So dissapointed on M-sport. They had a great start of the season, now seems they are just recycling old parts and all cars fail at some point.

I see lots of rain, cold front moving in. Not looking good for Ott.

Well I can see why Breen is struggling here, his pace was okay until he hit that rock in stage 7(?) and once he lost that 10 seconds, he's trying so hard to catch that time back, he just needs to reset and start fresh for tomorrow. Besides imho the fact that he needs to lead the team for the first time in his career amounts a lot of pressure, and the overall line-up at M-Sport can't help. He needs someone to challenge him, to make him strive for better results, and atm only Loeb is there but he's on a pensioner's slot so...I honestly hope M-Sport will manage to sign a top driver for next season whilst their car is still (relatively) competitive.

Finishing is everything for M-Sport, there's no title fight for anybody. If his team mates can't finish that's not his problem so that's why I don't agree with the team-leader label.

Craig is hardly struggling whilst being under the biggest pressure to bring it home. If he finishes on +0.3s/k it'll be his second best result of the season after Sardinia so at these speeds I wouldn't be surprised if he's asked to curb his enthusiasm tbh. Still another day tomorrow, long way to go and all that.

Wrong already. We are at Paijala and yr.no showed that it should start rain here at 3 am and basically non stop till the evening. It’s bone dry

Breen is doing ok here, before the hit it was pretty much exactly same as last year in a Hyundai. Not a championship or even rally-winning speed though. (*wink to Breen WDC predictions)

3AM? I'm talking about precipitation during rally. There will be huge downpours today on stages. Look how how yesterday was and todays Will be a lot colder. Perfect conditions for thunderstorms. If you wont believe me, believe bluuford.

So if it rains that might give the edge to Kalle again.
