    I think if he is going to loose, it will be the car that lets him down rather than someone driving better than him. Both highly unlikely.

    On a side note, Until someone else wins I've stopped downloading the rallies. They all look the same except for different scenery.

    Jari-Matti Latvala has secured the early lead on Rally d'Italia Sardegna after setting the pace on two of the opening three stages on the Mediterranean island.

    Benefitting from his position on the road, the BP Ford Abu Dhabi driver set the pace on the opening test of the morning and then repeated the feat on the final stage of the loop to return to service with a lead of 14.6secs at the head of the field.

    “Our times have been getting better, so it's looking quite good,” he said. “I'm not totally happy with the set-up yet, so we'll be looking at that back in service.”

    Latvala's lead is over Sebastien Loeb, who moved up to second on the final stage of the morning ahead of the second Ford of Mikko Hirvonen, with the Frenchman admitting he was doing everything he could to stay in touch out front having been forced to act as road-sweeper during the morning.

    Hirvonen had been due to start the event running third on the road, but ended up running second behind Loeb after Dani Sordo was late starting stage one – incurring a 30 second penalty and dropping behind Hirvonen in the running order. Sordo claimed that the issue was down to the turbo on his C4 WRC although he was still able to go on and post the third quickest time on SS1 and went quickest on SS2.

    “It looks like Citroen are doing the same trick as they did in New Zealand last year,” Hirvonen said during the morning, “but that's the name of the game I suppose.”

    The repeat run over the flowing Crastazza stage completed the six-stage schedule of Rally Sardinia's opening day, and Jari-Matti Latvala held the lead while teammate Mikko Hirvonen was truly frustrated with his own performance.

    The name of the game at this point is to avoid being the first car on the road tomorrow, and therefore being tasked with sweeping aside the top layer of gravel ahead of the other competitors. Being fastest is therefore not necessarily the best option, and carefully calculating the amount of speed one should lose without however falling too back behind in the gaps is the art.

    At this game, Sebastien Loeb caught out an angrily surprised Mikko Hirvonen: dropping a massive 25 seconds during this run, the Citroen driver now finds himself behind his rival in third position overall. However, by his comments, the Frenchman might have been expecting to be further back as he commented that he was "not so happy" with his position.

    Not realizing that Loeb had dropped much more time than he expected, Hirvonen's voluntary 17-second loss was insufficient to prevent the Finn from being the second car to sweep the gravel on Saturday – ahead of Loeb.

    "You can't do it much more wrong than I did now," angrily stated a frustrated Hirvonen, aware that his chances of a rally victory might be slipping away. "Completely, completely my mistake."

    Meanwhile, his teammate Jari-Matti Latvala opted to stay away from tactics and push forward to maintain his lead. The Finn's result of 17:57.0 gave him the stage win, as well as the promise of a difficult day tomorrow since he will now have to open the stages.

    "It is a slightly bad move," Latvala acknowledged. "But if you want to win you have to be able to drive as the first car on the road. It's not an easy situation, tomorrow will be a hard day for me."
