Poor Daniel Carlsson

I was really sad to hear that Daniel Carlsson has been excluded from the rest of the season by the FIA for failure to complete the rounds he had committed to. At the start of the season, I was impressed by his innovative way to find a drive. He found sponsorship through the World Rally Against Drunk Driving campaign, meaning he both got to drive and publicize a worthy cause too. Everybody wins. But alas, something went awry and the FIA came down hard on him. Undeservingly hard, if you ask me. Now, Manfred Stohl must get the other teams to consent to his participation in the rest of the season, while the OMV Kronos team is scrambling to fill the number 2 car. If they don’t, they’ll fail to meet the requirements of a Manufacturer’s Team.

Ugh. I just wanna hear some good news for a change!
