Great start for Jari Matti and Petter

Im just concerned that the Citroen Team chose to hold their Super Soft tyres back for stages where they can make an even bigger difference later on

I hope it was just a better choice by the Ford Boys, but its not like Citroen to make the worse choice

Great start for Ford, still much to do though. The Monty Carlo WRC event is an internatial iconic event....
yes? apart from thirty minutes highlights tonight at 10.30pm..UK time on Motors TV is there any other coverage? if it was football or tennis it would be stuffed down our throats.

How the Hell does this happen ?

Ford sent Jari Matti out on Loebs Tyre choice from this morning and Loeb took Fords choice from this morning so effectively they swapped

This meant that with the road freezing over as the light faded jari had a lot less grip than Citroen and Jari has just rolled in the stage

Ford should of stuck with this mornings choice that worked so well, now poor jari Matti must feel really bad that he has again crashed :-(
