    What's that fella doing over there? Making a living or something?
    He's been doing the official WEC Le Mans coverage for a few years - and why not? And there is no need to apologise for mentioning Le Mans....It's THE big one of the whole year.

    Kimi has done fastest SS-time and his best result is 6th. Im pretty sure that none of Rally World Champions will ever drive fastest lap time and 6th place from Grand Prix. That is something you should know.

    Kubica was very fast in a WRC car on tarmac too, but not very consistent.

    Quite a difference between WRC and F1 though really - WRC drivers are chasing seconds or tenths of seconds on real roads in all sorts of constantly changing conditions, F1 drivers are chasing hundredths of seconds around the same few smoothly surfaced corners over and over again in much more controlled circumstances.

    Impossible to compare WRC and F1.

    I'd like to see a few WRC drivers try another discipline; get them out of their comfort zone. One thing that Loeb can be praised for is not just sticking to rallying. Too few drivers try other disciplines.

    Kimi Raikkonen did one fastest time in his whole career, the final SSS in Rally Deutschland. This was in the days that were only 4 works cars for Ford and Citron and Raikkonen still did not finish best of the rest even once. To compare with another rally-superstar: Martin Prokop has 3 stagewins and a best result of 4th.

    Sebastien Loeb finished second in Le Mans in a car that has similar performance to an F1 car. Only two current F1 drivers did better at Le Mans. Had he driven F1 in his prime Loeb would not have embarrased himself.

    This is the same as guessing how good a swimmer would be at tennis... Completely useless!

    Why? What whim would it satisfy? How do you know they haven't? How you going to force them>
    Personally I have never been interested in watching or doing anything on asphalt..Ever..
    I did enduros, then years of moto-cross all over the world....then enduros again....then gravel rally..

    As far as i can tell I would not like the participants of most asphalt stuff, and definitely not like the fans.
    Why would I want to something?
    Likewise why would "the Dubya Arsey guys"?
