    Seems very unlikely to me that Sordo won't drive in 2021. Hyundai don't have anything close to a safe points scorer to replace him. Breen is still unproven (ref. 1 good rally in 4 starts) and hasn't...

    Temperature goes both ways. If it's too dry/too hot the tire is worn more and "unstable" (too soft).

    But if it's too cold the tire is too stiff and doesn't work. Hence my point that for R5s...

    I'd say on Canarias there were some small indications that Michelin wets might be slightly better when it was very wet, while Pirelli wets were better when it was damp. But...

    Suninen drove Monza rally 2 years ago and got clearly beaten by Rossi and won only a single stage.
    That's why I don't think he will do well. Don't remember him doing well on WRC SSS either.

    Ahh I see, Mikkelsen's complete lack of pace on 2 wet tires meant that Pernia that wasn't pushing on his 4 slicks wasn't able to beat him.

    With slush/tons of rain I wonder what tire is best, the "snow" tire without studs (maybe not enough drainage) or the "superwet" one (maybe too hard compound?).
