I'm a massive for of Jari-Matti but I think that although you can never write of Seb's pace and it was therefore perhaps a little risky, maybe Hirvonen should have been swapped to 1st for the sake of the title chase. After all, Jari-Matti IS the 2nd driver and this is arguably his role in the team.

Great to see Latvala back on top form though, no doubt he will only get better in the future.

I too think Mikko should of gone infront, but Jari has been having a tough time and I think this will help him along.

I can see Jari being number 1 driver for the 2011 season so maybe this is the start of transitional pereod where we see the drivers equal.

Mikko doesnt have the speed of Jari but Jari has been unable to produce the consistancy of Mikko to be a comlete threat to Citroen and Sebastien.

I think Jari did so well to beat everyone this morning and while being 1st on the road, that shows how fast he is and how hungry he was to win.

I think he fully deserves it even if it does Mikko no favours in the title chase.

stupid FIA stewards, they should have excluded cheater loeb..

when adriver breaks a rule, he is excluded...

Like Sordo in Japan 2006..

Is there a difference between Sordo and Loeb in terms of FIA regulations?

I always knew that Latvala got the raw speed, but the kid need to calm down! I lost count how many times he crashed out while on the pace to lead a rally.

The penalty that was handed to Loeb was ridiculous btw..
