WRC Finland starts tonight with an extra Finn in the line up...

At the moment Kimi is 3rd, 0.1s off the lead, with the bottom 54 drivers having run the SS1

Too bad I'm away for the whole weekend :(
I'm not going to see any of those cool Live-coverages from the special stages.
But I'm still following the rally as widely as I can...

Oh, and Kimi finishes. There's still too long way to the points

Q: Kimi, firstly welcome to the WRC. We have seen you compete on events this year but what has made you decide to compete on a round of the World Rally Championship and what have you thought of the experience so far?
KR: The biggest decision was that I have the time now and I don’t have anything else to do this weekend.

Yea, he fall asleep at the start, lost a bit over a second because of that. Still, he did quite well against non-WRC cars considering there were people quite a bit more experienced than him in rally.

Thanks Az. Can you keep the coverage coming throughout the weekend? WRC in the UK sucks. We get 1 hr highlights (with adverts) on a digital channel on Sunday and most of the programme is taken up with a section where the presenter travels with a celeb guest

If Kimi didn't make a mistake at the start, he would be in front of his team mate, Alen :n
