This article doesn't mention he's suffering with the flu, he barely made it out of his scratcher.

As Darth Vader would say.....Impressive....most impressive.

He deserves a win this year....and a feckin works drive.

I agree Taz. Most impressive.

I think a win for Petter would be very popular. I suppose he's the link we still have with all the old great names. McRae, Burns, Pannizzi, Makinnnen, Gronholm, Sainz etc as he was around then.

I get a bit sick of of 'Dave' only paying lip service to him and concentrating on the top 4 or Kimi.

Works drive. Hmm I don't think there's room. I suspect that Latvala and Hirvonen bring money to Ford.

I reckon best thing he can do is get a 'works' DS3 and continue in the same vain. Citroen after all did give him 2 C4s when Rautenbach couldn't get one.

Be good if he ran another car as part of a team i.e like with Muller etc.

Me- I think it is great what he is doing this year. Make me tune in again at lunchtime to see what is going on etc.

Shame he will lose it tomorrow being first on the road. Let's hope he doesn't follow his current trend of leading on day one and finishing in 4th.
