Just tried to watch the 1st day coverage on Motors TV in the UK. Commentary sounds like its being done by someone watching the programme at the same time as me and commentating down a poor mobile phone line. Can hardly hear it, but can hear it enough to be annoying. Shoddy work by the TV producers. Makes WRC look very poor.

Shame really as its the most interesting event for a long while, ruined by poor TV.

Motors TV is a waste of a sky channel... unless you happen to love the Autosport show rather than V8 supercars previews... or have an unhealthy addiction to FMX

Citroen Total team driver Dani Sordo was the first to go. The Spaniard, in fourth place overnight, damaged his C4 WRC after hitting something in the road. He stopped at the 22.9km point.

Soon after, Stobart Ford driver Matthew Wilson went off the road at a left-hand corner two kilometres before the finish. Wilson's Focus came to rest beached in a ditch with three wheels off the ground.

Monster World Rally Team driver Ken Block was the stage's third victim. The American stopped on a hairpin corner 23.67km from the start, his Ford Focus brought to a halt by broken suspension.
