Fingers crossed !

Lets hope he can get a really Good Result here.

He needs to get to the finish no matter what, but he also needs at least 3rd or 4th to justify Citroens decision to replace Sordo, after all he was chosen because of his speed on gravel, and in Citroens eyes this translates into extra points - which they need badly

If he can get a better result than what Citroen would of expected from Sordo and mikko happens to take a win then maybe Meeke will once again be chosen over Sordo for GB if its still close in the Manufacturer Race

If, if, if, if,if - by some miracle Citroen does beat VW in the 2013 Title fight this could then lead to a Full time seat for Meeke in 2014 alongside Mikko, Mikko wont be going anywhere next year !

@Dafydd

Totally agree. He's got to deliver a strong finish, no doubt about the speed.

Saw him on the McRae stages back in 2008 (I think) in that yellow Mk2 escort, absolutely mental. Never seen a Mk2 going that quickly.

Had my 1st taste of rally co-driving last month an an Evo9 (car runs in the Scottish rally championship). Co-driving is a lot more difficult than I thought and the speed (launch especially) took some getting used to but I loved every minute.
