    Now that Mikkelsen fought his way back to WRC, he's not stepping out of that car. Seven rounds on the shakedown and now fifth place. Latvala also pushed to third on his fourth round

    How about Mikkelsen's lack of knowledge of the car compared to Breen...

    There is always the problem with over-analyzing shakedown. Then again that's the only results we have so far so why not...

    As already mentioned I totally agree that 2-3rd runs are best to compare.

    Then again Mikkelsen is by far the driver with least driving time in the car out of all the WRC drivers, with the only test being on French gravel. So he should be expected to improve not only by memorizing the road.

    There's really almost nothing you can tell from a shakedown. Some guys really push to see what the conditions allow, some take it easy not to take any risks, some save tyres, some just experiment with setups. Everybody uses it for different purposes.

    Great morning at shakedown even if it was one of the worst choices of route, ever! Neuville and Sordo were really throwing the Hyundai around - such driving can only end in tears before bedtime!
    Kris Meeke on Fire -VW so terrified they quit!

    Absolutely. For example Hayden said he was checking a different setup on each run, which related to different types of stages later in the rally.

    With that many runs you have to think Mikkelsen is just getting as much seat time in the car as possible.

    Prokop was apparently... exploring the scenery.
