    Anyone know if Paddon is set to test for GB this week? Reports that he was supposed to do the reccy for Catalunya but didn't show up...

    I'm sure he's fuming about losing that seat, Mikkelsen, potentially limited campaign, Ogier rumours etc.

    Well it's just a rumor Simmi just wrote (haven't seen it else myself).

    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.

    Unless he decided to stop driving tarmac rallies....

    Yes he'll be annoyed but he can't complain. He's regressed since the Argentina win well over a season ago (which was meant to be his breakthrough). One or two podiums since then and a string of bad results and crashes is worrying, not to mention non existent pace on the black stuff. The last two events will be massive for him this season. Let's hope he does well as I had high hopes for him and time is still on his side (age and experience wise, although time might be running out with Hyundai who need titles now).

    Yes, you can. Stupid move from Tänak. From the best, fastest and most reliable car to the finnish joke, which is breaking down in every rally. With M-sport he could be champion, with Toyota... Never.

    That guy demands are too high. SO what if he is world champion multiple times. He is clearly making fool of everbody and I would be laughing if no one wants him. Then he would accept and not hesitate like he rule the world... Sorry but many guys dream of being just in any team in wrc...

    Shame that no one sees Kajetan Kajetanowicz! He won 3rd title of ERC and still they prefer looking for youngsters who have 2 or 3 ralies in wrc behind...

    No disrespect but WRC and ERC are worlds apart.

    Kajetan’s performance in WRC2 in Poland wasn’t exactly eyecatching, I can see why youngsters, who potentially can develop more, are more in demand than him.

    Tanak has gone for the money. Every man and his dog knows that.

    He has to just hope that 1) He doesn't take too long to adapt to the car and 2) Toyota improve the car on rougher gravel rallies and the cars general reliability.

    For once I agree with Colin Clark, it would be a big gamble by Tanak adapting to a new car & team.

    Staying at M-Sport in a car & team he knows so well could be his best chance of ever winning the title.
