Just a thought on Deutschland rally:
I would like to express my opinion on the subject of punctures. I believe punctures are an inherent part of motorsport. Usually, a driver will puncture when he drives carelessly, or if he/she goes off and hits something. In the last few years, drivers have been getting used to bullet-proof tires and have been taking habits of driving all over the road, ditches included, with no consequences whatsoever.
It seems to me that in most cases, if a driver takes big risks and especially careless ones, the possibility of him or her puncturing and therefore losing time adds spice to the rally. Perhaps Michelin should not strengthen their tires too much, contrary to what some have asked, so as to leave an element of uncertainty.
What do you think?
