Yep. Agree with Andrew. Only a formality this year till one of the Sebs (probably Loeb hopefully Ogier) wraps up the championship. Been a poor year for ford thus far. Can't see it getting better. Hopefully Latvala will go balls out in Wales.

Sorry Dafydd, you're kidding yourself if you think Hirvonen has a chance of the title this year.

Also they should have let Latvala win, he is more deserving and it not like Hirvonen will benefit from the extra points.

I feel a bit sad for Jari that he swapped position with Mikko as its one less win for him on his CV but at least he was more than willing to help his team mate unlike in the Citroen team

I also am a bit sad that Mikko didnt go all out to win the Power stage, risking crashing was the price to pay but 11 points short is better than 15 if he had won the power stage and demoted Seb to 2nd and just 2 extra points to go with his 1 WRC point for finishing 10th

11 points is a lot more doo able if Ford can unlock some extra Tarmac pace in France and Spain, but with 15 they may as well of kept Jari on for the win

Of course Seb Loeb will now step up a gear and go Harry Flatters so Mikko may only benefit if once again Seb goes looking for Blackberrys, which is more likely if he is under pressure to hold everyone off

At least I will get to see a Huge fight in Spain and possibly even GB too if Seb has any slip ups in France/Spain
