    That's right. I didn't check the OÜ stats at all. That's quite something tbh. 12,3M€ net (?) profit with 82M€ turnover. If I had a business to run I might pick up the phone and call Tommi.

    So Märtin and Tänak are now negotiating directly with Toyota's Japanese heads? That sounds very interesting to say the least.
