    As far as I know, they have also chosen German René Mandel. But he shouldn't have any chance against these drivers. Decent list for sure! I would probably choose Veiby or Loubet, maybe even Huttunen or Rovanpera, but well, that´s not my task .

    Maybe not full list, I expect Griebel to be there too.

    Glad to see Rovanperä and Huttunen there. Veiby is clearly the most experienced of the pack and he's got speed as well.

    So many drivers going for a single WRC2 seat! Manufacturer links to vital though. Interested to see Bergkvist (Citroen-ish) and Veiby (Skoda-ish) on there.

    Karl's time has already passed, has he driven anything in like 2 years?
    Edit: Last race 2016 Finland, only 3 races last year without good success. And okay he is still 24 so he has years but 1 year without any driving is loooong.
    And if you mean Gustav he is not ready.

    More surprised that both Nikolay Gryazin and Ralf Sirmacis are missing from the list.

    Would anyone else be surprised to see Rovanperä go for this? I wouldn't have thought he needed to or that it was even his best option. Unless he's just going through the process for that experience itself, as it can't hurt?

    Well, Hyundai has maybe best WRC-car, so why not?
    He needs atleast 1 year experience from WRC events.

    Well it's not like he has a factory contract waiting. But then again, he cannot yet take part in most of the rallies next year, as he'll be 17 for the most part of the year.
