Q&A: Marc van Dalen - EXCLUSIVE.

The only way for us is to fight like hell to be as close as possible to first place. This is all that we want to do and from the beginning of the season that is all that we wanted to do. But there is a gap between what you are able to do and what you want to do – that is rallying. OK we are pushing to improve and work like Germany and like Finland. I think it is important for all of us and OMV.

Q:
Final question, at the moment it is a very close in the battle for the drivers' title. Who would you tip to take it - Marcus Gronholm or Sebastien Loeb?

MvD:
My heart is for Seb, because he was my driver last year. I hope we can help him also with my cars [and take points off the Fords]. At the moment however, currently I believe it is a 60 per cent chance for Marcus - and 40 per cent chance for Seb.
