He only had to stay on the track to claim the lead, but he had to try too hard didn't he...

What a joke of a sport when someone gets points for coming 20 minutes behind the leader.

Loeb is one of the sports greats. If he has made a mistake that doesn't make him an idiot, rather more a human being. We ALL make mistakes.I wish it was him coming into GP racing next year, instead of Bordais!Seeing Bordais antics reminds me very much of the sort of "sportsmanship" tha thas dragged F1 down enough already.I hope I am mistaken in that too, and proves to be a credit to the sport.
Forget this - the bigger issue here is the lack of British talent on offer in the WRC these days in what are still mostly British teams - well the top ones. Great to see Young Wilson finally up there but as a Subaru fan when are the team going to wake up, get rid of Solberg & Atkinson who have been underperforming for years and get some up and coming British talent in the hot seat. Then I might care or at least have in interest in rallying again.
The idiot is the clown williamknox demonstrating that he has all the brains of a diseased earwig, his best effort being to make moronic and gratuitous jibes at the achievers of this world.
MJD555 wrote "Great to see Young Wilson finally up there" The problem is how many retirements did it take for him to break into the top 8?
Although a great result for Wilson, he was about 5-6 minutes behind the winner, and he only just beat Perez-Companc, who is no great shakes. Shows you the state of the WRC at the moment, not great. Agree with an earlier post about the lack of mileage nowadays,the sport needs more of an endurance element, rather than the current sprint.

Ignoring that silly statement, I think Mikko is showing some great performance lately. He did this is Norway previously where we won fair and square and where giants like Loeb and Gronholm have failed he's excelled. He'll definitely be the one to watch when Marcus retires end of the season..I agree on the lack of British rallying talent also, especially seeing as we have lost two of our only rally champions, Burnsy & McRae.
It keeps the title wide open with 2 rounds to go - it would be nice to see a title decided in Wales as far as I am concerned.
Clearly, you're the idiot !

"It will be a bit stupid in my situation to take lots of risks to try and win here," said Loeb on Thursday."I've not started a rally in this position before - normally when I start I want to go as fast as possible and go for the victory." "I don't need to push to the maximum," said Gronholm. "We just need to wait and see what happens to Sebastien."HAHAHA the two best drivers in rallying come out and back up what I said a month ago, and you lot will all hide away and deny it. Even when its there for all to see. Visit this link http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/motorsport/world_rally/7121793.stmand see who's feeling stupid now.This is about you being wrong, and me being right. Sorry, but I'm afraid its true.Blame a pace note if you want, just dig yourself deeper and deeper!LoL
