I think Sebastien will really have his work cut out for him if he is to extend his Championship lead. It will be interesting to see if the Ford boys can reach the end of the event without a puncture or any other dramas

If this can be achieved i think Ford can and will win this event and get the other car home on the Podium too based on the pace shown in Mexico, I also believe that a lot of thought has to go into the tactics of road position, imagine choosing position 1 only to learn that the organisers later extened the gaps to 4 minutes leaving the driver to struggle with the loose gravel and less dust for drivers coming behind

The Dust was very bad in Spain last year in the dark, even with 4 minute gaps, I would still say that its going to be better to open the road for who ever wins the qualifying stage
