    and on day 2? 5th fastest, losing 30 seconds to everyone besides loeb. even without his offs, he still lost 14 seconds to gronholm.

    his times on day 2 were clearly slower than those on day 1 and 3. coincidentally he was slower when he was a threat to loeb, and faster when loeb was uncatchable and he was a threat to loebs challenger gronholm.

    i could very well be coincidence, but as mintexmemory said, similar story's are being told about sordo, ogier and solberg.
    Man, you're really thinking that a legend who won 9 championships straight needed help to beat Duval? Are you really serious about this?

    Not "just" Duval... but Duval who was without a drive for 8 months... while driving an old Xsara vs the C4 of Loeb. I mean, he did a pretty great rally, but let's remember he managed to win only 1 WRC event in his career (Australia, because every fast driver retired) after years in works teams, because of his many mistakes.

    Revisionism is trending right now ! What is this strange disease that grips you, which consists in wanting to constantly rewrite history every time it doesn't suit you?

    Dude, Duval got beaten by Märtin almost every round as well and Ford surely didn't have the luxury to sabotage their second driver at the time.

    pardon me if it has been said here already, but i foresee that the 3 outings Loeb will do this season will provide answers to the question... positive or negative.

    I don't think so... maybe it's just me, but I don't have high expectations on Loeb for these 3 rallies. He has retired in 2012, I see him struggle to get a podium in these events, let alone a win. It doesn't make much sense to rate a driver based on few events he'll compete 6 years after he retired.
