A small but interesting anecdote about friday morning tyre choice. As you know teams are spying on each other in order to know what choice is made by the other team. On Friday morning, Citroen went with 4 hard tyres and 2 soft spares. Ford went with 5 hard (4 mounted and only one spare to save the dreaded 22kgs) The proper choice was Citroen as they mounted the soft tyres only when it was needed) and it was needed only on one SS really. But the reason Ford mounted soft tyres, is that just one minute before leaving the parc , Loeb in a loud voice said to Hirvo and the engineers , Ok CHANGE of MIND .LET'S MOUNT THE SOFT. The spies ran to their team and mounted the soft, and Citroen mechanics mounted the HARD with some coloured adhesive onto the barcode tag. Clever acting I would say :-))
