    If there is Ford WRT next year, I'm sure Ott is in it. In iRally Wilson says he can't afford Ogier.

    Champion? He'd have to beat Paddon first, and hanninen at VW:-)
    Ha'wey Hamilton, bring the WDC crown home and the beers are on me :up:

    Tnak is a very promising driver. He just needs to finetune his driving style. Very throwing and dirty style, just like JML back in 2007 - a real pleasure to watch but clock doesn't like it. And as said, luck is needed too.

    True, he really takes the car by the scruff of the neck and throws it into corners. Great for spectators but as you say, needs a bit of fine tuning but that will come.

    He is already probably better than the 'future champion' that is Matthew Wilson, so he could be good if he is in a full season with ford next year,

    I've been predicting this since the middle of last year. The 7th place in Sardinia with a S2000 Fiesta and a large WRC field was perhaps more impressive than the Wales performance (pleased to say I've been present at both). What does strike me is how young and shy he appears when not in the car. Hayden Paddon seems much more at ease with crowds and PR issues. As has been said elsewhere the sport isn't just about going fast in a car. I'm sure MM will sort that side of Ott's development, clearly that's why they went to Goodwood last year and Rallyfest this year.
    Kris Meeke on Fire -VW so terrified they quit!

    I really hope we get to see a rematch season between Ott and Hayden, whether its S2000 or WRC cars. PSD wasn't really a fair comparison as they had experience of different rallies to each other and were stuck with rather unreliable cars. And perhaps add Hanninen into the mix for a really good 3 way fight.

    Isn't it good to see there is some really good upcoming talent thats not French?

    Hope so. He was very exciting on Sunday. As others have said he will need to tidy up a bit (hopefully not too much) but he clearly has the raw speed.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    Is there upcoming talents from France at the moment? Campana has an FFSA campaign, but besides that - refresh my memory, please.
