    Why stupid? In my point of view, it is useful to have all contenders meet at a few selected events. Then we can say, who is better and faster compared to each other in "head-to-head" race If I look on this year, how many times have all title contenders met all together? TOP 3 drivers met two times, if I would like to include also Kopecký, then nowhere.

    But the current regulations say that you get excluded from the championship if you don't compete all those three rounds. That's stupid in my opinion.

    Maybe, but how to prevent, that all championship participants be there? Someone miss selected events, and FIA says: OK for now, you can be champion, but maybe you could follow the rules next year?

    Skoda confirmed WRC2 for Tidemand and Kopecky. No mention of Veiby.. maybe they wait and see what happens with Andreas.

    in their facebook page they talk about Andreas as a guest appearance. So I think Veiby will have his chances

    Its because Andreas is still hoping\waiting if Polo WRC 17 will be homologated.
    If yes-he will start with Polo from Sweden,if no- he have to find some other program for him.

    Are you sure or just guessing?
    I don't know if he has the money needed to run with the Polo. He could be waiting also for a private Fiesta.

    Monte Carlo entries are very good.
    Much better than I except.
    They can only choose 4 events freely because 3 rallies are mandatory (Portugal, Germany and Wales)
    So now many of TOP competitors have only 3 free rallies left...
    Who will choose Sweden? Sardinia? Corsica? Poland? Finland? Catalonia? Will some of FAST ones go to long haul?

    Why not Germany for tarmac? But there always was that way - Nordic ones in Finland and Sweden...
    I don't expect many changes in rounds choosing, still few will go over seas, and European events will be with interesting start lists.
