I was dismayed to hear how malicious spectators had apparently caused the time consuming mishaps which delayed Colin McRae and Armin Schwarz on the recent Monte Carlo Rally.
I appreciate that rallying can never be policed as effectively as circuit racing, but surely it is not beyond the wit of the FIA to do something to reduce the possibility of such mindless interference?
While they consider how best to achieve this, wouldn’t it be better if the Monte was struck from the World Championship for the time being? In the new age of the rota system, surely there are suitable substitutes?
