Given the problems with the weather in the Med, it sounds like the question is if Mitsubishi can make it to the rally!

If their reliability were higher, I would say that Cyprus would be an excellent opportunity or Mitsubishi to finish well, since a lot of other cars are likely to go out. But given the recent problems found with the suspension, it seems unlikely they can take advantage of others' misfortunes.

My money's on Petter for the win. The techincal events are his favorites.

The stage that took out both the 2003-spec Fords last year is the second stage to run this year. Hopefully they have cured their dust-ingesting problem, or it could be a very short event for Ford!

Anyone who is interested, I have a really long, full team-by-team analysis here. (It also has the times the stages run at, adjusted for PDT, for anyone who doesn't want to do the math. Yes, I spend too much time thinking about this! )
