Look at Mitsu. They also have muchos problemos. Thats too bad that real driver skill and real cars can be beaten by rookies driving tiny cheater cars.
Are you kidding? Pannizzi and Delecour are not rookies! They were driving in the WRC when Burns was a spotty youth in Peugoet 205s.
Peugeot, Ford and Subaru are virtually identical in terms of performance. Tyres and driver are the main difference.
Personally I would like to see McRae win it, as he is the best driver, but I would settle for Burns as champion as he is British. However, I fear he does not have the experience to do the business under pressure, as he has shown this year, with a series of unforced errors.
