Wow, in all fairness thats the Jari Matti we all know and Love to see, where did he get that speed from ? Myherin was one of my favorites too and I can understand why he loves this stage

Interestingly Loeb said he was having trouble keeping the car on the stage, looking at the early splits in Dyfnant he is pushing very hard, If he goes off Mikko will be told to take it easy, this would probably result in a 1,2,3 for Ford if Ostberg can keep 3rd too

I see Hapless has entered the fray exactly where he left off, after 4 stages, 2mins 16sec from the lead and down in 9th. Great stuff. Continuing the great British summer of sport.

Loeb is taking it easy. He's only saying he can't beat the Fords in Wales because he wants to win the title in France. Again. He done the exact same thing in Japan in 2010. He could easily have beaten Ogier, but he chose not to. Latvala is fast, but if Loeb was up for the fight then there's no way Jari-Matti would be leading. He'd panic and crash out, as he usually does.
