    I would love to see him again in WRC as I always did. He's certainly not a bad driver and provides multimedia (don't know how to explain this but in 2011-12 he was the first one with daily reports and behind the scenes footage and explanations. People are just jealous that their favorites get less attention despite setting faster times than him. But this is modern marketing.

    It's kind of same as Kimi Räikkönen doing WRC. It gives exposure but not competition. Win or lose?

    Sorry, but I think they are absolutely opposite from the competition point of view. PR fun driver vs F1 circuit professional (doesn't matter Kimi or Kubica).
    And of course it will be good to see all of them in WRC - Kimi, Robert, Valentino, Ken, Petter, please welcome

    Well I see it similar in the way that Kimi and Ken are popular characters and professionals in driving cars fast but not rallying. Kimi's expertise is more in competition but Ken's expertise is closer to rallying than Kimi's.

    Is Petter on your list Petter Solberg? If it is, I don't see the logic...

    I rather seeing Ken using Fiesta WRC for his next Gymkhana instead..

    As I remember, Ken is not so fast, and Kimi yes. Kimi and Robert wanted to be fast in rallying. More or less.

    For this moment he is rallycross driver. For sure we remember him as a rallychampion and a very popular person. Just want to see him back to WRC

    I don't mind him being there. If he brings media and attention to rallying and make it more popular, why not? He's not causing any harm to non mechanical components by being there.

    Rallying is after all just another marketing tool in the grand scheme of things so anything non destructive that helps it float is welcome.

    Seeing Ford pulled the deal on his Hoonigan RX team I cant dislike him doing some WRC rallies.

    All publicity is good and maybe when his fans see him beaten out of sight they might realise how good WRC driver's are and follow the series.

    Also, it's not like he would take a seat from some young talented driver either, it will be an additional car. All good.
