If positions remain the same at the finish, Hirvonnen will lead the Championship with 199 Points, Loeb will still have 196 points and Ogier will Leap up to 192 Points

Then you have the extra Power stage points ontop. If Ogier crashed out Hirvonnen would have 201 Points for 3rd and Ogier would only have 167 points

Loeb has to Retire here or he will get a penalty for using a new Engine before Spain, if he retires now with a broken engine and doesnt use Super Rally the team can replace the engine before Spain Penalty free

I think this as exciting as the WRC has ever been for many years, 3 drivers have a chance to be World Champion this year

From the Interview at the end of stage 7 I think Mikko needs to wake up and take this Rare chance to Scoup massive points advantage and get upto 4th, intead he just fell back to 6th

Poor Jari Matti is now 5th and will be asked to drop back to help Mikko, not a bad thing but hard to do when Mikko is himself dropping back and dragging Jari with him

He could win the Title here, its like he doesnt want it bad enough and it makes me frustrated. He will probably leave here leading the Title anyway, but he has to stay infront in Spain and G.B.

I cant believe he is playing it safe and taking what he knows will be 5th, If i were him I would try for 4th and also scoop 3 points on the Power stage with no Loeb around.....
