Yes believe it or not I am for real. To be consistantly in the top 5 times on a WRC event is impressive. It's a lot better than he has been doing. He was equalling or beating Sordo's times (who was in a similar position in terms of coming back in on Super rally. So think before just slagging someone off. This forum is becoming a bit like the F1 one, with people just having a go for the hell of it. Wilson is not as fast as Loeb. Great. But he is still doing pretty well and this performance showed he is capable of more. That's what I was saying. Not expecting a world championship out of him, just hoping he can go on and improve, show us what he really can do in the future. :)
