WTF?! I mean, seriously... wtf? We all have Raikkonen on our tipping. I think that the next "extra question" should be: Will Raikkonen make it through day 1? I know he is a far better driver than I am, but still, there is no excuse for this... Argh!
Yeah, very cheap mistake from Kimi. This was kinda the rally also where he really would have had a change,specially at the asphalt days but then again, he still has a lot to learn. His pace also in my mind hasn´t really improved... somehow I find him to be stuck a bit behind Wilson.. even when he mostly does same times or is even quicker .
What comes to day1,you can really see how Loeb was pushing... few gone offs were so close. Ogier also superb as always and JML clearly the fastest Ford,even when had moments. Also as in France,the ones behind suffered a lot for gravel on the road. Bring on day2!
ps. those who follow the rally,JWRC title fight is also getting quite tight . Still Weijs needs kinda a bit of luck to take the title.
Yeah same here.. my pickems are quite awful now . It was still quite a nice day.. Ogier had a goneoff and totally his own fault.. the car back end was just lost while a double left hander and thats it. Latvala complaining to his setups as usual, Hirvonen hitting to trouble and so on . Also Ken Block had an off once more but man,from the video´s you can see why he loses so much time XD . He is basically just drifting the corners like he would be driving a gr.A car at tarmac XD .
Such a shame about the junior fight. Burkart lost the car and ended up off road knocking the front wheel off what I heard and day was there. Weijs is now a pretty sure champion. Also once more Citroen seems to take the title for Suzuki.
