Sorry JML, you might think that you are starting the year as the M-Sport No. 1 driver, you certainly will not finish it that way. Petter will beat you hands down and if he can get the sorted quick enough, I really think Petter will be champion in 2012.

Good news for the WRC.

A really interesting driver line-up. Solberg can push that extra 5% without worrying about binning his own car and Lavala is very quick (even on sealed surfaces) and great to watch.

Petter's last chance to win another title.

In the words of Sebastian Vettel: "YES!!! That's what I'm talkiing about!"

This is great news. I actually had a massive smile on my face when I heard the news. Plus as Chris J pointed out, the car looks far better without the Abu Dhabi branding.All we need now is for MINI to confirm that they're competeing in the full season and we'll be a happy bunch.

Roll on Monte-Carlo.
