Yeah, seems everyone is over heating and having technical problems. Very odd. Over heating centre diff seems to have been a problem for at least one car from each manufacturer, and lots of drivers having to switch to road mode at some point in the stage to cool the car down. Bertelli is stopped from what looks like mechanical issues

I'm not mechanically informed, but is the lack of ALS enough to drop four seconds on a SSS? I think that Latvala's lack of pace isn't purely related to his car. Still, go Sisu! He'll hopefully bounce back tomorrow, rejuvenated with a fixed Jaris.
Absolutely. Without ALS a turbo will be slower to spool and off throttle response will be greatly reduced. Given the new regulations, my assumption is that they are running bigger turbos for 2017, which would exacerbate the problem even further.

Turbos are the same, it's the restrictor that has been increased from 33 to 36mm

Wow, went to bed yesterday thinking, the Hyundai look good in 3rd, 4th and 5th place. Not so good now. Any idea what happened to their engines? They won't have overheated on street courses. Something fuel-related? Strange.

Official word is some form of misfiring for all their cars. Maybe engine set up to handle the heat of the day stages, but struggling in the colder and shorter evening?

This always makes me laugh:

SS10: Bertelli - Live tracking shows him stopped at 19,5 km.

Seriously, how often do we have to read this? Maybe he and his team should focus on driving and proper preparation of the car instead of fancy liveries...

To be fair, he's only there for his own enjoyment. He's not trying to win, and he doesn't seem to be aiming for a manufacturers drive. If you have the money to do it, then fair enough!

I don't expect him to win or compete for the top five and I actually think it's good to have some privateers in the top class. I just think he should make some kind of progress. Look at someone like Henning Solberg: He's certainly most entertaining when he has a drive but mostly manages to stay on the road.

And what kind of enjoyment can you get out of rolling again and again?
