News coming in are that Loeb crashed with another car. No indications if it was another rally car or a civilian.

It looks well for him, he has 3 minutes advantage on Ostberg.

Henning is in the podium at the moment :p

The other time he crashed frontal with Conrad Rautenbach. Loeb was going away from a stage and Rautenbach was heading towards it. Citroën lost 2 cars in an instant :lol:

-------------------------------
The co-driver of Sepp Wiegand doesn't feel well and the paramedics are looking at him at the end of SS18 :blink: Hope he is ok :confused:

We can confirm Sebastien's had an accident on the road," he said. "A European spectator was on the wrong side of the road. Sebastien and Daniel are okay but they are out of the event.

European? Hmm, I thought the Brits are also Europeans? :zz:
So, it was somebody driving on the right side of the road what caused the accident.

Kind of a shame that Mikko couldn't restart :confused:

Colin says some of the access roads are very narrow

Listening to Colin talking about the agreement between Ford and M-sport not beign signed yet, I remembered somethng I read earlier today.

It seems, Ford/M-sport will lose the Abu Dhabi sponsorship.
Problems and more problems for the championship :(

:( if there will be no Ford and Mini not doing whole season.. what's the point of the championship then? :(
I thought it would get better with more manufacturers and not worse...

too bad about Loeb.. but I like the podium atm :)

If I got it right (really, automatic translations from Finnish are horrible), Loeb crashed with a friend of Dani Sordo :lol:

Spaniards! :roll::
