Wow, this is my fgirst 'public' attempt at the guessing game. Based on my private speculation in the past I recommend you reverse this list then drop out every second name and replace with another and you'll be closer than I am.
1. Markko Martin. Markko/Ford are on a roll.
2. Carlos Sainz. Sainz is consistent.
3. Petter Solberg. Solberg needs a break.
4. Richard Burns. Keeps plodding on.
5. Colin McRae. Will post sporadic fast times but not put it all together.
6. Tommi Makinen. Considering Diaper tech!
Gronholm will be early leader but try too hard ad stuff it.
