    its very easy to grow as a driver when the car is crap... most drivers grow on crap cars but when they move on a competitive car from a piece of finnish garbage they usually become kids again....

    Meeke keeps making these surpise flashes of maturity every now and then. Usually when I finally have sense to leave him out of my pickems

    Well deserved. Hope he can take the confidence boost and get his bloody act together with it.
    Looks like he found a friend in Christophe Besse face, and things improve immediately in the team

    I know that Meeke can be fast here, but every time when I was that feeling and put him on no1 at pickems or other betting - he crash. Now I don't put him on any betting and a result - he didn't crash!
    And if we all know when Meeke didn't crash - he win But it could be more difficult in Wales to him.

    Most likely low traction,wet gravel and mud in Wales won't be C3's best friends.Hope it doesn't end in tears once again...

    Happy for Meeke and Citroën, they really needed a boost. Happy for M-Sport and I really really hope Ford marketing managers see that. Happy for Hänninen as well.

    Neuville again confirmes that inside his head he isn't a champion. He keeps defeating himself way too often. Overall another disaster for Hyundai.

    I still feel bitter for Kopecký. He won all 13 asphalt stages but all was ruined by stupid starting order into the first leg. On the other hand I am fully aware that Suninen drove as fast as he needed and I don't say that without the incident with Serderidis Kopecký would surely won. At least it would be decided by speed.
    Stupid is as stupid does. Forrest Gump

    Congratulations to Meeke and Citroen. Specially important for the future of the team.

    First incident-free rally of the season for him. Sure some might say there is no pressure on him now (without any other fast driver in the team on this rally and without any championship chances). But while that is true he still needs to drive faster than all others and win.

    For Citroen with the 3 tarmac rallies with 2 different drivers it confirms C3 pace on tarmac and there was also some speed on gravel, but that is hard to judge with road-cleaning and dry stable conditions.
    Troublesome that Lefevbre didn't repeat good pace from Poland without even short glimpses of speed. If they get a different Frenchmen to join them next year, his position is in trouble.

    Ford likely secured manu title and almost secured drivers title. Very good performance especially from Ogier on Friday. Ogier also had the longest stint of fastest stage times since Portugal or even earlier.

    Hyundai had another rally to forget. On Friday Mikkelsen confirmed he is fast, but Neuville struggled... then on tarmac it was the other way around. Decent pace from both Sordo and Neuville but the car looked really terrible in some turns on the TV stages even though the times were good. (Neuville handbraking where others turned just fine, some even without any understeer). They didn't had these issues in Corsica so I wonder if the pre-event changes to aero caused some of this. While the DNFs were due to hitting stuff, Fiestas survived same hits that the 2 Hyundais did not.

    Toyota actually had quite a bad rally, even without Lappis off. Sure some good times on smooth high-speed tarmac, but that wasn't much of a surprise after germany day 2/3. What was a negative surprise was the lack of pace on gravel on friday and again reliability issues.

    Kopecky lost 1:14 to Suninen on Terra Alta 1 where Serderidis' dust blocked him. On the morning loop he was losing about s/km to Suninen, so maybe he would have lost 39 seconds anyway? At the end of the rally Suninen was 31 seconds ahead, so it would have been tight without that incident.
