    The corner at 3:06 / 0:56 seems to show the typical I20 issue (understeer in mid-long corners) and Neuville's way of dealing with it (handbrake/throw the car in).

    This seems to have really hit the mark on Jouhki which is actually really funny.

    In that same period just Gronholm alone (the non-Jouhki Finnish driver) had 29 rally wins, Ogier 47 and Loeb 79,...

    Anyway there is a huge difference, now they are ordered by Toyoda to win both titles. Seems like your reply is a good answer to my question...

    The risky part with Evans is that he basically never ever drove a different car than an MSport one, be it R5 or WRC.

    I don't see much pint in that neither for Mikkelsen nor for Hyundai.

    Only reason for Mikkelsen would be that he won't ne sitting at home.

    Nothing new in the Toyota announcement, so a disappointment.

    As discussed multiple times I thought nl it bad both for Toyota and Rovanpera to put him in 3rd while expecting to win manu title.

    The Hyundai story since 2017 is pretty straightforward:
    2017 - Paddon and Sordo struggle => reduce their starts in 2018 and hire Mikkelsen

    What is not given is if someone else will drive as well and what happens to Meeke and Latvala.

    Can't see how there was anything preventing Loeb to put on full wet tire, just like many cars did last year in Spain.
    If he choose not to it's something else.
