WRC » Loeb secures third win on trot in New Zealand


@ stefanvv Yeah, I'm worried about Mini but I can dream :) To be honest, whilst the signs are fine I still won't quite believe that a competitive VW will be starting until I see it next year. Having said that, Ogier must have faith in it, there's no way he'd have made that move otherwise. I think Ogier is the best driver aside from Loeb, Hirvonen doesn't quite have that edge he had in 2009 in my opinion. As for the ones you mentioned, Neuville look extremely promising and the others are showing what they can do in varying degrees.

WRC » Loeb secures third win on trot in New Zealand


I think we all dream of a Citroen vs Ford vs Toyota vs Volkswagen vs Mini future. I don't think the standard of drivers is that bad anyway, in Loeb, Ogier, Latvala, Hirvonen and Solberg the basic nucleus of a very competitive series is there. Add in Sordo as one of the best tarmac drivers never to win a rally, it is clear that the sport's problem is a manufacturer deficiency.

In fairness, there mightn't be this fuss over team orders if Latvala and Ford could get their act together and force Citroen to push. I hope they don't go to IRC in 2014 as has been threatened, and we need Volkswagen and Mini to push forward. I have high hopes for VW in particular, and I think there is still potential for this sport if we can get these four manufacturers competing at the sharp end.

F1 » Maldonado penalised for Hamilton collision


Rant: Now I am not just referring to Maldonado or this incident here, but I think the FIA need to stop handing out so many penalties. We are told that the DRS and the terrible tyres are all aimed at improving racing, but what they seemed to overlook in the first place was a driver's mindset. If a driver knows that a fifty fifty move could result in a penalty if something goes wrong they are less likely to attempt it, hence less racing and less interest for the fans. Nonetheless, it seems that there is no such thing as a 'racing incident' anymore.' I don't think anyone should have been punished here, Maldonado was shoved off track, just like many drivers were in the exact same way this race. I don't think it's fair to expect a driver to always just put up with being dumped into a run off area, particularly in cases like this where he was alongside and entitled to expect Hamilton to leave him room. I am not having a go at Hamilton, every driver does it, Maldonado did it to Raikkonen at t
