I hope that brings to a close the WRC career of one Matt 'hapless' Wilson. A 5 year plan that delivered nothing, no wins, 0 podiums. In keeping with his previous 64 rallies our comedy Cumbrian's 7th Rally GB was so underwhelming. Unlikely I know, but I hope Malcolm, Ford, Stobbart, Monster wake up and realise what the rest of us already know that Hapless is as useful as @rse gravy. Utter disgrace.

I wonder what Loeb would have to do in WRC to top the Castrol rankings...

Anyway, a fitting end to a great season and to a great car ! Well done Loeb ! It was Seb Day today ! :D

Gutted! I was hoping/praying/begging for Solberg to win...it would have made a nice change.

I hope like *%$#@ next year will be better than this year, I'm tired of see Loeb winning AGAIN. Congratulations to Loeb he is the best......but does he realise how boring the sport has become?

Please retire at the end of 2011 Loeb.

So Latvala loses a minute 10 and still manages to beat Hirvonen!!!!! I think it's time MSport put their full support behind Latvala rather than Hirvonen.

Maybe they should drop Hirvonen and replace him with Petter.

Well done Loeb that was a serious piece of driving... sorry not to see Petter on the top step after all his commitment to the sport. Disappointing run from Dani and Mikko. If only Latvala didn't burst that tyre it would have been a great spectacle to the end. Malcolm has some serious thinking to do. Matt must be shown the door perhaps he could make the tea for the team. Mikko should be given his seat, Petter should be taken on (it's been 10 years, get over it Malcolm) to the A team with Latvala. That would be a very strong line up well capable of toppling Citroen next year. Oops I forgot money comes before talent..........

Having been and watched all 3 days, the top WRC/S2000 boys are seriously commited, Awesome!!! Really enjoyed the event. No, it's not what it used to be, and that raised another point.
The organisers will claim it was a success - but was it? The national media coverage has been virtually non existent - how on earth is that success? This event used to get TV,Radio and plenty of paper coverage. Sad to see the sport and event ignored.

What more does loeb need to prove? Anything beyond this year is just killing the sport. Having the same guy always winning is boring! And when something is boeing they watch something else.

I would have more respect for loeb if he retired from wrc and went onto another motorspot. You've left your mark, it will be there for a very long tome so just more on already!

Seb does have something else to prove! Can he take the championship again with the new era of car?If so,I think he will retire.The best- definitely yes, but so sorry Petter didn't win.

Loeb is the winner again ... I think the people themselves who are involved in rallying are destroing the sport such as Malcom Wilson who is one of my idols for what he is doing with Ford in rallying but wake up Malcom pleaaaaaase and sign Latvala, P.Solberg, Mikelsen , p-G Anderson NOOOOOOW !!! these guys shuld fill the lineup at BP Ford and the Stobart teams .

Why are the jealous Loeb haters accusing the Champion of making rallying boring? In fact he is doing the opposite. Loeb winning is making the WRC very interesting. Why should successful sportspeople be punished? If Loeb should be forced to retire then so should Schumi, Rossi,Alonso,Kristensen etc the list is endless.

The Loeb bashers are only upset because their favourite driver is not winning. If their fav driver was doing the same thing as Loeb, they would be changing their tune.

If I saw Petter or Meeke winning 80% of the rallies, I wouldn't be calling for their heads on a silver platter.
