Doesn't look good for the championship as loeb is clearly on form and now well ahead in the championship on points and there are stll four Tarmac rallies to come too. I am also fed up of these road position tactics it is a farce rally is supposed to be about who is the quickest not who has the most team mates that can sacrifice themselves

Nice to see Kimi get his first point. He was pretty far off concerning the overall time though. Hope he was just playing save and still got something up his sleeves.

I know tactics are apart of rallying (especially with the current rules and on gravel with runners at the front having to sweep the roads). But what happened today with Sebastien Ogier (and to a lesser extent with Mikko Hirvonen) is just really disappointing. I appreciate there is a lot at stake for Citroen and Ford. However I think both went too far today and crossed 'the line'. A real shame for the sport.

It took Matthew Wilson 8 rallies to score his first points (8th position like Kimi). I assume he had previous rallying experience as well.

WRC really should ban team orders. Today we had a chance to get an exciting finish, but instead we got a farce. At least in F1 they tried to hide team orders, but in WRC its always clear to everyone.
