WRC » Hirvonen 'definitely' after top-three on Rally Australia


I would be so pleased for Mikko if he was back to his classic best in Oz. Everyone still wants to see Mikko back to his old ways, fighting for the win. I am sure that he sees the 3 Polos and at least one of the Citroens as his arch Rivals, maybe one or more of them will not be at the finish though and maybe Mikko will be fast enough to be the best of the rest and claim a podium there I believe somewhere Mikko still has it within himself to win, even if the others don't have problems, its just that I havnt seen that Mikko for a while. If he has finally re discovered his old form and fighting spirit then this Rally could be the one where we see how tough to beat he can be again

WRC » Atkinson wants to be 'as fast as possible' on home event


Well Matty has obviously called time on his WRC Rally Career, I know that a lot of people were critical of him not doing better than he did but he had several top 5 finishes in the WRC and he will always have the Awesome memories and he will always have the skills that he learned along the way. I think he still does most of the testing and shakedown of the cars at M-Sport I have said this loads of times, I don't think people appreciate how fast a driver has to drive to even break into the Top 10 on a WRC event. The only reason I am critical about Crapkinson is that he makes out that he should be fighting for podiums when in Reality he is lucky if he gets a Top 6 time on a stage. He obviously finds the financing for the various drives from willing backers and that is fair enough. Though I much prefer to see when a driver like Kris Meeke or Elfyn Evans get a seat in the WRC though, with little or no money to offer a Team, Just bags of Talent and that's the real way to get a WRC drive

WRC » Atkinson wants to be 'as fast as possible' on home event


Damn it Taz I was waiting for crash.net to post this topic so I could suggest the same thing - lol I cant see him finishing any higher than 6th, and that's assuming 3 or 4 of the Top guys once again go out or have problems of some kind and by some miracle he doesn't with the Likes of Sordo and Hanninen available to them, I just cant understand why they have picked him. Surely the Team now have enough data on crashes to work with But then we are assuming that drivers are picked on Talent and as we know they are usually not picked on Talent, rather how much coin they can put in I have it on very Good Authority that his Kiwi Colleague paid an absolute fortune for his 7 round programme with the Team

WRC » VIDEO: VW's WRC winning streak ends on home soil


Well, back when I was as a Rally driver I always wanted to win of course, but if one driver or one Team keeps on winning it just gets boring and Stale It was good for the Sport that VW and Ogier had a few problems in Germany, It was also Good that Hyundai were able to take a Maiden Win to show other Interested Manufacturers that it is possible to start with a Car that was a blank sheet of paper less than a year before the start of the season and do really well, even in the 1st year The Best Result would however of been a Maiden win for Meeke and Citroen in order to at least be able to Maintain their Unbroken Winning Record in Germany that dates all the way back to 2002 with Loeb and the Xzara. This would of been Good for the Team to Justify their continuation in the Sport.

WRC » Best yet in Germany


His Father was quick on the Black stuff too, I am really impressed with his progress, I am very anxious to see him back in action again in Australia and then extend his WRC Asphalt experience in France and Spain, and of course the Icing on the cake would be to get a strong result on GB, maybe even a podium, but that's pushing it another 4th or 5th on GB would be a great Result and a solid way to end his 1st Full Year as a Works Driver in one of the best Teams in the WRC. I know he will be up there and fighting next year. I would think a Good few podiums are possible next season. It is Great to watch him getting stronger and stronger and not forgetting Meeke too, I am so pleased to see Meeke right up there pushing Ogier and Latvala lately. I think Meeke could find himself leading a WRC Rally again on Rally GB. Lets hope he finds himself leading as he crosses the finish line of the last stage though - lol

WRC » Two stage wins please Kubica


Again, I don't Rate the Guy very highly at all He got out classed by Evans and shown how to do the job Ok you could argue that Evans was so Good on his WR Car Ashpalt Debut that he also Out classed his Multiple WRC Rally winning and Hugely experienced Team mate Mikko Hirvonnen Malcolm thinks very Highly of Kubica, but I just don't see the Potential in all honesty. I can see way more potential in Elfyn. Personally, I would be looking very closely at Pontus Tidemand to fill Mikkos empty seat next year, not potentially Kubica (should mikko leave and Meeke is not available) Finally no one has given Essapekka Lappi a lucky WRC Break yet, I have always seen him as a potential WRC works driver at some point
