... therefore nothing has changed in rallying in the last 150 years.

Now, I have to admit, I'm not that fit but it gives you a new appreciation for racing drivers who keep this up for 6 times as long and probably experience 2 or 3 times the g-forces. Mind you, on the kart track, the longest break you get from cornering is about 3 seconds.


They asked Kimi how the two (F1 and rally) compare and he said that for him rally was even harder because you're in the car almost the whole day but I think the biggest problem for him were the morning stages :p

But when you see Schumacher in F1 at 42 (and this year I think he's on pace), you would think that rally drivers could stretch their careers well into their 40s?

I have the remedy for you, Funker: use a rib protector, my man.

It's the same as using gloves to dig earth: you feel a huge difference after one hour.

I'm 52 and fit enough to drive a kart for two hours or more, but not without a protector.

If you hear music things get even better, don't ask me why, so carry your Ipod or cellphone and prepare yourself to be amazed. Music with a mid beat works better, salsa will make you a smiling racer.

Sometimes I wonder if you read anything of what I write, darn.

WRC is doing great, thanks. And, yes, it's physical. And mental. It's a whole body thing, that's why, I guess, music helps.

I am not happy with Stoner's retirement but not in same for Loeb. I think he did all at this serie and he has to look different challenges . I don't know what will be wrc 's situation next year . Ford quits. That's not good
