Rally Cyprus Update

The FIA decided today to exclude both Peugeots from the Rally Cyprus after concluding that the 307s were using non-standard water pumps. The rally was awarded to second place driver Sebastien Loeb, and everyone else in the standings moved up one place. The “win” moves Loeb into first place in the driver’s championship (giving him the unenviable task of running first on the road in Greece), and drops Gronholm to fourth, four points behind Petter Solberg. Ford’s Markko Martin currently holds third.
