WRC 2010 Mexico

The strange thing about WRC Mexico was that, while Fords dominated the leader board, it was only from fourth place and lower. Citroen owned first through third for the entire rally. Ford's poor performance is baffling. It may (even Ford isn't sure) have been the car setup as they decided to copy Henning Solberg's on day two. Just to be clear: the works team used a customer team's setup. Like I said, very strange.

Loeb was seriously back on form and dominated the rally as the Ford team failed Hirvonen, who actually showed pace once the team copied the setup but it was too late. The real excitement came from the fight for second between Petter Solberg and Ogier. This battle was so close it came down to winning the last stage, a short super special. Super specials are always tricky things, epecially when you using the wrong tire! In the end it was Ogier who made a small mistake while Solberg kept it neat and tidy to snatch second. It was very exciting!
