WRC - Monte-Carlo 2012
Top 10 after day 1 (4 stages)

Latvala had a 30s lead going into Stage 4 (he too a minute out of everyone with a good tyre choice on SS2) but rolled and couldn't get the car going again (stuck on a wall I think). There is no SuperRally system for Monte this year, so he is completely out of the rally.

Loeb had the right tyres for SS4 and pushed hard to put pressure on everyone, it looked like it worked, he was miles faster than anyone else and probably forced the error from Latvala.

Ogier is running 4th overall on an S2000 car, it will be interesting to see what he can do over the entire rally. The only other time I've seen anything like this was when Citroen won 2 tarmac rally's with an F2 class car in 1999 (Philippe Bugalski), but the rules allowed those to be lighter than the WRC cars and it was on dry tarmac, so 4wd wasn't a huge benefit.
