impact. After that they were pretty much the same speed.

I didn't know that a former SRTUSA team member was now part of Toyota Gazoo WRC team.

Great guy, talked to him many times.  I surprised him when i asked him to sign a poster next to David Higgins/Craig Drew ..  he was the team Principal after all and reminded him that i thought highly of his contrabutions after watching him at a service stop.


oh yeah at 1:27 one of US/Canada's favorite and most successful codrivers (Natalie Richard) briefly gets on camera,  as always grinning big.
