Thumbs up Ford's success in WRC

BP Ford has had a very good time so far in this year's WRC, and an especially good season for Marcus Gronholm . they arent allowing Citreon and Sebastian Leob to runaway and have left both the cunstructors and the drivers championship wide open, and a contest that could turnout to be more xciting than Fonsi vs Schumi vs Kimi.
p.s.: Peter Solberg has signed a new contract to stay with Subaru till 2009.

Indeed, Gronholm's dominating victory in Greece was awesome (though Solberg if my fav, but I still adore Loeb).

If Ford pull up their socks, it may be a different story at the end of the year, with Gronholm's Finland rally still to come.

P.S. Just wish Gronhilm would stop complaining so much. Look at Solberg's luck, and he does not cry 25% as much as Gronholm, who blames the car even for his mistakes...ha ha!

Hey, Well its a one off victory for Gronholm .. but the eventual winner is still gonna be Loeb !!! He's too smooth with his driving style and one loss doesn't reflect on Ford being back in contention from any angle ...

GO SEBASTIEN GO !!!

Cheers
