while the cars continue to stream through SS2, the leaders will enter SS3 from 10.18 local time. Like Santa Clara, Ourique (23.42km) runs through a valley and features a mix of fast, flowing roads and tighter, technical sections. The change in character makes it tough for drivers to settle into a comfortable driving rhythm. The surface is similar to Santa Clara as well, with a lot of gravel but plenty of abrasive bedrock showing through. This stage will be especially tough on tyres.

Wilson is near Latvala :blink: In my mind Kimi should go faster than Wilson and H. Solberg.

Didn't he say that the result is not important? ''hmm''

I think he didn't talk because
1. he doesn't like to talk to a reporter
2. he's focusing on the race

I bet Kimi will go faster in the afternoon. :O

yeah, and Ogier seems to be the next wdc material. Kimi is a talented guy but sometimes you´re not the best at things you really like. I like singing BUT I don´t believe I´m really good in it :lol:

I think that this Rally was always going to be very tough - it is a proper classic, and all the drivers ahead of Kimi will know it well.

I think he usually starts out a little steady, and it's usually on the second loop of stages were he can push a bit. That is sensible, you can't gain anything by binning it on the opening stage.

Oh, you judge him by just these rallies? I've said before that I don't think he could be WDC in rally too but I wouldn't say he's not good at it. Others have been doing it for years... and Kimi's already can go faster than some of them! :zz:

Agree with you, Kinga! He has talent and if he stays in WRC he will take the championship one day. People forget so easily that all the others have been rallying for years in national series etc. whereas Kimi jumped in as a real rookie. First time he drove the WRC-car was in January.

Read what for example Juha Kankkunen, 4-times champion in rally, has to say:

- Kimi drives excellently, hats off to him. Kimi's situation is exactly the same situation other extremely talented young drivers have: too much time and money is spent with current regulations so that they could get the experience they need. No matter how talented the driver is, he has to drive for a too long time before achieving enough of experience so that he can start challenging the lead.

- Kimi's decision to learn to drive with Loeb's setups was an extremely sensible and smart thing - because you don't get to test these days. And when Kimi doesn't even have any experience from a WRC-car it's important for him to concentrate only on the pace notes and driving and learn to drive with a car that can't have that bad setups.

Daniel Sordo has sometimes said that he would have to participate ten times in Finland's rally so that he would get the same experience from Jyväskylä's roads as Carlos Sainz got during his learning period in the 80's.

- It's a good comparison. Even top talented drivers in rally have too many years ahead of them before they get the same level of experience top drivers have. And this has to change, Juha Kankkunen says.

I said REALLY good, that means no.1. I don´t believe that he will ever walk out as a WDC and that should be his ultimative goal. Especially Ogier looks phenomenal. I´m proud what our Kimster does. He´s really incredible, but I don´t feel deep in my heart that he achieve his goal. I believe that he can win some "races" but that´s all. As long he has fun it´s okay. :O

Hey guys, it´s just a feeling, but you have to underwrite that this mission will be rally really tough, you know the others can still also develop but hey as long he´s happy, everything is fine :hug:
