Can't believe the comment above, but then again if crash had given the true report it would of said he lost power inc the steering and brakes and went straight off the road AL QASSIMI has reported the same problem on ss2, the pace that these lads are at it doesn't take much to cause a big accident

Spot on, having owned a Citroen (brought new) I know how unreliable the road cars car can be but their rally cars run like clock-work.

Surely questions are been asked of M-sport.

As you know, I have been conspicuous by my absence on these forums lately, however, good to see you are still posting !

With regard to my favourite driver, Matt, I believe he only had funding for half a season. When does it run out ?

I must hold my hands up for my earlier post Ford have now checked the data overnight on Mikko's car and said it was driver error,he was 20kph faster into the corner than Jari Matti and Jari Ketomaa and braked 0.8s later than both of them into that corner and they both had a moment also even though they were both a lot slower. I posted with the info at the time sorry !
