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 » Latvala defiant, makes set-up breakthrough


Well, all is not lost it would seem..... While Latvala will nail it on every Rally from here on in, maybe Ogier will tend to play a little safe now he once again has a comfortable cushion and perhaps not risk everything trying to stop Latvala from winning Latvala seems to be both Confident with his new discovery and determined that he can win Rallies and maybe catch up with Ogier. At the end of the day it only requires one slip from Ogier and the Game is back on again. It would be nice to watch Latvala do all the winning for a change, love the Jackets btw, gotta get me one of those

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 » Abbring exceeds expectations on WRC car debut


Well, as I said before this guy is a very talented youngster and I am only surprised that it has taken this long for a Manufacturer to pick him up and stick him behind the wheel of a WR Car I think he did really well for a Debut WRC drive on such a difficult and specialised WRC event like Sweden. He didn't bin it and he set some reasonable times beating Henning Solberg on several stages and Henning has more experience than most in Sweden He would of been the perfect young driver for Toyota to use to develop the new Toyota WRC and at the same time develop him as a driver for a Full WRC programme starting in 2017. I hope this guy raises a few eye brows as the season rolls on

WRC » Evans beats Meeke to sixth in Sweden


This really does show how far Elfyn has developed. Meeke was contracted to Citroen because he showed he had the speed to compete for regular Podiums, and now Elfyn has beaten him on an event where both drivers were competing on an even playing field for just their second time there. I am sure that Elfyn will even beat his team mate on occasion later this season. He really is coming on strong now. I think Meeke will continue to Impress too and I can see a good few podiums coming for him this season Tanak is also doing really well, comfortably running in 4th on Monte until sliding wide and slipping down over that bank, same again in Sweden but got to the finish still in 4th. I think he will go well by the time we get to Finland and he is feeling more confident in his driving

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
