    I don't see much reason to be negative about Tidemand. He is not quite there on asphalt yet but he has done pretty much everything right this year to seemingly take the title. He has beaten Suninen, although Tidemand perhaps has a slightly quicker car, and look how good Suninen was on his two World Rally Car outings so far.

    Lappi had the edge on him last year but Lappi had more experience.

    Only major problem is the lack of works drives in WRC.

    I found this link on Rallyper's twitter; http://www.vf.se/rally/tidemands-man...-med-wrc-team/ Tidemand is in talks with WRC teams.
    He is however not on the top of the list of the team's drivers wish list,
    ...Funny how ev'rything was roses when we held on to the guns...

    Max does not choose the Dutch nationality, he has a Dutch passport!

    So what next to Tidemand? WRC2 with Skoda or with M-Sport? WRC with Toyota or M-Sport?

    Got my fingers crossed for Pontus. Even if he does another year in WRC2 and wins I don't see an obvious landing spot for him.

    With Andreas getting his deal at least EVEN can put their full weight behind getting him a 2018 programme.

    I don't expect him to continue with Škoda.
