    Well it might come in handy if he goes into water Mexico-style again.

    Naah, it's just been written in such way to make it sound nasty. I'm sure the story doesn't include anything Ott would disagree on.

    Latvala was very much the team leader this year and his mental strength seemed better than previously, but will he be able to keep that up with a fast and experienced team mate coming on board?

    Time will tell, at least he has the advantage of knowing the car for a year already, like he said it is "his" car.

    what i find odd that Latvala was the last one to test the 2018 spec Jaris, maybe he has tested it in finland already, dont know about that.

    I think as the season progresses both Tšnak and Lappi can be faster than Latvala.

    Since mid-season basically every other week there is some info how Toyota is going to be so fast and beat everyone. Further reinforced when the new 2018 aero was shown.

    If you look at it from completely opposite point of view Toyota was clearly race-winning fast only in Finland. (with unlimited testing right outside of team HQ). + you can add Sweden, but Neuville was quite a bit faster.

    Since their (dominant) performance in Finland they have not managed a single podium for the rest of the season.


    Sure they might turn out to be the fastest in 2018, but based on the 2017 results it's far from guaranteed.
