    The Citroen sacked him for too many accidents.

    Roll cage didn't do much for the front pillars. Very lucky indeed

    Sue the cage builder! Luck helped no deaths involved. The co-driver has had a stay in hospital, Seb is well on the road to recovery!
    Nothing wrong with how Kris is driving and the notes are fine. They got caught on a 'loose' corner.
    'Loose' is a term when the surface drops in grip....pretty obvious but really hard to write unless you have the luxury of a gravel note crew for corrections.
    Even then a first run stage can turn to merde very quickly! I pretty sure that the FIA doesn't allow the use of a Crystal ball or chicken gizzards for 'extra' insight.

    I can attest to a little bit of loose bluemetal on a corner catching one out...we had a 160 KMH roll in Targa West tarmac rally a few years ago in my Subaru Spec C when we ventured about a foot too wide on a medium corner...not ideal but the FIA spec cage saved me and my co driver from everything but injured pride!

    That seems to fit in with what Meeke said and why others seemed to get through.

    Meeke took the blame saying it was his fault, he went too wide.
