Loeb takes Jordan triumph

Patrik Flodin and Armindo Araujo came in eleventh and twelfth, with the former 33.1 seconds off Pons at the finish - and that final 'senior' WRC point. Flodin did take the P-WRC victory however, almost two minutes ahead of Araujo.

In terms of retirements, the biggest casualty was Mikko Hirvonen, who went out on day two in the opening test. He re-started on Saturday thanks to the SupeRally format and was eventually classified in 20th: "It was good to get back behind the wheel today and get some driving in before Turkey," said Hirvonen, who was gutted with his error in SS8 yesterday. "I definitely need to shape up for the next rally. There is still a long way to go though and I believe if everything goes well we still have a chance."

The 2010 World Rally Championship now continues in two weeks time with the Rally of Turkey running from April 16-18.

I have just read an interesting statement from Seb saying the drivers would like to see some form of qualifying for each event on the shake down. The article is on Autosport and makes perfect sense. I believe the drivers are sick of this as well, they just want to go flat out. In the same publication, the Ford team are taking a pop at Citroen for using tactics. Ford started the ball rolling a couple of seasons ago and in Jordan Citroen used Ogier to counter a move already made by Ford. Fords problem is that they are being outfought driver wise, car wise and now tactic wise. Stop whinging Ford and get a grip of your team.
