    Yves Matton openly saying he's talking to Ogier for 2018? https://twitter.com/voiceofrally/sta...11610578841600

    The article is in French, only got Google Translate to go by, is that what it says?

    Nice phone call with @DaniSordo this morning. Very pleased to see that we are still mates. Rally Catalunya can't come quick enough!

    No fresh news in Motorsport News today - which went to press before yesterday's Mikkelsen announcement.

    Two small things:

    Matton having a bit of a moan about the fact teams have to nominate their drivers for an event before the previous round has finished. They have to commit their GB lineup before Spain run, and similarly Australia before GB. He implies it's something they need to speak to the FIA about.

    Oliver Solberg is lining up his WRC debut at Wales GB 2018. His plan is to combine his Latvian and Estonian championships with the ERC. It doesn't specific but I have to assume in the U27 championship as he's running a 208 with support from Peugeot Norway. And then he'll be 17 in time to do GB. Petter confirmed he wanted to do the GB reece this year but isn't old enough.

    Can drivers run in ERC before they turn 17 then?

    I don't know - honestly I was quite surprised to see this. Exact wording of the article is:

    [Solberg] has been competing in Latvia and Estonia this season and he will target both of those titles in 2018 with the aim of also contesting five rounds of the FIA European Rally Championship. Solberg's birthday comes on September 23, which would mean he will be 17 and eligible for a Rally GB entry next year.
