You should include:

1. Loeb is the 2012 WRC Champion. The next races is only to complete the calendar.
2. Ford is the same disgrace, but they love to be the punching bag for Citroen. Another horrible race for them. Even worse than unOfficial Mini.
3. Hirvonen showed how bad he is.

I think Ford will have a difficult season. Solberg will score some good points but its harnessing JML that will be the most difficult thing.

I think JML has talent and speed, but needs to remember the rally is not won on the first day. He reminds me of Colin McRae who never won as many championships as he should of for a man with so much talent.

I also think Hirvonen may not win the championship but will pick up the points that Citroen need to win the championship.

Oh yesh aye.

I will try to say the opposite

1. Loeb is not going to win this championship
2. It was another marvelous weekend for ford. Latvala ou Solberg is going to win the 2012 Championship.
3. Ford should focus on Hirvonen. He is the main threat, not Loeb.
4. Mini is worse than Ford, in spite the huge amount of dollars they are spending on WRC.
5. Ford did the right thing. They have best car and then it is not necessary to pay for Ogier or Loeb. Another Solberg and Latvala are better than Loeb.
6. It is good for Ford Image winning. Being 3th or worse is even better for its reputation.
