WRC » Hirvonen grabs Swedish lead, Solberg charges


It's game on in Sweden as Mikko Hirvonen surges past Mads Østberg for the lead and Petter Solberg slashes the deficit to both of them - with Jari-Matti Latvala still very much in the reckoning, too...

good close race at the top. pity ford are already applying team orders. latvala is not too happy about it. looking at loebs times, he has reclaimed a sizable dollop. pity he had the two punctures, otherwise he would be up there with the others.
watching in car footage of ogiers car, he was really lucky. he went off the road and ended up inches from a parked 4 X 4. it looks as if beter marshalling control is neccessary. hey, and matts not doing too bad. for a brit in the snow, hes only seven minutes behind.

What team orders? Do you mean stopping Latvala taking the lead? It's a sensible approach, splitting the strategy. All I've heard from Latvala today is he didn't know which was the best decision so he just listened to the team.
