    I'm not sure if the language course was something he was doing anyways and was just pranking the sillyseason hunters. But for sure he was hinting of driving already in Spain (after 4 weeks), whereas Tänak will most likely not change teams before Spain.

    it's all about 2018. And Tanak move to Toyota and Mikkelsen 3 rally for Hyundai. It's just warm-up and practive with a car for 2018

    But Tänak would have like 4 months to learn Finnish if he needed to.

    I remember trying to talk English to a taxi driver in Tallinn and he said he speaks better Finnish than English. But it's that for the older generations who grew up in the Soviet years and could only see Western TV by tuning to Finnish stations and learning the language that way.

    BTW I was thinking further about the language factors in Toyota. It could even be a problem if a part of the team speaks Finnish and some people don't understand it, even worse if there's a Finnish clique and an Estonian clique. I think Juho Hänninen said they try to remember to speak English at all times. But of course it could help the Finnish drivers with their limited English skills for the crucial discussions with the team managers, or trying to explain technical things to the engineers. Can't imagine how it's for Meeke and Breen at Citroen, and how it will turn if Ogier joins the team.

    Im sure i either read, or was told, that everyone speaks English at Toyota, for the most part. So there's no cliques that form.

    He already can start learn it

    About Clark twitter and Sordo, I think it's a huge possibility of 4 car team for GB or maybe even for Australia for Hyundai, especially after Nandan interview to wrc.com. Dani know so he don't be dropped for GB/AUS , and reacted so aggressively

    I don´t see 4 cars in Australia, too costly and complicate.
    But for Wales 4 is highly possible and also for some rallies in 2018.

    Story in the last couple of hours shows PSA might be on the verge of another Dieselgate scandal.

    We all know how that went for VAG.

    Big troubles ahead for PSA
