Thoughts from the Kitchen Table - Mexico Marks Meeke's Re-Emergence

Mexcio might have been short on entries but it was far from short on talking points. So much to talk about, and apologies or not including Elfyn's fine podium, but the hot topic of debate was Meeke's "Dirty Tricks" moment and the inclusion of a wonky jump in the opening stage. It might be a little late, but sit back and enjoy nearly 30mins of the finest Rally Mexico analysis
