After SS3 Evans and Mads are leading over Ogier and Tänak :dizzy:  :D So much is happening already, mistakes, technical issues, setup issues... oh my oh my.  @KickUp  Will Codemasters make sale weekend for D4  if  the rally would end 1.Evans 2. Meek ?

Well... Meeke has stopped on SS4, so that's not happening... 

And while I write this it looks like Breen has stopped aswell. 

Neuville lost 20 seconds from his broken damper.

Both Toyotas has lost their front splitters, and Hänninen down on power.

Soooo... well. Let's see if anyone get's through at all this year ;-)

Sordo, Breen, Meeke, Paddon, Hanninen with crashes and serious mechanical problems, to a lesser degree also Neuville... That is some carnage we have after just four stages. This new generation of cars seems quite demanding and outright treacherous.

If that continues, I'm betting on Tidemand getting onto the podium. Or maybe Bertelli, if he can keep it on the road...

Ouchies!

But let's see, the top runners who haven't had massive crashes or failures:

1.3GBRE. EVANSGBRD. BARRITTM-SPORT WORLD RALLY TEAMMRC138:40.6
2.10FINJ. LATVALAFINM. ANTTILATOYOTA GAZOO RACING WRTMRC139:04.2+23.6+23.6
3.14NORM. OSTBERGNORO. FLOENEM-SPORT WORLD RALLY TEAMRC139:12.8+8.6+32.2
4.2ESTO. TANAKESTM. JARVEOJAM-SPORT WORLD RALLY TEAMMRC139:14.0+1.2+33.4
5.1FRAS. OGIERFRAJ. INGRASSIAM-SPORT WORLD RALLY TEAMMRC139:16.3+2.3+35.7
6.5BELT. NEUVILLEBELN. GILSOULHYUNDAI MOTORSPORTMRC139:28.6+12.3+48.

Still quite open here. One small mistake or part failure and it's all gone. Neuville lost at least 20 seconds from his damper failure.

So did Lefebvre really miss his flight? That's what I heard at Motorsport Forums. Really embarrassing.

Also, if Latvala finishes second or first and Ogier finishes either seventh or fourth, Latvala will go back into the lead of the championship! YEEEEEES! I wouldn't be disappointed if he finishes second at the expense of Evans, though. That would be seriously cool.

Latvala and his Jaris are a match made in heaven.

Evans and Dmack are doing great job, benefiting both from starting position and good tire. If hard compound is as good and tolerates higher temperatures better than last year, will/can M-Sport change tires manufacturer for certain rallies?  Too bad for Latvala,  but 2-5 are having big fight.

Except for Elfyn, the rollercoaster continues. Latvala gets a big puncture on SS8 and drops 30 seconds. Tänak also stricken with a smaller puncture, and goes down to 5th. Still just 40 seconds between 2nd and 6th, so anything can happen. Wonder how Elfyn and his DMacks will hold up to road sweeping tomorrow.
