Hey ! come on, lets not bash Jarri-Matti

I am excited that Ford were able to get Sordo into their car as a one off, they probably paid Prodrive a small fee but that is money well needed by Prodrive

He stunned with his pace in Portugal and deserves to get this drive, I know i havnt said great things about him in the past but how can you deny his drive in Portugal was anything but Stunning

With any luck Petter can get a win in Argentina and Sordo can get on the Podium for Ford, Im sure he will adapt quickly to the Fiesta and be quick right away

Well, with JML absence, it surely won't be the fastest Rally, but lets hope Sordo will make a podium here. Getting use with the car shouldn't be a problem as it wasn't for Solberg.

But who knows, may be Solberg will show his best times... Hope so.

That hasn't happened for last 2 years, I guess that's why he was replaced by Ogier in 2011, besides the latter is French, but shows good paces with Mini (when they compete), lets see how he will handle it, but I guess podium will be equal to win.

Sordo WAS good enough for Citroen...he just wasn't good enough for Quesnel!

I'd say Dani will do well enough in Argentina. He always has done in the past anyway. But rallying be what it is, there's no way Sordo will be allowed to take the win if both and Petter are in the running for it.
