WRC » Latvala defiant, makes set-up breakthrough


Not the best of news for drivers and Rival Teams though, Latvala has been very Potent in the last 2 seasons and watching him and talking to him in Finland last year he was never in doubt about the result there. He wanted that win and he took it If he has found a tweak with the new car that will allow him to be even faster that is just demoralising for the others, the only drivers who would be protected by this recent discovery would be his team mates obviously Lets see what happens in Mexico though, that will demonstrate how significant this development really is. If Ford, Citroen and Hyundai are left wondering what the 3 Blue Blurs were on the stages then we are in for a 3 horse race this season and they may as well award VW the Trophy now

WRC » Meeke: Something is missing


Clipped a Rock ?? I think he meant to say we side swiped a Bank or a Rock face ! I feel bad for Kris, he is extremely talented and should of got a podium in Mexico. The only consolation is that Neuville did exactly the same thing on the exact same corner and Kubica also had a similar but unrelated accident somewhere else. I think he can recover though, I think Matton will be restricting his Freedom in Argentina a little. I would expect Kris to have a fairly clean and comfortable run in Argentina and finish 5th or 6th by the end of the Rally

WRC » Evans matches WRC career-best in Mexico


This is great news for Elfyn, yes ok there were several drivers who went out and this was in part why he finished 4th, but the key is the margin between his position and the lead. It wasn't 7 or 8 minutes but just 3:40.2 This shows that he could of been a lot closer if Malcolm had let him off the Leash. I am very Happy with his progress and I think he is following in the Footsteps of a certain Belgian driver Thierry Neuville. M-Sport have struggled to hold on to talented drivers in seasons gone by due to a lack of money and Manufacturer support, but I think Elfyn will be Loyal to Malcolm and stay with M-Sport like Loeb did with Citroen I think Elfyn could be getting the odd podium by the end of the season and could be free to fight for the win from 2016. Great Progress !

WRC » Latvala not giving up


Well the only consolation now is that Latvala has to be Balls to the Wall and try and win every remaining Rally, he will no longer feel any Championship pressure to drive with a clever strategy, now he has to just go for it and this will mean that Ogier will also have to give it his all to defend Latvalas attacks Ogier can also now afford to be aggressive and have monster battles for the win on every Rally with a whopping 35 point lead over the next man. Winning in Mexico means he could fall off the bike and Not score a single point and still be left with a comfortable lead if that happened Neuville also seems to be knocking on the door, so this could really heat things up and make it very interesting to watch from a Sporting perspective. Lets see what Latvala and Neuville can do in Argentina !

WRC » Ogier: I did not need to push too hard


This is why not many people like Ogier, not only does he win every Rally and make the Sport look and seem boring but he is shallow enough to rub it in and insult his fellow competitors by suggesting it was easy Its like the F.I.A are actually his employers and are paying him to try and encourage people to stop watching the WRC or something. I was disappointed that Latvala was unable to get the better of him, even the Power stage Latvala seemed spent. I hope he is not slipping back into his old ways of being a frustrated driver who crashes all the time. He could be so great, he just needs to Relax and believe in himself like Ogier does. Maybe Neuville can in future make Ogier work harder and beat him

WRC » Kubica 'happy' with Rally Sweden performance


Matt Never found himself leading a WRC event, nor did he set a string of fastest times on a given WRC Event. Kubica has been making solid progress and Sweden was Far from his worst performance, the Three big set backs in Sweden that cost time were Two Mechanical issues and a Time penalty, his driving was better than most of the other Top drivers who nearly all went off and made errors. Richard you need to actually follow the Rally before you comment Your comment makes me wonder if you were watching a different Rally than the rest of us

WRC » Latvala to play catch up in Mexico


Well I don't think that it will be an easy task for him but I do think that he will need to battle Ogier hard and try his best to Win in Mexico. I am sure that Ogier can finish 2nd if Latvala wins, but ideally Latvala could do with maybe having the Two Citroen boys finishing 2nd and 3rd or Maybe a Citroen 2nd and a Ford in 3rd. I am sure that it will be an interesting Rally and one that I hope will not be straight forward for Ogier. Any Rally would be a welcome change that sees another driver out front and Leading and Ogier trying to keep up Sweden was a welcome change but Ogier still managed to win it on the last stage. Hopefully for Latvala, Ogier he will be 3rd or 4th in Mexico and just accept the points and maybe Neuville will get a 5th or something. From a viewers appeal point of view it would be great if Ogier pulled a wheel off and Retired as this would keep it interesting from a public perspective.

WRC » Kubica 'happy' with Rally Sweden performance


Yes I agree Cobalt, the one thing that I admire about Kubica is that he is defiant about beating the odds. His hand is obviously a real handicap for him but he keeps coming back season after season hoping to beat the odds and break through as a Top WRC driver He is slowly mastering all the challenges that the WRC throws at him and he has recently been banging in some really Top times. Monte Carlo shows he has an incredible ability to control the car on slippery surfaces whist reading and understanding the grip levels perfectly I am interested to see how he puts everything together this season and develops
