Nah, if not the power steering problems yesterday Petter would have been 3rd today.
I know that it was his mistake from friday that cost him victory, but the saturday+sunday pursuit was brilliant.

Gratz to Mikko :)

There is lot of if - if Novokov didn't have throttle problems also he could still be 3rd, if JML didn't have Fuel pressure problems, he could take 4th, and so on. Anyway 4th was Solberg's goal and he did it.

Novikov probably deserves some place on the podium this year, he'd done remarkable times when everyone else were struggling Friday.

Congratulations to all of them and Ostberg and JML, the latter achieved Rally finish - this is some progress and scored some points.

Hirvonen has now been excluded due to clutch irregularities. Mads Ostberg declared winner, Novikov second & Petter third.

Petter could well have won this event by well over 2 mins if he didn't crash!
