    Yes, another skilfully nuanced drive from Ogier.
    i was interested to note that commentators were suggesting the crucial moment was the stages on day2 where Ogier had 4 softs and Latvala had 3 softs/1 hard (i think that was it). noone seemed to think that maybe Ogier just outdrove Latvala on those stages, yet Ogier is plainly a person who carefully manages risk and will, and can, push just enough to keep ahead. unfortunately for Latvala he is either 100% or having a bad hair day.

    I still just cant believe that Latvala crashed in Germany! he could have dropped seconds a km to the next best, with Ogier completely out, and he pushed too hard and crashed in the day. he must have spent days in a foetal position at home after that. any case, it just shows that he lacks the subtlety of an Ogier or Loeb, even though he needs that if he wants to be title contender, as i reckon he is about 96% as good as Ogier as a driver.

    anyway, let the best man win!

    pity about Meeke. i didnt see footage of what he did on that corner, but sounds like he gained nothing from it and it was just a momentary lapse of judgement. despite that losing him a podium, i reckon he will be very pleased indeed to have not crashed his car, and come 3rd in spirit.

    i also note that WRC is trying to milk Kubica's presence and headline value for all it is worth (understandable and totally ok of course), even though by any measure, Kubica has been a total failure this year. he just cant stop crashing his car, and is way off the pace when he doesnt. which is remarkable given that he thrashed the opposition in WRC2 last year. i wonder why he has found it so hard to transition?
