    Tänak for me has been a real dissapointment in the first two rallies this year. Maybe the pressure has been too much. Hope he can get his act together, we need more drivers on the top!

    But what u guys waited from Ott in Monte anyway? First time on Snow-tarmac rally and u wanted podium? lol...
    In sweden i think he showd good speed on qualifying stage. I was a little disapointed too after Sweden, but i really hope he can do well in Mexico.
    Anyway is there a high altitude test for Ford anytime soon?

    Since there is a lot of talk about Tänaks future in the m-sport thread i thought i would search if there is a separate topic about him made in the past and found this old one.


    Quite an interesting read this 13 pages

    Not sure if I agree with pointing out Latvala and Lappi as great wingmen, given their form so far this year.

    Agree that if Tanak wins Sardinia he will be big favorite since Toyota+Tanak do seem like the fastest combination this year. If he doesn't close the gap soon it will be difficult though.

    At least Lappi has taken enough power stage points off Ogier and Neuville.

    Think Tänak has a decent possibility to win the three next events on the bounce, it could bring him back closer to Neuville-Ogier or even leave them behind.

    Turkey should then be interesting, given no one really has an experience advantage over another. The championship is turning out to be quite ok...

    Tanak seems the 'fastest' driver but there is more to winning a Championship than that... Meeke has shown that over recent years.

    Its about consistency and Ogier has proven that. If anyone looks like they've learned that lesson its Neuville...

    What about the cars that have technical issues (and not caused by any hit or driver errors)? Then it's called automatically for that drivers that are inconsistent. Ogier must be one lucky guy out there.
