WRC » Meeke tops Rally Australia shakedown

I don't know which is more achievable, Kubica making it to the end of the first day without stopping to enjoy the scenery, or Crapkinson breaking into the Top 10 in the first day. WRC just did a small story stating that he is after a good result this weekend and thinks he can get a Full time Drive next year I think the only driving job he will get next year is maybe Valet parking The Poor Guy is Delerious

WRC » Despite Germany, Evans will revert to type for Australia

I don't expect anything different from him. He has been such a Reliable Greenhorn all season and I think he is about to become a Full Share driver lol I would estimate that he will be in the Top 6 by the end of the event. 5th would be a Fantastic Result for him on his 1st visit, but he needs to drive at a comfortable pace and make the finish and get the valuable experience ready for next year You can see how much emphasis drivers put on experience, he is relying on tapping into the Vast experience of his Team mate Mikko to help him get a better understanding of the Nature of the stages. I am certain he will keep it on the island and will be there or there abouts at the end

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

everyone has bad moments in Rallying. Mikko has had some awesome Results. He has won 15 WRC Events, this at a time when Loeb was in his Prime. He would of won a lot more if it wasn't for Loeb. he almost beat Loeb to the World title in 2009. But I don't think all is well at M-Sport with Hirvonnen. He is now saying he is doing the best he can with the car that he has. This suggests to me that he is blaming the Fiesta for not being able to get close to the VWs. That's a shame. Elfyn has the same car and he is doing really well and getting faster and faster all the time. I really do think that this will be his last season with M-Sport Maybe Hyundai will snap him up if he is Unhappy.

WRC » Neuville: We must keep our feet on ground

I think that statement in itself says that they have already gotten a little over excited after winning what became a one horse Race in Germany. Lets not let their Victory run away with things here though. Ogier, Latvala and finally Meeke all crashed out and left Hyundai with what should of otherwise been a 4th and 5th place. Yes a good result, but Not a win by anyones Optimistic Interpretation They have made Solid progress all year and they should be pleased with the progress made, but that was no Win, I would even say they will be disappointed to of gotten their 1st win in this way. Just ask Mads about his one and only Victory in the WRC and I bet he is not too happy to look back on that with excitement. He hasn't gotten close to another win ever since and could be forced to count his one and only win as a default win after Mikko got excluded back in Portugal 2012

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
