That's not fair at all. Ford were handed 5 min penality in portugal 2007 for a small glass thikness difference and now citroen are getting only 1 min penality? They should have been banned like Toyota in 1995 for the rest of the season and next year. Nassel Ali Attiyal was excluded in Greece for tech infringement also and he's fighting for PWRC. Inconsistent, unfair and unprofessional WRC Stewards...

Loeb is lucky - ford got 5 minutes in 2007, Sordo was excluded in 2006 Japan (forgot to fasten his seatbelt), a certain Makinen was excluded here in 2000 because of illegal turbo, Burns was excluded in Argentina 2002 because of an underweight flywheel (it was 20 gramms lighter than in the homologation), ford was excluded in 1999 Monte-Carlo (illegal water-pump), Peugeot was excluded in Cyprus 2004 (plastic water-pump instead of metal)... The judges kept Loeb's title chances alive!!!!!
