but how is Kimi 6th overall if he has been 5th, 5th and 4th, always ahead of the Ford drivers? or am I missing something :blush:

He's fourth overall but Mikko and Jari-Mari could catch up. Something went wrong with Ogier so he's up a notch for now.

He lost to two Ford drivers in SS3 and they almost got him in overall standings, his 4th position is at immediate threat from Miko.

About that tire thing - I didn't get it as I don't know the tire regulations in WRC. How will he benefit from choosing soft tires in SS3 in case if it rains in SS4?

Ilta-Sanomat:

SS3

Kimi Räikkönen did the 6th best time - with soft tyres.

The formula champ took a big risk when leaving for SS3 with soft tyres whereas others trusted on a harder compound. That might be the reason why Räikkönen tried to save his tyres and got behind Hirvo and Jari-Mari.

Räikkönen is gambling since rain has been predicted for SS4. If it doesn't, then Räikkönen's tyres might wore out too much.
To be changed soon - rko281, where are you??? LOL

because there is no service between ss3 and ss4 ... he has to do the two stages with the same settings ?
