i see that ford is up to its usual dirty tricks! hirvonnen has admitted that he delierately held back so that he would NOT be first on the road. why on earth is this sort of spoiling tactic allowed to be used? it makes a mockery of the sport

Richard, come on now, you been about long enough to know that tactics are part of the sport, it was when I was driving in the ninties and and still is today. whats ruining the sport is a few people whinging about it istead of ambracing the battle like we see today. Cotez, I dont think for one minute that Ford underestimated the Citroens, in Loeb you have the best driver in the world in any sport, you dont undersestimate a five time world champ who has won on every surface. This is a serious game here. I think the battle so far this morning between Loeb and Mikko has been imense and I only wish I had put down to go to Norway now. Who ever wins will of thouroughly deserved thier victory.

dafydd, i fully accept what you are saying, but to put the "tactics" in context, seb could also back off to stymie miko, etc etc, and this could go on ad infinitum. however as loeb was ahead of miko, miko was able to see how much he had to "lose". i know this all seems legal, but it seems to be the only way that miko can beat seb, and i think it is highly unjust. why not just let them have a straight fight, and forget all this "after you" antics, that ultimately make a farce of the rally? it is up to miko to improve to sebs level, though he is not far off it at present.
