    For me personally, that has nothing to do with it.
    I have seen her drive on tarmac and gravel as well, and I don't think she's ready. Another 2 years and lots of rallies with R2 car and a good, consistent codriver would be much better in my opinion. But I might be wrong, time will tell.

    So Suninen is now a RB athlete, hence the livery.

    1 She's female so she'd attract female fans. Look at who girls heroworship. Female tennis players, runners, footballers, swimmers, skiers etc. I reckon that the main reason women aren't into motorsports is that there are hardly any female rolemodels so it is associated with being a 'guy's thing'.

    2 She's Italian. The Italians love motorsport but for a long time there hasn't been an Italian rally driver fighting for podiums. There is currently also no Italian brand (which is a shame) and that is not going to change any time soon by the looks of it so she'd get the Tifosi back into rallying.

    3 Her being a woman would also give the WRC an edge over F1 where there is almost no chance we'll see a female competitor any time soon.

    4 It would be fun seeing her battling with her boyfriend Craig Breen

    Well, only under the circumstance that she delivers and is competitive. I'm not suggesting she should get a seat just because she is a woman. Assuming she is that good, don't you think I have a point?

    Why would you assume she is "that good"? If you would have followed the results of her events in the past few years you should know she is not "that good". Of course it would be a good thing having a very talented female rally driver, but there hasn't been one since a very long time...
