Yeah I DEFINITELY wouldn't have predicted those two at the top. I'd love Dani to win a rally after all these years though. Easily the best tarmac driver aside from Loeb over the last 5 or 6 years, even taking into account the Citroen's apparent advantage on the surface.

Why ford never signed sordo i don't know, they are now gonna suffer for it. While Mistake prone Hirvonen and Latvala will continue to make slow time a New team will win. Its not that the fiesta is slow its Hirvonen and Latvala. Better it would have Been if Petter solberg and Dani Sordo were driving for ford instead.

What a slap in the face for Ford. If Mini/Prodrive wins this event (with pretty much an elephant of a car), Ford will seriously need to rethink their investment with Msport.

Great news, as much as I would love Petter to win I can not help really wanting Dani to take his and MINI's first win.

Kimi has gone home... well that proves the WRC is the latest sport he has lost interest in!

Binza, this is the other way around now, its better to be 1st car on Asphalt, as leter cars will drag mud onto the road

It would be nice for Dani to win after years of sticking his nose out front only for Citroen to order him to drop back behind Blue eyes

I would also like to see Petter win as he has worked so hard over the last few years and a win would be great for him and the team, especially as he has been stuck on 13 wins for 6 seasons now

I would really like to see Dani win his Home Rally next month though, maybe Petter can win France and he can win Spain, its certainly a very interesting Rally right now though
