    Škoda will likely enter WRC only with new technical rules in 2021. Now it seems pretty sure that it won't happen earlier.

    You're talking rubbish. Mikkelsen and Kopecký were both doing the whole championship and they both did all events. Kopecký did better in the season than Mikkelsen but Mikkelsen won by 1,5 points...

    Škoda works team don't have the capacity to run four cars at the same time. One or two cars would have to be run by some other team. Anyway I'm quite sure there won't be four in Finland.
