Looks like you are having a conversation with yourself flying finn. It was an ok rally, the tension came from seeing if Ogier could hold on and he did. Very impressive indeed, soaking up all that pressure and still staying on the road. However dull the rallies can be, watching Loeb having to drive on the very limit (his facial expressions and body language behind the wheel change completely when he is trying very hard) is interesting.

Of course, the rest may not have seen which way Seb went had he not been road cleaning. How long has Sordo been a works driver without a win now?

Also, where have Ford's gravel pace gone?
