    - So the only option is some rich sponsors paying him... who would that be?
    Hyundai still has to pay him for 2018 anyway?

    But if he didn't show up for recce on purpose it's stupid no matter which team he is going to drive for.

    Doing recce means getting paid to make notes and record vids of the stages. Having done notes and seen the stages is an asset and only helps in the future.
    I'd be very surprised if that was the case, his professionalism and hard work is quite well known.

    More likely it just came from someone making up rubbish for attention, thats how a lot of rumours start.

    Well did anyone see him in Catalunya? The info came from Julian Porter at a pre-rally fan briefing so I don't think it's some rubbish for attention.

    PErhaps he knows he's not doing the rally in 2018.

    For sure if he and Dani are sharing a car, Dani would be chosen for his home event...

    If you could cross Kajto's reliability with Lukyanuk's speed then maybe.. but both are too old. Everyone is looking to find the next Loeb or Ogier before some other team gets them under contract. Mini-Solberg will probably be the next one to be hyped up now that Rovanpera is knocking on a bit.

    So it's again based on the Autosport article, which is an interpretation by David Evans of what Tänak said in the M-Sport Rally Day
