And just like Hartusvuori said, the question was that has Mikko taken any progress since Gr÷nholm retired and answer to that is pretty clear, yes, he has. But is he good enough now? No, he's not. I didn't have Finnish hat on, because I'm not Mikko's fan and lately that feeling has only strenghtened.Satakymppi, oikee yks --- rallisport.net - vauhtimedia

Unbelievable what Neuville did there, beating Juho on a mixed stage is kinda superb with a guy who has like seven gravel rallies done. If Peugeot Belux doesn't give him the chance for next year in IRC then there'll be a riot . But Neuville already said, sometime ago that last year was getting experience, this year was taking the level higher and get a win , succeeded very well 2 wins in 2 very classical rallies and then finishing the season with winning Golden Stage ! Next year it would be going full for the title and that's totally what they've to do!
Unbelievable Mikkelsen failing after a few turns in MC Neuville also an off on SS1 in MC and both are now with Hanninen the 3 guys who mostly colored the IRC championship!

Regarding Kopecky's alledged bitterness to Mikkelsen, if you have seen the podium celebrations on the Eurosport review programme I don't think you would still think that. I don't think Jan was saying Andreas was lucky to win the last 2 rallies, just that he was lucky with the points co-efficients (which is kind of true) For the record I think Andreas is far more champion material than Kopecky, even if I thought Andreas should have been battling for the title next year rather than this one!

Ofcourse you need some luck, always. Neuville was lucky to win Golden stage rally and not to damage his car. He was out of road once and once hit a bank pretty hard.. he was lucky to escape from his mistakes here. At the same time he retired in Monte, because he hit the bank. Not so lucky and no escape there. Those are lucky escapes in my view.
Unlucky are those who hit the Kangaroo who is running 50 km/h and you have less than 0.1 sec to react (which is impossible). You hit a cow who is behind blind crest or you hit another car which is crashed behind blind corner or crashed driver puts the triangle to the wrong place and forces you to take not so safe route or you get a puncture because of single nail that was on the road surface, or you hit crashed car in a snow rally on a narrow and fast section (Like Rovanpera did in Sweden). Those whoe have many such incidents might be considered pretty unlycky indeed :-)Colins Crest = M÷ldri Mńtas

This's all disaster with points rule I think. Kopecky lost everything in last 2 rallies.PLEASE HELP ABOUT MC 2014 DRIVE:
