Bit of a delay to things this morning, the fuel truck broke down. I hope that’s not a bad omen for everyone else!
*** SPOILER ***
Loeb fastest through SS2, despite having a bit of a spin at a hairpin. He’s now 8.3s behind Petter Solberg who leads. Petter has complained about a problem with some safety foam getting in the way of his foot pedals so he wasn’t able to push as much as he would have liked, the irony! M-Sport are having trouble already with damage to the right-rear for Novikov and a puncture for Tanak, which further damaged his car. Sordo is 4th for Ford at the moment. I can’t see him pushing very much at all this weekend.
It is good yep. I expected a stage to be dropped. Don’t know what’s going on with Solberg, I expect he’s still finding his feet with the car? It’s going to look bad if Sordo out scores Solberg, especially after Portugal.
