WRC » Wilson keen to get Bouffier out again


I just thought I would say that whilst I do not wish to add insult to injury, it only goes to show that what the Fiesta WRC is and was capable of. It has to be said that I was a little bit surprised at Mikko and his lack of pace on Monte, I thought he would of been comfortably fighting for a Podium place on the Monte with all his experience. Sweden is next up and it will be his chance to Redeem himself. If he is once again off the pace in Sweeden it will be a sign that he will struggle for the rest of the season. I hope Malcolm can help him unlock his old speed, and fast..........

WRC » Meeke happy and delighted with podium


Im really glad that Yves decided to give Kris this chance, you know its crazy how Ogier had to fight Kris all the time in the Juniors etc, yet Ogier got his chances and is now World Champion and Kris is only now getting his big chance. I think Ogier is right about Meeke being his closest rival, I said it a few weeks ago, I think Meeke could outrun his Team mate on a regular basis, although I still think Latvala and Neuville will make Ogier perspire some..... Finally I think its only fair we don't forget the efforts of Elvyn Evans in the Fiesta, he had a great weekend and no doubt learned loads from this event. Well done on a brilliant 6th place on such a challenging Rally where experience is everything.

WRC » Wilson keen to get Bouffier out again


I had understood that he was going to do monte in a Hyundai but it couldn't be confirmed as solid at the time (now I understand it was because of talks with Sordo), I bet Hyundai are kicking themselves now having dropped Bouffier for Sordo. It sounds like Hyundai are still considering him for a seat, although I think they are spreading themselves a bit thin with what would be 4 part time drivers in Sordo, Hanninen, Atkinson and now possibly Bouffier too. Obviously Sordo is doing all the Asphalt Rallies and Hanninen is doing Sweeden all the remaining gravel rallies with the exception of Oz which will be the sole event for Atkinson, so if Hyundai do sign Bouffier it would clearly have to be a 3rd car, which would be impressive.

WRC » Wilson excited about 2014 chances


This is the great thing about Malcolm, his Team is more like a Huge Family but they also are very professional and are able to supply the drivers with the best cars and the best feeling for them to challenge for a win, At Citroen they are perhaps too serious and the feeling is of pressure and expectation rather than freedom to express yourself on the stages I hope Mikko finds his feet and gets back ontop, I am very Impressed with the performances of both Robert Kubica and Elvyn Evans this morning, Im a little surprised that Malcolm thought Elvyn should take that tyre choice but didn't strongly suggest that same choice to Mikko and Robert though, like Kris Meeke said, I don't know why others didn't choose that because they only had everything to lose by not chosing that I hope all 3 drivers can stay on the road, and I am hoping that the conditions remain tricky so Mikko can maybe redeem himself and get into the top 5 possibly, and wow Bryan Bouffier leading for now, lets see If he can

WRC » Bouffier extends lead on Monte, Kubica third


Well day 1 of Monte was certainly a bit of a shock, not so much the weather but the fact the that ironically its was Hyundai that made the best tyre choice and the old hands all fell on their sword choosing not to take 2 snow tyres as spares in case of snow, this is not the Acroplolis, there was a actually a good chance of snow after all, so why wouldn't they take that option ??? Well done to Bouffier, Evans and Meeke in Particular, and I suppose Sordo too. Bouffier could yet win this but obviously Ogier is closing fast so lets see what tomorrow brings. Great to see Meeke doing so well, I hope he keeps inside his comfort zone and keeps it on the island. Shame Neuville went out this morning, would of been good to see him leading on their 1st event, he had the tyres in the boot and im sure he planned on using them. It would be great for M-Sport to get two cars on the podium and maybe see kris meeke get on there too somewhere, maybe even the top step. It is possible if Ogier slips up tr

WRC » M-Sport reveals 2014 livery


For Chris HX, I certainly don't think that there is any more Qatar money, the Deal was to be the Teams Primary sponsor for the 2013 season only, that ended at the end of last year so that is definitely finished and over with now. You have to Remember that Malcolm does not have any money coming in, so why would he spend tens of Thusands making his Trucks plain, I am sure Qatar have been contacted regarding this issue and s they are aware and are probably greatful for the free advertising. Secondly Hyundai do have the Calibre of Drivers that VW have, Thierry Neuville is their Lead driver this Guy will be a Match for Ogier all day long, it is the car that is questionable at the moment I personally don't think that the Hyundai will be a match for the other 3 cars straight away, I hear that the Engine isnt as strong as the drivers would like it to be at the moment, but that could change or could of changed since I heard about it a few months ago
