Look at the hi-res version.... BTW, I agree also and the reason I thought they looked like PD's is that there is no center BBS badge to make me think otherwise.....

Plus, the news that they were going to BBS this season, so I new that they were not...

Yep, was much better to see the #1 there, but he knows he's got to be a bit smarter this year. I really think this year will be much more difficult for him (and all the top drivers) as there are even more great drivers in the top 15 than there was last year. All teams are facing even more battles within there own teams. Duval should have a great year and really give Seb something to fight for.

The exhaust has been on that side since WRC started in 97 season. IMO, I liked it better when the rally cars were more production based before WRC in the group A days.

Agreed, but the 5 probably would have been at least a 3 if not for the two water crossing incidents that ended up in DNFs. You could say that Petter should have been smarter about those, but I think you can equally blame the engineers for leaving the front of the car so vulnerable to that kind of damage.
