Ye Loeb is good I would even go to say he is very good but you have to look at the hole picture, he has only proved he can drive Citroen's cars designed for him to drive the team has always been about him, if any other driver got in a Citroen they could not get it to work is that coincident or not being French.

How many rally's have he won under team orders, every driver has had a moment when they say this is my limit any faster and that's it, when you put team orders into it you take the decision from the driver, as he doesn't have to set his limit they slowing down reducing the risk of crashing and damage to car, but when you are in the best rally car (That hurts say Citroen best. Road cars fall apart) and have team orders you don't have computation you have hollow wins.

Ford are closing the gap and have not been helped by driver choice in the past Hirvonen over P.Solberg when Subaru cut costs, Latvala is the man to beat in a level straight out fight then Ogier and than Loeb.
