    Subaru team boss David Richards has hit out at the FIA and slammed the current tyre regulations after the shenanigans that severely disrupted day one of the Wales Rally GB.

    Richards believes that what happened on Friday was a travesty for the sport and the spectators. Indeed he is livid that the competitive mileage had to be cut by more than 50 per cent and all because competitors only had gravel tyres, while conditions were icy and snowy.

    Speaking at the end of the leg, DR added that the solution is obvious and he reiterated calls for an emergency tyre should conditions be abnormal.

    "It's been an extremely frustrating day. For some time now, after the introduction of the control tyre, we have said that there should be an emergency tyre available in the event of extreme conditions," he explained.

    "When conditions are like today, it should be at the discretion of the clerk-of-the-course to use them. We should not find ourselves in a situation where we are not able to deliver to spectators, who have had an even more frustrating day than us.

    "One of my guys drove down from Warwickshire at 6am today and hasn't seen a rally car in action. How can we turn round to the general public and say that it was too slippery for the best drivers in the world to perform? It makes a mockery of the whole sport.

    "We've repeatedly spoken to the FIA about this and we've been told it's too complicated to sort out. We don't accept this."

    SS19:Citroen number one driver Sebastien Loeb came through to snatch the win on the Rally GB on Sunday, the final round in the 2008 World Rally Championship.

    Loeb, who trailed Jari-Matti Latvala for most of the event, put in a charge this morning and despite picking up a 10 second penalty - for jumping the start prior to SS18 - he did enough to take the laurels, the very first time he has managed to do so in Wales.

    It was smiles all round for Citroen at the finish, as the French marque not only won and had two cars on the podium, with Dani Sordo third behind Latvala, but the 1-3 result was more than ample to ensure the squad took the manufacturers'.

    The BP Ford Abu Dhabi WRT meanwhile had to be content with the runners-up spot, both in Wales and in the manufacturers'.

    Further down the order, Petter Solberg came in fourth for Subaru, while Per-Gunnar Andersson was fifth followed by Francois Duval, Toni Gardemeister and Mikko Hirvonen.

    edit:
    Sebastien Loeb's winning margin on Wales Rally GB has grown to 12.7 seconds after his jump start penalty for SS18 was removed, organisers have confirmed.

    "Officials discovered a glitch in the timing system after reviewing all the times for the stage," read a statement to the press.

    "However, Loeb was unaware the penalty had been rescinded as he completed the rally's final stage [SS19], battling for the win with Jari-Matti Latvala."
    As a result, it is no longer the closest finish ever on Rally GB. That remains the 2004 edition, when Petter Solberg beat Loeb by 6.3 seconds.

    Probably tired of seeing Loeb win again so he/she folded up his/her tent and moved on.
    Whenever I think of the past, it brings back so many memories. - Steven Wright
