    It won't be the car breaker it used to be, and probably no need for the beloved snorkels, but still, it'll be nice to see the beautiful scenery and whatnot.

    Still waiting to hear if they'll keep him for next season. If not, I'm sure he'll get a ride somewhere. I feel bad for Kris, but almost worse for Paul.

    There are other rallies I miss (New Zealand, Australia on ball bearings, Acropolis, Cyprus, etc...), but the Safari Rally is the one I miss the most. I really hope it does come back in some form!

    What an exciting start to the season, so much going on. The snow and the ice both shook things up. Congrats to Ogier, Tanak and Latvala for their podium places, to Kris for his power stage win and commiserations to Evans and Lappi in particular for just missing out at the end. I'm looking forward to seeing better from Breen too.

    Good job Ford, droping the money so Ogier stays in M-Sport. Christ, citroen is going to suffer. I just dont see loeb doing anything worthwhile. Maybe he'll help develop the car, but the 3 current drivers are just not consistant enough for any serious title contention.

    Suninen? I'm sure he'll be looking for a WRC drive and if Toyota are already full maybe he'll find a place with Malcolm.

    Eh Haenninen. I have nothing agains't him, but he knows getting a full WRC entry at his age and in this economy he can be glad he got that. Toyota's development season is done and now needs either winners and/or serious point scorers, which Lappi, Latvala and Tanak are.

    Congrats to Ogier, M-Sport and especially to Evans for the performance this weekend. Nice to hear the national anthem twice, not something I've heard in WRC for a long time, maybe not since Colin McRae.

    It's getting more and more clear Ford nad Hyundai are the cars to have this season. Citroen and Toyota are only fast if Latvala and Meeke have a good weekend.

    Four different manufacturer winners in the first four rallies of the season for the first time since 1986. Awesome! The end result may be roughly the same as usual, but it's nice to have variety along the way.
