    no because they had half minute difference,and Basso was taking it easy just to finish the rally.Of course as we have seen plenty of times,mistakes can happen even when going slow.


    Basso after stage 7 interview

    Basso: "everything ok, we are trying to go through the tests without taking risks, we have to understand how much we lose by driving without taking risks. Let's see"

    He must have realized that pace on SS7 wouldn’t have been enough.

    Amazing result from Huttunen, another tactical win this year!

    not enough 29 sec for 14 stage kms?
    at stage 7 Basso lost 14 sec at 14km stage.Difference was 29 sec starting stage 8
    He could afford to go even slower at stage 8 and 9 compared to stage 7.
    It wasnt Huttunes pace the problem.

    Basso was not interested in Huttunen as he was not scoring points to italian championship...

    In fact, Basso and Crugnola were completely different league and nobody was able to catch them. Then there were Rossetti and Scandola, fighting for third place. All of them made mistakes, so they didnt won. Huttunen was +- on speed of Rossetti and Scandola.

    One month later and nothing has changed. It is still Basso who leads the championship by 4 points:

    Congratulations to Huttunen! Good job.

    I remember the times when Italian drivers were called "tarmac specialists". Not anymore.
