Rally Sweden 2007

Marcus Gronholm has claimed his Fifth win in Sweden, and cut Sebastian Loeb's Championship lead to just 2 points.

In a closely fought rally, Gronholm made all the right choices throughout, something that Loeb wished he could say too: "I thought I had a chance until the first loop on Saturday; we were 10 seconds behind Marcus and everything is possible. Then I took the long stud for the hard surface, it was wrong and I lost time to Marcus. After that I was 27 seconds behind and I didn’t try any more."

Of his rally, Gronholm was more positive: "It was a good weekend and a good fight with Sébastien, then finally we could win – it’s nice. I know him (Loeb), he is always pushing and I couldn’t get much of a gap. Then on Saturday we had our chance and then it was easier when it was more than 20 seconds. I did push all the time, but they (the team) sent me wrong split times. They showed I was plus four after five kilometres, then I put the brain to one side and attack!"
