    I think like this: Monte is the most difficult rally to learn and you just have to practice it as much as possible. And Lappi is Toyota´s future. Very simple. Let´s wait and see.

    What would be the benefit for Toyota to allow him to compete in a competitors vehicle?
    Is there precedent for this?
    Makinen should now build a R5 barn out at 'the farm'.
    With the experience they now have, and maybe hire a R-Classes boss, to concentrate on the commercial rallycar market.

    A lot of data from these cars can be used across the model range.

    R5 is a commercially available thing you can buy, no moral or other restrictions there.

    Hmmm, that didn't go too well for Emil last year. The test driver role is interesting though, presumably for the new R5.

    Agree. But too much pressure and few rallies, funding problems, all worked in negative direction in 2016.
    Hope this year will get him calm enough for driving only. And as much as possible. Then we´ll see.

    Hmm,Camili and Suninen. What a strong rival to Skoda motorsport WRC2 team. It seems to me the WRC2 will have a massive balls this year.

    Will be interesting to compare Camilli and Suninen although i think it will be very hard for Camilli to beat Suninen. Actually i think it will be impossible but we dont know how this one year experience in WRC class has made in impact on Camilli.
