sarrazin "elected to take a time penalty" to help wilks. not quite true. it was a team instruction by peugeot, and wilks is embarrassed by getting the podium in this way. get rid of team orders!

@Richard
I agree totally with what you say.
Wrc and F1 have been ruined by it.
The impression that I get is that the manufacturers have the governing bodies by the short and curlies on this issue. Basicly if they are not allowed dictate who wins, they will withdraw from competition.

sideways. yes, irc seems to be the way forward. however the "live" tv was really terrible. there should have been far more outside cameras. the in-car cameras basically showed identical scenes, no matter which car they were in. some in-car is ok, but it was waaaaaaay overdone.

Richard, whilst we are on the topic I think that the motors tv coverage of wrc last yr was terrible. It had no real order to it and the commentary was unbelievably bad (the commentator made mistakes frfequently and then corrected himself..,.sloppy)
Eurosport was way better when they were doing it as the commentary was bang on with memorable phrases and you actually felt like you were following the drivers around for the day. Also motors tv had pretty limited outside cameras at work.
Why so bad??
