    I imagine what little hope there was of that was killed by the situation in Qatar...

    That project is dead. Colin Clark confirmed that on twitter after talking with Al Attiyah at some rally event earlier this year.

    In the podcast interview, JML said "The moment team stops developing the car, is the moment you start loosing". That was his response of the question how competitive Polo could have been. In such case, why Hyundai, Citroen, and partially M-Sport didn't agree to make exception for VW to join WRC 2017?

    Thing is... it probably would have been very competitive for at least first half of 2017. Probably only the Hyundai would have been there with it.

    Toyota was slow/unreliable until Poland/Finland. Fiesta had turn-in issues until Portugal/Sardinia. C3 was messy on gravel until the diff changes that started in Poland.

    Also note that VW stopped developing the 2016 Polo at the start of that year and did no testing with it, and during last half of 2016 it was not really dominating any more. Which is maybe also the source of Latvala's comment.

    Such statistics would only make sense if you divide the number of stage wins by the total number of stages those seasons. I think in the 90s events had much more stages.

    That is true, but it's interesting to see how few stages Ogier has won this year and still won the championship with an event to spare. Not a huge surprise though, it's been clear that one of his best attributes is consistency and the ability to get good results while others crash etc. Also a big help that the Fiesta has been fairly reliable...at least, as far as I can remember.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.
