    no, you are wrong again like always


    so Paddon to Citroen in 2019 rumours starting already, didnt take a long time, eh?

    Like Nandan says they cant afford 4 cars for a full season. So either Sordo retires or Paddon goes to Citroen then.

    i think Sordo said somewhere that he isnt interested anymore doing a full season?

    Hum it will be interesting at the end of the season, to see how Hyundai will manage in terms of championship in case of last rally decider.
    What is more important for them, manufacturer or driver? We may see the same situation as Loeb / Citroen in 2003.
    Food for thoughts.
    The summer break is already too long...

    I know how little you value Toyota, but i wouldn't rule out the manufacturer yet... The hyundai is not the most reliable either (Mikkelsen), and toyota have some strong rallys comming (Finland my guess is on a 1-2 toyota, tarmac they will be strong too).

    Yes Toyota could easily go 1-2-3 in Finland with the unlimited testing next to their HQ there. Almost did that least year with Lappi driving there first time in WRC and with Haninen.
    Then again they can totally fail like Citroen did this year in Corsica.

    For Suninen and Evans Finland was also probably their strongest rally last year (discounting DMACK).
    Hyundai didn't had the pace, Paddon's comeback isn't really working well and Mikkelsen has usually been weak in Finland.

    If Hyundai drops 30 points there it might be tough for manu title.

    Germany depends on whether they sort tarmac car, Spain even more so. I don't expect miracles. GB and Australia were both strong from Hyundai last year. Turkey might end as an interesting joker.

    Not a chance, spoke to both Paddon and Marshall. Not interested.

    If Paddon is not interested, they are unlikely to get any top line driver.
    Ogier could go there, but could end up like Alonso in a McLaren.
    At least when Meeke was there, they could say the car was was quick,
    Its looking more like it was driver that was quick, and the car not.
    What Nevilles current contract status with Hyundai?
    Honestly feel Citroen will end up PAYG rally team.

    He's only had 3 WRC rallies so far this year - 5th in Sweden (just pipped for 4th by Lappi in powerstage IIRC), 4th in Sardinia and was leading in Portugal when he crashed avoiding a rock on the line.

    While its not quite the podiums/wins he's wanting, I don't think its bad at all considering the lack of time in the car? I don't think he even got to test before Sardinia.

    It will be interesting to see how he goes in Finland, he is usually fast there but was pretty unlucky last year with rocks.

    I also think Paddon is lacking the pace we would expect. In Sardegna he was taking it easy because of the Portugal injuries?
