    Nice livery ! Will be good to see the C3 WRC running again.

    question:

    knowing the average level of the c3 in comparison to the others, is this a good chioce for test and development of the new tires?

    If everyone is on the same tyre, does it really matter?

    You don’t need an outright speed / performance tyre

    It will still do the job. It's not that far from the other cars in performance after all, it's not like they would be using an R5 car or an old generation WRC car. Remember, this car still won rallies last year.

    It doesn’t have to be competitive - just consistent with a comparable level of performance.

    It wasn't a bad car by any means, at least in certain conditions. The only issue which made it uncompetitive was how tough it was to drive and wring out the most from it.

    All the other candidates had a big issue or two associated with them:

    Meeke - the way he was kicked from Citroen for "being a danger to himself and others" as they put it, probably made Citroen say no. C3 development also didn't come out as positive for him.
    Latvala -only drove Toyota and is still pretty much associated with them (promised free drive after Sweden, likely to buy himself one or two each year)
    Paddon - only drove Hyundai in competition, still very much associated with them on NZ and maybe most imporant...lives in NZ, any kind of travel from there is not to be relied on at the moment.

    Were they actually candidates or was that just a media assumption? Mikkelsen was working with Pirelli already last year.

    Mikkelsen is hoping to be the best choice after Sebastien Ogier quits at Toyota. He is planning on showing his skills in the 2021 season. One option is the Sainteloc C3 WRC but he's not confident about its performance with the team not developingn it. He has the same concerns about the performance of the Fiesta, thus he's looking at Toyota and Hyundai for one-off rallies.

    He might take Ogier's empty seat in 2022 but he wont 'replace Ogier' for Toyota when they already have Evans and Rövanpera.
