Really pleased that J-M L made it. Great start to the season for him and Toyota. Neuville does seem to have the pace though and has had 2 unfortunate incidents really and paid a price he didn't really deserve. Tough couple of rallies for Meeke in a car that looks like a contender.

At last Neuville's speed has been rewarded. Should have been 3 this year really. I still think Meeke has a real chance this year as his car appears to be the one to have (just) and he is driving well (if we forget about his trip through the car park at the last rally) -he was unfortunate with reliability this time though.
It's odd how some very talented drivers have had difficulties this year. Hanninen in the Toyota has had a bit of a shocker!

Yeah bad luck for Meeke alright, at least this time it was mechanical, a small consolation. I'm impressed by Breen also, especially considering his lack of WRC experience.

You are right. It is easy to overlook Breen, he just goes about the job without a lot of fuss and doesn't make a lot of mistakes. Even though he has a great car, he is mixing it with much more experienced drivers. It's early days but he could have a bright future in the sport!

Meeke taking a break from this event after his recent run of bad luck on the last few rallies.
