    Didn't realise Rhys Yates was planning on doing Catalunya. Don't expect too much pace from him though.

    From what I can see there seems to be a healthy respect for each other. And that's all you need.

    Yeah have to assume Hyundai just weren't willing to swallow that cost of a works-run R5. And getting Andreas up to speed and potentially impacting that title fight is a bigger priority. I get that.
