He posted on twitter, he seemed gutted obviously, but he still sounded positive of his performance from the last two events. Whilst it's not a great start to the season to go out on the first two events, it's not complete disaster, especially if he goes out and takes some power stage points tomorrow. He and the car are clearly very capable of winning rallies. and monte was the smallest of mistakes, one which could have happened anywhere else and not caused him any problems. Tomorrow will be interesting, I unfortunately won't be able to follow it love though :(

And @gfRally in answer to your earlier question, for following live, twitter and wrc radio are probably the best aside from any live broadcasts. Just follow as many people as you can who are tweeting about the WRC. It's the best way info spreads around

Will be quite an exciting day tomorrow now though. When was the last time we had three cars with a clear chance to win going into the last day? :-)

My heart says Latvala, but my brain thinks Ogier will take the win on the power stage with Latvala 3rd and Tänak 2nd.

Edit: But Latvala looks so relaxed and happy. And happy Latvala is fast Latvala...

Geez... Again? Neuville's cursed or What? :(

Tomorrow it will be a hell of a battle for 1st place, with 16 seconds separating the first 3.

Both Latvala and Tanak deserves to win, but most likely it will be Ogier again. We will see how tomorrow turns out...

Onboards are up on WRC+. Quite clearly a driver error from Neuville, he went in too tight into the lefthander and hit that stack of tyres quite hard.

Just saw another interview with Latvala. He looks... sly and happy. Whatever he says, he's going for that victory tomorrow. I just hope he won't overdrive and crasch out.

No, it seems a rock broke the direction of the Hyundai. Not Thierry's fault, the marshalls didn't clean the road after Hanninen threw the rock into the road.
Nah, there was no rock there. Check this just before the impact:


Just two stacks of tyres, no surprise rock. Then he goes straight into the second stack with the front:



The only concrete/rock that's there is firmly underneath that huge stack of tyres.

As stupid as this may sound, unless Latvala as an off today, I don't believe that Mr. Ogier it's going flat to try and win. Maybe a PowerStage show down, but not more than that. Being so vocal about opening the roads, the best tactic for him will be secure the 3rd place finish in here and let Jari-Matti open the roads in Mexico!

Latvala is crushing Tanak and Ogier, seems like that Toyota isn't such a bad car after all compared to the others
In my opinion they have the second car (after the Hyundai). Technical minor issues, very normal for a new team. If they continue improving and Neuville making mistakes... The Fiesta looks like a all-round car, as usual with M-Sport, but not spectacular. I don't know if they are going to progress as much as Citroen, Hyundai...

Hope Citroën can step it up. Craig Breen's post rally interview says it all, the car just isn't as good as it should be. Hope they can dial it in and fix whatever it is that's not quite right.

But Latvala.. He really showed that the Yaris can be fast today. I wonder if Neuville would've been able to keep up with his pace today. Looking real interesting for the championship. But I do hope that Neuville manages to bring home some podium places now so that he can get in the championship. A fourway fight between Neuville, Ogier, Tänak and Latvala would be great for the sport.
