    solid debut from Virves, much experience gained which is the most important.


    any word what exactly happened with Breen?

    Hey, but lost again WRC star, somebodoy who was x-times vice world champion. It would be disgraceful if they would be beaten on home ground by drivers like Kopecky, Neubauer, Bonato, Lopez...this is huge diference.

    we didnt talked about talents,we just talked if Italians have a competitive championship.
    And as you saw your opinion was totally stupid.
    Breen rolled while 5th,and Neuville won Albertini after 93 stage km with 22,7 sec.

    Guys Neuville was on a i20 R5 against Polo's and Fabia's. As much as br21 (all the respect) and other guys are telling me about the competiveness of the i20 this rally to me confirms that the current i20 R5 is not close to the Skoda's and VW's.

    For example Gryazin was so off the pace with the Hyundai and really on it with the Polo. Hyundai by any means is not a bad car but I'll presume more difficult to set up and drive.

    Italian and other smooth tarmac champions (Spain, Portugal) is actually one of the few where the i20 R5 has almost always been somewhat competetive.

    That said I agree it's probably a bit worse than some other cars, especially when it's slippery.

    It is not only about car, but also about team. And of course about setup.

    On a video posted on Instagram, he said: “We picked up a puncture on the front-right on a fast right corner followed immediately by a left that tightened and the moment I turned for the left the tire just kicked off the bead and we were passengers from that point.

    So basically only Huttunen has been able to use i20 potential?
