Peugeot's Richard Burns has predicted that 'anything can still happen' in the battle for the 2003 World Rally drivers' title.

The Brit had a disastrous weekend in Spain, crashing out with only three stages to go while lying in sixth place overall. He now trails Sebastien Loeb and Carlos Sainz by five points.

Speaking to British newspaper, The Guardian, Burns said: "The result could have been a lot worse.

"It's just a shame Markko [Martin] didn't quite get Sebastien [Loeb and knock him down to third].

"Even if I win [in Britain], if one of the other guys finishes fourth or fifth it would be enough for them, but there are always a lot of retirements, so anything can happen."

Burns, who has 58 points, will be gunning for his second title in two weeks time, when Wales Rally GB gets underway on Thursday, 6th November.
