The joke get better and better! However bad it is (team orders, Loeb winning again etc) try and look on the ridiculous side of it and make jokes of it.

Could also encourage Crash.net to complain to FIA or whoever's responsible for this stupid 'sport'

To all the whiners here: forget about SPORT, you don't seem to realize, but what you want is SHOW-BUSINESS.

And there happens to be something out there for you: it's called NASCAR. So please just head there and leave motorsport alone!!!

Oh look, another one of Loeb's blind fanboys.

The shape of the WRC is getting worse and worse, with many fo the sports best drivers either dead or retired. God, if only McRae and Burns were still around! Someone who can challenge the bland boring Frenchman. Life is cruel.

Loeb is the most talented rally driver of all times. It's not his fault that no one can beat him. Many drivers have tried but none has succeeded yet. Maybe Ogier next year. Latvalas pace maybe is result of lack of motivation if he is moving to VW next year.

I'm not fan of Citroen and Loeb, but must admit he well deserves this one, as many others. Ford just lost the game with it's aproach, besides Latvalla's misfortune again, Hirvonen also hadn't chance with it's tyre wearing.

In fairness, there mightn't be this fuss over team orders if Latvala and Ford could get their act together and force Citroen to push. I hope they don't go to IRC in 2014 as has been threatened, and we need Volkswagen and Mini to push forward. I have high hopes for VW in particular, and I think there is still potential for this sport if we can get these four manufacturers competing at the sharp end.

Toyota is coming as well, so I guess WRC's future isn't that bleak.

Oh, and BTW Loeb beat Mc Rae and Sainz when they were there.

Seb is just great and don't worry, he'll retire in style (growing speculations that it will be at the end of this year).

Mikko's career plan isn't that bad after all...

I reckon Loeb is either going to try for 10 titles. Or 100 wins (or both), and then he will retire.

And in my opinion, despite what all the old rally fans think (and despite all the disagrees this comment will probably get), its not that there is a lack of talent these days, its just that Loeb is the best there ever was. Put him up against all the old greats in what alot of people think was the golden era, and he still would have beaten them all.
