I think Jari Ketomaa is worth a top drive next year - consistently quick driver in wrc2 - and he's finnish so he's going to be proper quick Smile

Wilson down the pecking order. I hope Hirvonen finishes 3rd on his last rally.

Matt Wilson is 5th in class WRC2 after ss10 not bad I would say for first drive in a few years

Latvala dropped 3 mins - under 5 secs between 2nd and 4th. Ogier in different league. Dont normally wish bad luck on anyone but with the championship sewn up id love for something not too serious to happen and meeke or hirvonen to snatch a fairytale victory

It's very easy to forget we are talking about a world sport so any criticism is relative ie mathew wilson is 15th in the world. But despite  being v good he is not in the class of the top echelon - sainz, mcrae, ogier, loeb. We are talking seconds but....

What happened to Meeke on ss22? Dropped a shed load of time. Hirvonen looking solid in 2nd. (fatal last words)

paul....

He completes 51sec slower than Latvala with his Citroen's right-rear tyre damaged. "Yup, that's the way it is," he says. Sounds like the damage is a legacy of his earlier trip into a ditch. Meeke slips to fifth. Hirvonen backed off near the end.

He started the stage with a punctured right rear tyre and he loses 43sec to the leaders as he nurses the DS3 through. "It's okay, but we need to keep a good tyre for the road section. We'll be okay." And his chances of a drive next year? "If I do get another seat I'll need to stop making silly mistakes." Looks like sixth for Meeke.
