Not unexpectedly, Marcus Gr nholm and human nav system Timo Rautiainen dominated the Swedish Rally right up to the last four-wheel drift. No amount of shotgunning by S bastien Loeb could pull him closer than second — a bad tire choice costing a crucial 20 seconds in an earlier stage. The win marked Gr nholm's fifth in Sweden. In third was fellow Finn Mikko Hirvonen. Next stop, Norway, which as Gr nholm says is, "a bit different and no one knows it." That's probably just the imported, duty-free celebratory hooch talking.
