    Well sharing is caring and this tells me Tanak does not care.

    In what reality do pilots fighting for the title share their most specific knowledge? That does not mean they don`t share the same team goal.

    Actually, it's a good point. And i don't believe, that Toyota's service park is like a military factory, where they keep secret what kind of setup some driver uses...

    quite an interesting interview with Ott in estonian newspaper about the car (usually they are crap)

    He is saying that when he joined the team the car was very "finnish", it was only good on smooth and fast gravel roads but now it is like a rally car should be, fast everywhere. They had to make big changes to the the car but it has worked. Interestingly he says that at the end of the last season he felt that the Fiesta was almost a complete car, whereas with Toyota he still feels that there is still a lot more to come and to do. They can make it even faster and work better.

    For Argentina they managed to do big gains with the suspension, the engine power has always been very good but the problem was that all the power didnt go down to the ground but now they managed to do that. Says that it was his wish and vision.

    About that Lappi comment that he isnt as open as Hanninen, he says that Lappi meant general openness, they share the technical things.

    Thanks for the article. It's nice to know there is always some loss in translation when it comes to articles which are non-english. The teams should be sharing set-up info as it benefits the whole team. At the end of the day TGR stands for Toyota Gazoo Racing and not Team Toyota Tanak, Lappi or Latvala. I understand specific set-ups may be kept secret, but anything that effects overall development is shared.

    TGR is saying the tests for Portugal went well for all teams. They have made even more set-up changes to the cars and now Lappi and JML are feeling extremely confident for Portugal. Tanak is coming in pretty pumped after his win. Check out the WRC live Portugal preview where they interviewed Tanak for some time. It was a good interview and he said this win felt better than the first with Ford. We will all see what kind of pace TGR has compared to the other teams...
