    How is that related to Andreas Mikkelsen? It's interesting question for sure (especially because the car market in Norway is anything but free competition) but it shall be asked in appropriate thread.

    Substitute actual events for round order and you have ;
    2016 ... Out, 2, 5, 6
    2017 ... Out, 7, 5, 6
    Looks pretty similar to me, particulary when you consider last year's Sweden result was unexpected.

    In respect of the remainder of your post, it can pay to remember that the season comprises significantly more than 4 events.

    Never do anything you wouldn't want to explain to a paramedic.

    Sure, but then it's no longer talking about "form". If you take Mads Østberg as an example. His season in total was quite good, pointwise ahead of Tanak, close to Latvala and Sordo. But in terms of "form" he clearly wasn't very competitive in the second half of the season (be it car or driver, or a combination). This "form" is one of the main reasons he is not driving in a factory team at the moment.

    Anyway this is a bit off topic here.

    Give some slack to Paddon, the accident in Monte will probably slow him down for a while. And I'm sure the team understands that as well.

    I hope he is seeking support from a therapist. You hear all the time how train drivers feel a lot of guilt when someone jumps on the tracks and how it chews them up. He must be feeling similary.

    So let's say we take this Hyundai statement at face value.

    They are going to let a guy who is known to be deep in contractual talks with Toyota test their car for an extra point of view - beyond the 4 drivers already known to have tested that car. I get why they've come out and said it changes nothing regarding the contracted drivers - but I think there's more to this test. Just my opinion.

    Well, he has been talking to different teams since the VWexit, testing-compeiting for Škoda and has driven and tested for a team which produced a championship-winning car for four years in a row, so...until nothing is signed, why not. Sure he`ll be back, maybe with a Hyundai, maybe with something else.
