    This is the strange case of someone that hasn't important sponsors neither has a big talent, but caught a official steering wheel. Never could understand why Wilson's gave him a oficial car, implying the jumping from few rallyes in WRC2 to the whole WRC season.

    Not a big talent? He started late with rally and had a very good year in WRC2.
    Unfortunatly, the step from WRC2 to WRC came to soon. But there have been several other drivers returning to WRC2 before coming back to WRC and proving what they could do.
    Don't write him off to quickly and certainly don't say he isn't talented...

    Yes.
    Contract of Suninen in TMG (Toyota, Cologne) had fine of 800.000€ if he doesn´t drive or if team don´t offer him a drive.
    so money is the reason why Camilli is still Sport driver.

    Regarding M-Sport and Camilli - things like this can't be a coincidence - http://www.rallyejeunes.com/

    Makes sense for Malcolm as it helps him bolster the business in other areas.

    If you look Camilli 's pace, he was not so far than Ostberg. In France he shown an impressive speed, for his 2nd race in R3, he was fighting with Cedric Robert.
    The season in WRC 2 was not bad but I think he drove a wrcar too early. Another year in WRC 2 has been better but Wilson chose another way. 2016 was only his 4th season and Mexico was his 8th rally on gravel.

    If you look Tanak or Neuville first years, they was more experienced and it was not so good. They was doing some good times but also a lot of crashes. And now they are recognized as fast drivers. At the beginning of the season Camilli did some good times but the end was disapointed. We will see but I think he deserved a seat in wrc.

    Pity, was hoping that Pryce would get a few more rounds, he's someone who's definitely got potential but never found the funding required for competitive rides; hope they give him a few drives in BRC or similar too.


    Camilli for sure should have had this drive last year, but will be interesting to see what he can do with it. Good mix for gravel and tarmac with those two drivers for MSport.

    Can't really get my head around the prize structure to be honest. Pryce won the overall championship and bested one of the paired events. But gets just two rounds? Bizarre really.
