What a confidence boster for JML. and then to cap it off with power stage points to really stuff it to his arrogant team mate. Well done Jari.

You always get the sense when JML is in a good positon that he will make a mistake but this was a mature drive. Lets hope it continues. Realisticaly, he is the only person who has a chance of competeing with Oigier.

Hirvonen seems to have lost a few seconds. Neuville will make the odd crash trying to get the speed out of a Hyundai that doesnt seem the finished article yet. The other drivers are also rans with a couple of them who will pick up a good result now and then.

VW are streets ahead. Citroen have a good car but will steadily move away from rallying. M Sport dont have the funds to compete right at the top and I fear Hyundai will be like their last time in WRC. Just not fast enough. I hope I am proved wrong about Hyundai though.
