Well the pilot makes a bigger difference than in F1 and MotoGP is you ask me....Look at how slow Matt Wilson was in a similar car.

Maybe that's a bad comparison as Matty takes an almost buddhist zen like approach to rallying :p

I wish him good luck, probably will need him. I believe so far he is proving his role in Ford - contribution with his experience. I'm not fan of team tactics, they should push as much as they can (not being stupid of course), so P1, P2 this doesn't matter (may be not true for Citroen though).

Nuff Respect for Mr. Solberg ! Sponsoring your own team with your pocket shows a real dedication to the thing you love doing. Not many of us have the same opportunity, commitment and sacrifice.
Big applause for him !
