As this all is so close already.. Here are my tippings.. I decide to try to play it safe now and thats why example leave Latvala a bit further because he has said to push for the win XD .. Then again there might be even snow so thats why Hirvonen is example that high XD. extra question is very harsh... :S
heh,on Ford´s GB testing photos you can see snowy ground and the air all over europe should be pretty cold at the weekend so atleast it should be a possibility what can lead to very muddy conditions atleast.
Here in Finland we already have a lot of it.. Its a bit like you would be watching Monte Carlo Rallye conditions out of your window. We got the first snows here in Finland at the start of October already... and them are mostly gone just at somewhere in March-early April if we have a normal winter.
Wow, what a rally it was. I was hoping so much for Petter to pass Loeb... I mean, come on, none of the Citro manufac. drivers could match Loeb nor Petter... and Seb didn't really need to win; he could of easily let Petter bag this one. Oh well, it is done. The 2010 season started on the bland side, but it warmed up as the events took place. A couple of surprises, at least for me, were: 1. Petter's ability to pressure manufac. teams. Who wouold of thought that a privateer would do so much damage! Good job! 2. Hirvonen? Was he in any of the events? Hmmpf, must of missed him. Yes, Mr. Hirvonen dropped fast off the charts this year; car problems? Personal problems? Who knows!! 3. Latvala picked up after Hirvonen's horrible season, but much does this grass-hopper need to learn. 4. Petit Seb... wow, what a guy! Fast learner, fast driver. Wonder how he will do in the new Citro. 5. Ken Block? Who? Oh! The guy that keeps on drifting into every single turn and not staying on the road long. Xgames is where he belongs... 6. Kimi...Kimi, Kimi... learning to drive rally is hard, from F1 to WRC is a big jump; he has the speed, just needs to glue the four tyres onto the road. 7. M. Wilson: Would you please give up!?! 8. Loeb: Wow! The champion of champions... doesn't it get boring for him to keep winning? Kind of got boring for me to see his name constantly in the lead. Superb driver, fantastic skills, happy for him to win the 2010 season (although I am happier to see Petter in 3rd over all) 9. Mixed surfaces were cool! All gravel were cool! All tarmac were cool! I liked the roads they drove through. Lovely places, awesome event hostings, great events over all. 10. Not sure about the French Rally event... kind of thought that it was done on purpose for Loeb only.. Not sure if switching from Corsica was a good idea. 11. No Monte Carlo?!?! What!?! Argh! 12. 2010 season showed how important it is to have other cars on the road other than Citro and Ford... Granted, the other cars weren't as fast or reliable... but 2010 could of been used by other manufactures to develop their own cars... VW could of tested the Golf or whatever, Proton should of done more, Mitsu should of had more than the Evo X. I think that other manufactures could of used the 2010 season as a "learning the ropes" season....
And finally, congratz to Mixa for winning the 2010 tippings!!! I was close my friend, very close! But, best man won. Congratz!!
