Lets all Pray for Rain For Petter

Its Good to see Ford refusing tactics

Sadly Citroen are still up to Their tricks though

At Least Petter is his own man and kept the peddle to the Metal and leads in style

I think I would like to see Petter win, it would be so nice for him after all the effort that he has put in

He Really Deserves Victory

dafydd. ford are also up to their tactics! they slowed hirv down so that solberg can clear the road for them. but knowing petter, i doubt that running first will slow him down.
as for loeb, he seems a little off colour. went backwards slightly today.
and matt, youre meant to keep it between the ditches. now kimi has your 8th spot!

Would be great to see Petter take the victory in Japan tomorrow !!!

Strange that Loeb is off the pace this weekend - as has already been mentioned, looks like he wants to take the championship on his home event.

Sad to see our great British hope spun off earlier today. He was looking good for the victory in eighth place at the end of Day 1, only 3m 16s off the pace.....

My theory:

Why Loeb is slow. This is an internal problem maybe with the mechanic. Remember that Loeb suggest Sebastien Ogier to move to Ford. I think some mechanic inside Citroen support Ogier and want to make sure he in the podium and Loeb know this. Both car Loeb and Sordo having problem during slow section but not Ogier.
