    Yeh, he could have been second even after missing a chicane on saturday, but fell to fourth, which was still a better result than the likes of Tänak or Neuville could pull off.

    Another thing about comparing the results of Tidemand and Suninen is that Tidemand has been in the Skoda factory team for three years, while Suninen has been driving in various private teams. That must give different circumstances for testing oppoturnities and race kilometres. Also, Tidemand is 4 years older than Suninen.

    But ultimately the team bosses will at most look at your past season and estimate how good you would be on the next seasons and the season after that. And in the case of M-Sport, the budget must be there as well. Suninen has the advance that he has shown that he can be fast in a WRC car. Some drivers can never do that although they are the fastest in JWRC or WRC2.

    At the same time, I would love to see how quick Tidemand would be in a WRC17 car, in an event that's good for him like Sweden or Portugal.

    Yes. In 2013 he was doing his first Rally Sweden with Fiesta WRC. It was really impressive to see him driving back then, that weekend nobody would have thought he wouldn't be driving a WRC car by now...

    we said that inside your homeland rally is much more easier to be fast,and that they need too much work because they have no experience.
    See Lappis performances after Finland for reference.
    That´s what I meant. Maybe only wrong words.
