Solberg opts to run 14th in order

Starting order for day one in Mexico confirmed

Ford's Petter Solberg has chosen to run 14th in the order on the opening day of Rally Mexico.

Solberg got first pick of position after setting the best time in the qualifying stage, almost a second up on Sebastien Loeb [see separate story - here]. He opted for a position as far down the order as possible, usually best on a gravel event, as the road will have been swept clean.

The full starting order for the 14 priority seeded drivers is as follows, it will also apply to the short Guanajuato SSS tonight too:
