Watch Citroen's WRC team fix a ruined car in the blink of an eye

Everyone says that rally drivers are generally more fearless (read: insane) than any other form of race driver on the planet.
It's a difficult point to argue against, but very few people apply the same logic to the travelling circus of mechanics and crew who follow the World Rally Championship around the world — and I'm not sure why.
When cars crash in WRC, they crash big. They roll over banks, they slam into trees, they slump into ditches. And all of this generally means that the mechanics that follow the series are among the most dedicated and hardest working. And we saw this over the weekend after Kris Meeke rolled his Citroen C3 over the weekend at Rally Argentina.
The damage was severe; bad enough that others might've considered simply withdrawing then and there. The Citroen Racing team however pressed on, and in just three hours were able to turn Meekes car into a safe and mended vehicle (save for a few ripples in that bodywork, but we can let that slide I think).
Top effort, and a tip of the hat to all concerned.
