    Neuville lost brakes on Sardinia loosing a minute and dropping from 2nd (behind Paddon who crashed later) to 4th.

    He also had overheating issues in Mexico just like all cars except Citroen.

    That brake issue was most probably the result of one of his lucky escapes.

    I think Hyundai are about to miss the biggest chance for WMC they ever had.
    They were in best position this year, yet they were not able to capitalize on that.
    With Citroen getting back in the game, and Toyota getting stronger, next year will be even harder. In order to protect the investments they have made, and to have better chances next year, they need another top driver. That's why my bet is Ogier signing with Hyunday.

    Hyundai has the budget for Ogier, but I think he would go to Citroen before going to Hyundai.

    Also rumor has it TGR has a crazy huge budget.

    A bit strange that some one like Mandel, with no (I think) international experience is in the selection. Expected Veiby and Ingram in it too.

    Veiby has a contract with Skoda, no? For his APRC programme.

    That probably counts him out.

    This season he's driving for the Printsport team on WRC events and MRF team on APRC events. Not the factory team. It's comparable to Greensmith being a current M-Sport driver. Unless of course he has a deal for next year as well.
