I have a feeling that Citroen have once again made the best Tactical choice and certanily the safest one

If the water trucks throw enough water on to the roads it will also eliminate the problem of running 1st on the road, leaving Citroen with perfect and near perfect visability and good grip, also this will soon dry out after a dozen cars have gone through creating dust yet again, so a win win

Then you also have to consider the Puncture risk with huge rocks that could get pulled into the road for later cars to hit

Maybe the Rain thats due at 10pm will come early but then the roads will get rougher with every car that passes, I Really fail to see how running last can benefit Ford, Best scenario for Ford is no water, 4 minute gaps and lots of wind to carry the dust away, as i said before the best strategy would have been to have a Ford 1st and last covering both bases
