On Monday I signed up for the WRC live service but I get a login error username unknown when I try to sign in to the app on my TV mad

Anyone else using this service having the same issue? I can log into the website on my laptop, just not the TV app. Heard nothing back from them by email either.

Prediction :

Any reliability issues aside, that’s the driver/car combination that’ll win this year’s Monte (and probably the championship...)

It's a fair shout. Hopefully the Hyundai's can run him close though.

It's always been an awful site, and somehow they have made it worse!! Getting rid of radio is a stupid decision too. Sometimes it was nice to just have it playing in the background. Saying that though, you would have to put up with the utterly useless person doing the interviews at the end of stage 1 tonight!

Nightmare for M-Sport with leaves in the bumper causing their 3 competitive cars overheating issues. Mad that with all the design and testing that it's only become an issue tonight!

Decent time for Evans, while Rovanpera beats Loeb on his 1st WRC stage start!

Tanak takes first blood from Neuville on Stage 1, but then TN slaps down the new kid on Stage 2 in no uncertain terms (25 seconds faster...)

Just keeping an eye on the times, must have been some run by Neuville!

Good tyre choice and some set up tweaks specifically for Stage 2 apparently. It meant he was compromised on one of the easiest (by Monte standards) first stages on the event ever.

Nice to see Evans going so well this morning.

I’m tempted by a 2021 Monte trip, anyone done it before?

Tanak massive off early in Stage 4. Both crew ok. Car looks to be a long way off the road from the in car footage.

Watching some of the night time stages would be awesome. The crowds looked huge yesterday.

Fastest on Stage 3, and again on Stage 4. Now leading the Monte !!

Proper Shunt that ...

Tanak’s note to his engineers : Must run the car slightly higher on Tarmac from now on ...

Man that Tanak crash is unreal and like something out of a computer game! It never fails to surprise what impacts modern cars can withstand and how crews can walk away from things like that!

Brilliant day from Evans, to lead Ogier on his event until the last stage of the day is no mean feat.

As for Gus Greensmith..

I've done it twice now and without factoring in what winter clothing you need to buy, 4 of you can do the whole event, Wednesday to Monday for around £350, and that's not skimping on food etc! Any questions just fire away smile

Looking at that accident again, that’s probably the biggest that I’ve ever seen and everyone “walks away”. He was flat in top when he lost it and no braking before airborne.

Just seen the videos and photos of end result of crash.

Tanak is lucky to walk away seemingly unscathed, that was simply a humongous crash.
