wrc all the way.nowadays f1 has become more of better machine and better strategy.check out renault.good reliable cars and good strategy.wha happened to schumi then.(no fight schumi fans...plz...its my opinion).
wrc is more about control,speed in a realistic environment not in a closed circuit.
Compare driving on a flat road compared to a road lined with pebbles,bumps,stones,rocks etc.

Compare driving a car specifically made for the track to a car which is made for road use.(legal everyday car).

Compare crashing into a tyre wall to falling off a cliff or ramming into a mountain side or tree.

Compare monocoque carbon fibre driver section to a regular car reinforced by a roll cage.
you get the idea which involves more skill.

I prettymuch stopped watching F1 after good ol' mika decided to get his driving boots off for good . Its been MotoGp with a smattering of Wrc thrown in.
I must admit though it was endless hours spent playing colin mcrae 02 03 and 04 that got me hooked onto wrc

Certainly WRC is better anyday considering the skill and toughness the drivers are put through and its much more exciting to watch WRC than F1.Imagine the opposite locks,the handbraking turns etc.. so exciting and also pumps ur adrenaline when u get back to your car after watching it.To may Any day WRC rocks....its just the F1 has been given more of the hype and publicity in India and also most part of the world that has made it popular among youth.If the same kind of encouragement, broadcast, money is spilled into WRC most people would prefer watching WRC to F1....Truely an AWESOME SPORT....WRC ROCKS!!

F1 = boring
and its not even as extreme as Drag racing or driver skill dependant as WRC
It has just been marketed well and advertised as exterme motorsports etc etc..

While F1 has better visibility, I've always respected WRC more - and I believe its more entertaining and gruelling while requiring probably slightly more skill-sets from a driver than F1 does.

19000 rpms, 7 second pit stops, 300kmph speeds, huge G forces. Life on the edge.
I know how it feels when a big car whizzes past me too close at 150kmph (me doing 60). At 300, I can only imagine the adrenaline rush. F1 for me.

MotoGP for me. There is no other motorsport on TV that's more exciting then this. There is more overtaking during a single race in MotoGp then the entire season of F1. Also there is more of human involvement in MotoGp then in F1. Maybe there will be more overtaking when they come back to slicks. Now with MS retired things might become more interesting.
