Petter Solberg and Chris Patterson 2nd in Japan!

After being the overnight leaders for two days, Petter and Chris today ended 2nd in Japan. Sebastien Ogier won the rally, while Jari-Matti Latvala came third. - I am so happy with the second today, says Petter Solberg. - I started this rally with fever and a really bad cold, so being second today feels quite good. Of course I do feel a bit disappointment of not winning after being so close, but second is good enough today!

Petter and Chris started the third and final day being the overnight leaders, but a steering problem made them loose time from the beginning. - I hit something quite early, and could feel it right away that something were wrong, says Petter Solberg. - For a while we were really concerned about not being able to finish the rally. But without this, I just know that Sebastien would have had to fight really hard to beat us today, my confidence were back this morning and I was ready for a big attack!

Petter is currently 4th in the championship, and the 18 points scored today gives him a total of 118 points.
