(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Hirvonen was promised opportunity to challenge Loeb without team orders. Try as he might, Loeb was still faster and won the event Mikko clearly wanted to claim as his own. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Jari-Matti Latvala
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Latvala tried but couldn't find the speed nor any explanation for the lack of it. Even tyre gazing didn't help. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
