    There will be a lot of drivers on the market if Hyundai´s WRC era is coming to an end.

    He must be living in some different zone.. There are maaany drivers who would get the seat before him..
    Why would Toyota or anyone else give him a seat, if he wouldn't be in top3's speed or even top5 today..

    He was in top 3 in his second last WRC rally, 4th and 3rd in the 3 rallies before that again. So dunno what you on about.

    He was obviously gambling on getting the seat at Toyota in case Ogier retired at the end of this year. Now that Ogier stays for one more year it's bad indeed for Mikkelsen as other "new" drivers might become more interesting.
    At the same time Evans has confirmed that "anyone" of the established drivers can be fast in the Toyota. (only Toyota driver without podium is Katsuta, even Hanninen got one).

    Getting a seat at a new manu team would be more realistic, but doesn't look like any new manu is coming. Anyway he is still only 30.

    Examples of the "new" drivers are indeed Solberg, Loubet or even Huttunen. Breen has to show real speed on tarmac and above all consistency which is even below Mikkelsen standard. They drove 5 WRC rallies in same cars (2x i20 and 3x C3), Mikkelsen was faster in all except the first one.

    Interesting to see how the compares with the ERC guys. He must win to maintain his image as 'ready for a WRC return'.
