Oh well, cant blame Citroen for their tactics but poor old Mikko has now got a tough job to do tomorrow.

Safest tactic is if Jari can drive at 110% to possibly win,even if Loeb is 2nd,Danni 3rd Mikko 4th the difference would be back to zero. Only Jari has that blinding extra speed, but it comes at a big risk of him going off again

More risky, If Mikko and Jari both drive flat out, Mikko wins,Jari 2nd,Loeb 3rd,Mikko gains another 4 points on Seb to take 7 point lead

I think thats the best tactic for Ford, Loeb will have to drive 110% to try and stop them and who knows how it will unfold and end

I think overall everyone has to drive at 110% and see what happens. Exciting huh

Loeb is simply a better driver than Hirvonen and if he maintains his composure he will pull it off.

Something needs to be done about the "road sweeping" position as too many races are decided by these questionable tactics. It is absurd that the first on the road should be at such a disadvantage - especially if you have Loeb behind you. Maybe the organizers could employ the "Junior" drivers to sweep the roads before the competition begins.

Finally, if you want to see REAL driving in the WRC do not allow any of the drivers to have access to their opponents stage times until the end of the day. No driver will ever know where they stand during the event and must drive flat out regardless.

i dislike these tactics, but citroen are only playing ford at their own game. latvala was slowed to let hirvonnen through, so citroen had to respond. makes a mockery of the true spirit of rallying.
