Fantastic result...you have to be kidding.

He'll be battling with Matty Wilson, if he beats him I guess you'll say it's a fantastic result. How standards have slipped in the WRC outside the top 4.

Man there are some nay sayers out there. Chris got a fifth place in a car he'd never driven before, in his first tarmac rally in four years and its still not good enough! What would he have to do to impress you? Beat Leob with the transmission jammed in reverse maybe! Good luck Atko and welcome back.

We can't expect miracles from him in the weakest WRC team right now. In Germany he did good and consistent Rally unlike Finland where he was flying in the skyes (and trees). Of course we can expect little better results on the gravel in GB.

Level has dropped? Sure, you may think that, but for a guy who has just jumped back into a WRC car after a spell to be running 2% behind some stages of an 8 time and soon to be 9 Time World Champion is pretty damn good i think! I appreciate all the drivers and their efforts who risk a lot to keep me entertained. All the best ATKO, we will be chearing you on via WRC Radio!

He'll have to do more than that. Most previous outings have ended in a massive shunt but if trundling around to a marvelous 5th while beating a bunch of pay drivers and an R&D VW then bravo, I applaud loudly and freely.

He did have some good runs in the Subaru back when they were a works entry but he isn't a top line driver, end of, more about Henning Solberg's level.

No, I'm not disputing that at all, I just don't a 5th place 9 minutes of the lead was a good result, just my opinion.
