The former Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix winner dominated his class in a Citroen DS3 RRC despite this being only his third gravel rally. Despite his success he believes that lack of experience will ultimately count against him on future loose-surface rounds of the series

June 2nd, 2013
Jari-Matti Latvala is on the brink of his first World Rally Championship win for Volkswagen with two stages of the Acropolis Rally to go. A smooth join through the Sunday morning loop in Greece kept Latvala’s lead over Dani Sordo’s Citroen at 1m19.7s.

Robert Kubica has admitted he is pleased with the rally-leading speed he has shown early in his new career. The Pole led his third European Rally Championship round in succession in last week’s Tour of Corsica , but he failed to turn that promise into a win when a fuel pump problem struck his Citroen DS3 RRC towards the end of the opening day. “I’ve been pleased with my pace, I’ve won stages and I’ve been able to fight at the top on all three rallies I have done,” said Kubica

Volkswagen team principal Jost Capito says he will not be pressured by his drivers into delivering upgrades to the Polo R WRC before they are ready.

The Citroen driver’s advantage over second-placed team-mate Mikko Hirvonen has come down from 2m01s to 40s with two stages to go. Loeb said his big lead convinced him it was better to stop and change the wheel rather than risk further damage driving on a flat.

May 25th, 2012
Petter Solberg has admitted he is lucky to have survived the opening day of the Acropolis Rally, having damaged the underside of his Ford Fiesta RS WRC during the second run through the Drossohori test. The Norwegian paid tribute to the strength of his car after the underside suffered a heavy impact with the road surface in what the 2003 world champion described as the most surprising moment of his life. Arriving in service in Loutraki on Thursday evening, Solberg told AUTOSPORT he’d genuinely feared he would be forced to retire from the event.

May 24th, 2012
Jari-Matti Latvala made the best possible start to his return to the World Rally Championship by taking the early lead of the Acropolis Rally. The Ford driver had missed the last round in Argentina after breaking his collarbone in a skiing accident. Rather than starting with a superspecial, this year’s Acropolis features a solitary full-length stage – the 25 kilometres of Kineta – on Thursday afternoon before the crews head for the overnight break
