Aah yes, Hinesight !

Petter wasnt to know that Loeb was about to get a punture though

A win for him is surely getting closer and closer

Im sure he is going to win very soon

He is driving faster and faster and is starting to regularly beat the others in straight fights again

I remember when he won the Title on Wales Rally GB in 2003, it was between him and Loeb and if i recall he turned up the wick to take 7 seconds out of Loeb on the last stage to beat him and win the Title

This is the old Petter coming back, watch out Guys, hes getting excited again and confident again !

Good on you for pushing Petter and going for the win. Thats what us fans want to see, a close fight right til the end.

You have had a bad run of luck, lets hope the tides will turn. You have the pace.

Crashes happen, nothing unusual, better luck for Ford in the second part of the season! I think their chances in New Zealand and Finland are really good, there are very fast and smooth surfaces.

Every time is 'better luck on the next rally'. They can't perform a single rally without any problems. And for that reason Loeb has more points than Latvala and Solberg together.

Loeb was ordered to slow down as Citroen wanted manufacturer points. Was not until the last min that they said go and fight for dwc but it was a bit too late. Loeb would have won in 2003. If you guys recall Hollywood made a claim that he would not cut his hair till he beat Loeb .... By now he would have the record for longest hair in the world lol. Love Hollywood and he has the worst luck of them all.

Hi Petter! We were all up on our heels every time you passed in front of us last weekend! you must know that you are one of the most loved drivers for years here in Greece & we were very disappointed when you went off on Sunday as we were hoping you' ll win the Acropolis. Anyway, I' m sure that you will do your best on the next rounds. Very best of luck!

Its just sour grapes on all these guys part(s). They should all know by now that to win, first you have to finish. This is why Loeb wins all the time. Unless these guys get this message, Loeb has the 2012 WRC handed to him on a plate.

I can pretty well understand Ford drivers pushing that hard and making little mistakes which costs them lot. With Hirvonen being constantly scorer, the only way Ford to win this championship is they make sure Loeb finishes behind them. Well that is not easy though...
