I do think a win is possible as Greece is a place where you have to be a bit careful and its not necessarily flat out every where in order to win

In the past Petter has not had the budget to replace suspension at every service like you need to do in Greece, this is about 40 Grand alone per service x 5 services. Now the Team will just do that as standard

Im just worried about the Durability of the suspension arms and steering arms on the Fiesta, so far there have been breakages in places like Portugal and Argentina, Greece will make them look as smooth as a football field by comaparison

I cant believe this has still not been addressed by M-Sport, especially with Ford feeling like the may still pull out of the Sport with recent Performance results

I hate to say it but I think the Fords will be lucky to finish at all let alone on the podium. The cars are just too brittle and on a car breaker like Greece any weakness will be exploited.
