another humilation to ford. they are 4th and 5th counting with Loeb's bad luck! FORD GIVE UP PLEASE!
Hirvonen was a joke! Letting him change position with latvala was no sense. There is another tarmac rally. Hirvonen will be the last of all again!

Great result for Sordi.
Ford team need a reshuffle big time.
Watched coverage of event on WRC, it was excellent, how long before we have to pay for it.
Also regarding it being a Tarmac event, what ever was happend to Rally Ireland. Roads are so much more narrower and bumpy compared to the motorways that they use for stages over there.

For those who think Ford didn't have the pace this weekend I recomend them to think again , without the loose time on stage 3 Jari-Mati Latvala could be the winner by 2.1 sec in front of Ogier!! (that if you eleminate the time penalty for the jump start and the penalty for helping Hirvonen)so go to the stage times and see because time stage never lie !!

As for Hirvonen ...well... he need some tarmac lessons from Latvala ... CLEAR !!

watching coverage of the event, i saw, with horror, the use of re-bars on the corners. i know these caused a few accidents, but they could also have been lethal, acting as a spear travelling at up to 100 mph.
the fia need to act immedately to ban use of items such as these, to deliniate corners. potentially more lethal than kubicas accident.
