    And yet you've got Latvala, Breen, Paddon, Lappi, who are modest and never place the blame on someone else unless absolutely necessary. Neuville thinks he's untouchable.

    Neuville is under tremendous pressure this is his one and only chance for WDC, until Sebastien makes the car for himself.

    Still no excuse to be a dick. In that case, everyone is under pressure of trying to make the most out of their only championship chance in years. There's no doubt it's gotten to everyone (Latvala had never been as angry as this time for all I know). Neuville needs to get his head out of his ass.

    Can’t agree with you Steve. He accepted depromotion inside the team in several ‘15 rally’s and was able to get back to the top during ‘16, proving he's one of the best.

    That is true, but in those times he had nothing he could lean on to support his "if you look at my teammates the car isn't fast". Back then, he'd been humbled.

    Also, thanks for being polite

    I understand that they are under pressure and that you probably don't get very far if you don't think pretty highly of yourself. But there are charming egos like Gronholm, Petter Solberg, Carlos Sainz. Neuville more often than not just comes about flatout arrogant. There's no banter through sarcasm or comments where you have to read between the lines.

    Does he need 'don't cut' a bit more often in the notes? Bit of a odd place to clip the inside, almost like he was anticipating a touch of understeer and got a sharper turn-in than expected.

    it is a little bit pity/shame these young indisputably talented boys are obliged to drive in WRC2 or ERC until age of 26 or higher (and EP was quite lucky to drive best team out of WRC(1) because many "young guns" don´t have such luck and opportunity). Generally the situation with factory seats is very bad these days.
    Visit South Moravia. It is the real paradise

    We have four manufacturers with three cars each, so it makes 12 factory seats. Look few years back how many factory seats were available. Do you still think the situation is very bad these days?
    Obviously it is difficult to get on top, but such is the nature of life. Always was & always will be.
