    The guy is still pumped up after Finland. The best JML can hope for is Ogier and Nueville running into issues trying to battle it out. It's going to be exciting regardless...

    That looks proper quick.
    OK, have to realize that it's not possible to judge the real speed but it looks good.

    Well with the one test car written off in Finland testing, it's simply possible Ogier's former car was the only one available and they just removed the tire stickers for Evans testing and he was on DMACK whole test.

    Sure looks like Michelin tyres though I think is what people are getting at. As in the logo on the actual tyre.

    And surely that is part of how Dmack test - by comparing their tyres against their competitor? So having access to both types of tyres as MSport are a Michelin customer, why would you not run both, so that Dmack can learn and develop their tyres to be more competitive?

    yes, you are both right.

    Those Latvala clips are really fun to watch! but he is clearly overdriving at times. Evans looked also good but like you all say, we dont know until the rally starts.

    Latvala has a good record of tarmac results in the recent years, I'm expecting him to be fast in Germany.
