    Will Pontus be able to take the win in Portugal, he is eating seconds all the time, but will it be enough?

    C3 is working well also on gravel, good for the R5 market, and diversity!

    New Citroen seems to be a good car and absolutely definitely better than the old PSA R5s, however the only conclusion i think we can draw from Portugal is that Michelin need to work on the durability of their R5 tyre.

    Nordgren has had four punctures in the rally, one each wheel. He claims it hasn't been because of going wide or cutting too much

    I would say the cars and suspensions are just progressing faster than tyres, which in turn become the weakest link on the pace the drivers are able to keep on the rough roads.
