Red face 2010 WRC Season starts off in Sweden!

Yeehaw!
200kph on ICE!

The first stage of the first round of WRC season 2010 starts today in ICE-y Sweden.
This year, there are 5 teams with just the two constructors, Citroen and Ford.
Also, two of the rookies for this year are sensations already.
One is the 2007 F1 World Champions who's traded his Ferrari F1 car for a Citroen rally car.
And the other is the Youtube Celebrity Ken Block who's racing in a Rally 2000 Fiesta.

A quick recap of the 2009 season for those of you who missed it:


And a few pictures from the previous seasons in Sweden.

The Small Tyres help in compacting snow so they have proper grip on snow and ice.

Do ask if you have any more questions too.

I just finished watching 3 hours of this rally along with the 2010 preview.

Highlights:
1. Loeb got beaten by 42.3 seconds!
2. 2009's runner up by 1 point, Mikko Hirvonnen lead the rally right from day1.
3. Ford's #2(officially) Jari Matti Latvala takes the final podium spot.
4. Ford's whooped Citroen big time.
5. Kimi's nowhere in the top 8 since day1. (afterall the target was to just complete). I'm expecting him to beat the rally guys on tarmac. Lets see.
6. Marcus Gronholm makes a guest appearance for the season and takes a stage win too.

Rally de Mexico's next. (What a contrast from Icy sweden ) March 5-7
