Nobody seems to get much of a chance anymore - Colin McCrae crashed the 'odd' time

Really feel for the guy. As already said, it's a crap car and Meeke gave it his best shot. Not even Loeb could make it work well.

Kris is a top bloke, he is on the limit like his mentor. Writing was on the wall though back end of last year when he had strong words with the team and they dropped him for expressing his opinion.

A brilliant driver once said "If in doubt, flat out"
