    on his day....

    all stars alligned....

    In other words he is not a winning driver... maybe he is a winner on social media wars.

    After that amazing argentina win he became nothing and remains there for far too long to be considered for anything, apart from NZ drives on village events to promote local car sales

    Most people of sound mind N.O.T would know that to win in this game it has to be your day. There are too many variables, some of ones own making, others not, for it to be otherwise. He has already proven to be a "winning driver" and those of us who pay attention can see that he still has all the capability necessary. He just needs to go out and do it.
    Never do anything you wouldn't want to explain to a paramedic.

    Citroen will be looking at him but he'll be at Hyundai for 2019.
    Nothing against Paddon, but what Citroen needs more than anything for 2019 is a driver who's capable of winning every day. I.e. Citroen needs either Ogier, Neuville or Tänak and as the latter is contractually bound to Toyota for 2019, that leaves Ogier and Neuville for Budar to chase on.

    No way Neuville is leaving Hyundai. That i20 is built around him. Would take years to do that with another team.

    Tidemand would be a great choice in my opinion. Sure he will take time to get up to speed but he has good experience. Skoda is not planning on getting involved until 2020 so he could easily sign a 1 yr contract to get his feet wet.

    Do you think Skoda would allow that if they're truly going for a WRC program? Or if Tidemand would get a seat at Citroen, he would want to return to Skoda?

    On the topic of Paddon, I think there are two main issues between him and a championship title

    1) He is not good on tarmac
    2) He is not good on power stages

    Which is also why he's not contesting the full season
