Petter in the lead -- day 1 Mexico

Petter and Phil had a fantastic day here in Mexico. With the fastest time on 5 of todays 9 stages, the Petter Solberg World Rally Team is now the overnight leader of Rally Mexico. Sebastien Ogier is second, 15 seconds behind, and Sebastien Loeb is third.

- Today has been good fun, Petter says. -- Of course our road position was a good advantage, but still we have been fast. It will be more difficult tomorrow being first car on the road, but I will keep on enjoying the driving and the fight.

Together with the afternoon stages, came the questions about tactics and if Petter would drop down on the classification to avoid being first on the road tomorrow. -- I have no reason to play tactics, Petter said. I'm here to drive as fast as possible not to play. We have no plan, no strategy, just to take it as it comes.

Rally Mexico continues with 8 more stages Saturday. First car will be on the road at 0754 (local time).
