WRC » Petter Solberg confirms plans for 2013


Petter Solberg: Rallycross is a place where I can be myself. Once again I can work closely with my sponsors, be very close to the fans, have my own team of qualified people, and be my own boss. It is a great mix...

I wish him all the very best of Luck, this Guy has a Huge heart for Motorsport, he will have lots of fun doing what his Heart desires and as he siad, he will enjoy being his own Boss again and working with his Sponsors closely.

I think this would be any Guys Dream, he has Impressive Facilities at Home, Big enough to House a Full size Articulated Race Truck Indoors and all his Cars and Buggies etc, a proper Boys Toys Aladins Cave ! or Hanger morelike. I look forward to seeing him Returning to Winning Ways

Because Ford has produced so many championships in the last decade. I'd say the team had a lot to do with his lack of success. An uncompetitive car and badly managed team.

Im happy for Petter but Im sure in his heart of hearts he would prefer to be in WRC. Something seriously isnt right, the fact that 'there is no seat' and why Red Bull isnt backing him is equally puzzling. Red Bull are everywhere, even with people we have never heard of. A very sad state of affairs indeed with Petter.

Screw you naysayers, you dont know what you're talking about. Sure he didnt get great results last year, but this guy is a HUGE loss to the WRC.
Im going to miss seeing actual emotion on a WRC driver, now the only driver left with any kind of external personality is Latvala.
Im going to miss seeing Solberg in the WRC and will eagerly be following him wherever he goes.

This good news, now I can see Petter on T.V! He will defeat the likes of Pestrana, Block, Faust, et al!

By the way, I wonder if Gronholm is in Rallycross this season and how he is feeling in general after suffering a concussion last year...
