    Richard De Groot (#132) is listed as piloting a "CRF 450X Yamaha"

    Well, his name was mud after last year, no way KTM's or Red Bull's PR people were gonna sit for that. Especially Red Bull, where they sell image.

    So it's taken Luis about 23 minutes from 10 to 11 which is not long. Does this mean he had a problem between 9 and 10 which he has overcome? Sounds like it to me.

    If you recall at the beginning of this Rally CDP was rather grumpy. Then we complained about that on the F5irehose, and voila! nice ever since. F5 spies I tell ya! :deal

    Even with penalty, that still leaves Chaleco #2 a little ahead of Faria in #3. Pretty much a guarantee of an Orange podium. Unless CDP messes up bad, no way Chaleco can take up that much time for the #1 podium.

    I think he only has a little over 6 1/2 on Faria. Wouldn't a15 minute engine penalty put him into 3rd?

    For sure 1st place for tomorrow is all but gone.

    If he gets the penalty he will be in 3rd. position

    Faria +14'41"
    Lopez + 23'15'' ( now 8'15'')
    Jakes + 24'45''
