    Congrats to the whole M-sport team and drivers!!! What a season it has been for them, unbelievable, almost like a fairy tale or dreamlike. They took everything this year.

    And finally Dmack gets its win! They deserve it also so much.

    Now it would be perfect if Tšnak gets 2nd in the championship in australia but i think the gap to Neuville is too big. And it isnt that important actually.

    Fords pace yesterday was worrying, Ogier and Tšnak were clearly suffering and lacked pace when the conditions were more wet. If it was dryer then they were good. Toyotas were disappointing, they were so strong in the middle of the season on gravel but now in spain (gravel) and wales the speed hasnt been the best.

    Well, to be fair, Latvala retired on the third stage, and the only two Toyotas left were Hanninen and an inexperienced Lappi. I think their gravel pace in Spain was a huge what if. More worrying was their performance on low traction surfaces like Wales.

    Only did two days of the rally, but had a great time - the new cars even more impressive on gravel than they had been in Germany on asphalt. Now busy sorting through my photos, but here's one that I like from Friday.

    Huge congrats to Ogier/Ingrassia and MSport. The French is on a class of his own and Wilson totally deserves this year dream results. Fantastic rally from Evans and DMack. Amazing cars, epic fights, new winners; for once the FIA should be praised: ‘17 cars were the right bet. Hopefully 2018 will be even better!

    Paddon's words on FB "A difficult rally and one we will forget. But good to get a finish under the belt and some positives to take away from the weekend. Some things to improve and sort before Rally Australia so we can fully reset and start to find some form. Thanks for all your support. Big congrats also to Elfyn/Dan for their first win and Seb/Julian for wrapping up the title #paddonspack"

    Well done M-sport. They have received their share of shit here and elsewhere, but getting both championships as a semiprivate operation, deserves great applause.

    Toyota, what a poor performance. But it their first year, these things eventually hapoen, they will learn.

    I originally doubted Paddon as he never showed really great speed in lower classes. He almost proved me wrong, but this year has bern a bad one. Will he rise again?

    Neuville, this should have been his year, maybe next year? What will Ogier and Ford do?

    great for M-Sport but true is that without Ogier and with Tanak and Camilli they would be somewhere between Toyota and Citroen on manu leaderboard. that's how worth is 5 times champ
