Impact of the coronavirus pandemicEdit

The rally was run during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, and came at a time when a series of motorsport events—including Rally Argentina, rounds of the 2020 Formula One World Championship, 2019-20 World Endurance Championship, 2020 World Rallycross Championship and 2020 World Touring Car Cup—were either postponed on cancelled. Organisers of the rally decided to shorten the itinerary by cancelling the final leg of the event. This was done to allow teams time to pack up their equipment and return to their headquarters before a series of travel bans were imposed by European countries trying to manage the virus.[11]

ReportEdit

World Rally CarsEdit

It was a nightmare Friday for the Hyundai squad. An early radiator pipe issue Dani Sordo and Carlos del Barrio cost them over five minutes, and a late terminal engine issue sent the Spanish crew out of the rally; Ott Tänak and Martin Järveoja dropped over forty seconds when they picked up damage to the rear-right corner after leading the rally shortly; Thierry Neuville and Nicolas Gilsoul was running third overall, but they had to retire from the day with electrical gremlins.[12][13] One more major retirement came from Esapekka Lappi and Janne Ferm when their Fiesta caught fire.[14] Six-time world champions Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia managed to stay out of dramas, and won his first rally of the season after the rally ended prematurely.[6]
