Awesome drive on Saturday set up the victory.

Got to mention another top result for Ogier also. 2 excellent rallies for him so far this season. Sordo should be looking over his shoulder I think.

Petter seems like a new man also, good to see.

My post on the eve of the rally stated: "Fully expect status quo to be restored and Loeb to claim Mexico win number 4. Ford could face the full backlash from Citroen with strong rallies may be in prospect for Ogier, and Petter Solberg also.

Not so strong rally expected from usual tail end charlies Wilson and Martin."

Pretty right on all counts though predicting Wilson would be a disgrace for all concerned is not the work of Nostradamus.

Daffydd, at the end of last season you said 2010 was the year Matt Wilson "needed to push really hard".

Well two rallies gone and we have a 7th place to show. Ogier with much less WRC expereince is showing the way. How can Matt Wilson look at himself in the morning?

No point complaining about team orders. Citroen's been at it for years and this is the first year were Ford finally said 'we have to do the same' and designated Latvala no.2 driver for the season. If they'd done that last year, Hirvonen would've had the title. Very poor from Msport as a whole in Mexico. Don't know what went wrong. Good to see Solberg up there again. Wilson should've done everything to have him in the Focus. Block running very close to Matt on his debut. Doesn't exactly bode well for Matt. Is this year 6 of the '5 year plan'?
