The second day of the Rally of Portugal will start in some of the wettest conditions for the World Rally Championship in recent years, which could work to the detriment of the current leaders. The torrential rain which arrived in the Algarve area last night has continued into this morning, with the stages north of the rally’s Faro base turning extremely muddy. In these conditions, the best place on the road is at the front of the field, with the gravel stages worsening in condition with every car that passes.

Ford and Citroen have taken totally opposing decisions regarding the running order for tomorrow night’s opening loop of Rally of Portugal stages, with the factory Fiestas at the back of the pack and the DS3s at the front.

Ford’s Malcolm Wilson says there is more performance to come from the Fiesta RS WRC – but the drivers will have to wait until Rally d’Italia before they feel the real benefit of the tweaks. The homologation on the engines for the all-new World Rally Cars will be set at the end of April – and Wilson says the Cumbrian-based team will be working flat-out on the 1.6-litre motor up until the deadline. After completing a one-two-three result on the opening round of the World Rally Championship in Sweden, Ford was left trailing the Citroens in Mexico last week
January 4th, 2011

Raikkonen ended last week’s Rally of Portugal in 10th place, but Citroen Junior Team manager Benoit Nogier said it was tough to expect anything more from the largely inexperienced Finn. The former Formula 1 world champion has only just completed his seventh round of the World Rally Championship

May 29th, 2010
Sebastien Ogier will take a 21-second lead into the final day of the Rally of Portugal, having matched the chasing Sebastien Loeb’s pace on the second afternoon.
