    Yes, imo there is just too much to say...

    That's normal.
    Nobody actually listens as you would listen when talking to someone, at those speeds you don't have time to do that. Loeb once said that he adjust his brake bias automaticaly because he has no time to think in the car.

    But that doesn't change the fact that meeke's pacenotes are unnecessary complicated.

    Portugal and Sardinia confirmed for Østberg, making it three Citroen cars for those events, as well as Argentina with Al-Qassimi

    Especially competitive ones. Mads will have a huge starting position advantage but we will see how Citroen has improved on gravel.

    That's a great point. Mads is a capable driver and has the ability to win if all goes well for him. He always seems to fall under pressure. Leading in the beginning and slowly falling behind as the day goes. Would be nice to see him charge for a good finish.

    Last year we saw him often in the top 3 during the first day, especially morning stages, but he could never finish with a good result. However, it was often due to his private car breaking on parts that never broke on the M-Sport cars.

    It's obvious. The car even had Adapta stickers in Sweden.

    Mads is partially paying. I don't know the exact percentages, but Mads is not paying the full amount as in his Ford deal. It's the best scenario for him.

    I also think Mads has ruined his chances of being fully picked by any team since they know he comes from money and is willing to pay for drives. If he can get a few wins it would be a different story, but when you pay for a drive you sometimes get a car that is not up to par... it's a nasty situation. This is why you see promoters of young talent telling teams there is no way they are paying for a drive. I think once you go down this road it is hard to get out.
