Gronholm, Raikkonen hit trouble

Postby Sculptor » Fri 12 Feb, 2010 4:23 pm

Marcus Gronholm and Kimi Raikkonen have both run into trouble on stage six of the Rally Sweden.

Formula 1 convert Raikkonen has stopped on the stage, with initial reports from camera crews suggesting he hit a snow bank in his Citroen Junior C4.

The Finn managed to continue for a short distance before pulling to a halt again. He eventually rejoined and completed the stage 26 minutes behind the leaders.

Gronholm was holding sixth on his return with Stobart Ford, but lost over ten minutes on the stage when the car developed an electrical problem. He was able to coax it into life again and continue to the end of the stage.

Mikko Hirvonen still leads the lead for Ford, with Sebastien Loeb now back ahead of Dani Sordo in second...........

Both came back well though on the next stage with Marcus 4th and Kimi 9th. Hirvonen continues to lead with Loeb second.

Should that not be WRC convert Raikkonen?

Anyway, the best have offs so there can be little concern if a rookie has one (even if he is an ex F1 WDC). The main thing is he recovered and is still in.

She was indeed on her Blackberry. She kept asking me to ring it, but I think it was switched off. All I could hear was a strange buzzing noise. Obviously it amused her as she just kept giggeling

You shouldn't tell anyone Chilli....

Loved the TV coverage on Motors and Dave when I got back...

And on the WRC site...

Just realised they have more Kimi than ever I got in all the hours of F1 stuff....
