Robert had a massive lead but the pilot got his notes mixed up and gave him wrong instructions. Early partnership, they had only a couple of months together.
I am sure all are happy with Roberts speed.
It was supposed to be a rehabilitation but I am not sure RK is able to take it easy. Even in finalstages with huge advantage over the next driver...

AFAIK Loeb lost championship due to co-pilot's error and McRae split with his co-pilot after going off road - it just happens, such is a nature of this sport. Please, take into account one thing: KUBICA WASN'T REALLY PUSHING!! Yes, he took it reasonably easy. Especially on those last stages. Winning the rally was just a bonus, more important was gaining experience with the car and kind of rehabilitation. Slowing down to admire the views, would give him nothing useful, just waist of time. Non of this matter, since no matter who you are, if you get 5 left instead of 3 left (about 50km/h difference) on a damp road you're out (in McRae case it was just a confusion between 2 and 3!)

It is worth remembering that the pace notes are made by the driver not the co-driver. A team effort. It is important for them to understand where the error came. i.e. wrong note, wrongly written down, wrong delivery. I am sure he will have a few more offs until things settle down for both of them. He is bloody fast javascript:insertTextCursor('comment', ':)')

They believe that two sheets of notes stick together - such is Kubica's luck :P Notes probably burned with the car, so no proof. Rumor has it, it's hard to deliver all notes, because of Kubica's speed.
