Well its a Mega Blow but apparently the conditions are like we have never seen before. I have been looking at the splits and seeing Jari-Matti / Mikko and Petter loosing over a minute to Sordo who is 1st on the road

Then Jari-Matti went off on stage 5 and Petter the same on stage 6. This is very sad for the Ford team who havnt lost both cars in a Rally for probably almost a decade. Jari hit a Rock which appears to of broken his suspension and sent him into a ditch, also Petter has found a ditch

Maybe Tanak will win if the Top drivers continue to fall, this is crazy but not good for the Title fight

It's simply unbelievable thing for JML. From now on how he can even think of winning the drivers title???
It will be interesting to see always optimistic Malcom Wilson reaction. Something like, we have the fastest drivers but they made small mistakes and NEXT time will be better. There is no NEXT time. It was one time chance and they managed to blow it.

If Loeb until now haven't realized, today he will understand that he has no competition at all except in Ogier for next year.

Oh dear, once again Latvala crashed and retires from yet another rally event. Can't understand the hate for Mikko, who was at least much more consistent. At this rate, it looks like another two-horse race between Mikko and Loeb.

As I have been trying to say for quite some time, Latvala has had his chance many times and blew it, eg he crashed a lot in 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 and now 2012 when will he ever learn? This forum was on fire giving out about Mikko whilst he was the one mainly always finishing the events even if they were not going his way hence his ability to challenge Loeb to the end in a slightly less reliable car. Remember his rally finishing streak a while back? ended in jordan. They should back Petter, at least he knows how to finish events a lot more than jml (apart from today).
I wonder what dafydd has to say, i doubt he will roll on about how great jml is. Uncomplete is the best word to describe this driver
