    I had to use translator for that site and I didn't get that impression. Originally those comments are from crash.net and the article was about testing with Toyota. There is comments like “That was quite encouraging for a first day in gravel.” So it was before Rally Finland.

    Rallyssimos text is just overlook of Bottas with WRC-cars this summer.

    Lol there's surely no way Bottas was/is on the pace of a WRC driver even after testing on the same piece of road over and over.

    I can't believe it. If he starts driving WRC cars next season he'll be lucky to be anywhere near even Kimi's level, and even then Kimi started with lesser categories and tried to do a bit of groundwork.

    The guy must be out of a drive at Mercedes F1 next year with all this nonsense and wrc testing.

    Mäkinen said in Marca.com that he was surprised about the pace of Bottas.

    Testing times doesn't tell much about rallying. After several runs in same short road it turns to be like circuit and then one of the best circuit drivers should be pretty fast. Back in the days Kimi was faster than Loeb and Ogier on test roads.

    you doubt that c3 was faster asphalt car at the debut of this category? because that some guys among me had mention,after some dry asphalt tests we had seen.
    That the c3 wasnt leading is totally another (well known) story. It happens for various reasons...see Tanak Latvala Lappi Meeke last years.

    the C3 was definitely the best car on tarmac in 2017 in my eyes.

    2017, Meeke was leading Corsica before the engine went kaputt, Mikkelsen was second in Germany and Meeke won in Spain.

    Maybe it's true, but again I cant believe Kimi was faster than Loeb or Ogier in testing.

    I agree, it actually looked better in 2017 than it does now, which is bizarre. It always looked like it had plenty in reserve on dry tarmac, no understeer, just fast. Meeke always looked like he could drive within himself and be fastest, and Corsica and Spain showed that. Now it looks like it understeers like the others did in 2017!
