    As mentioned above, it will be interesting to see how he deals with being first on the road as it will be the first time? Not sure he has the patience yet, what comes to mind is sweden last year when he bumped into meeke, which to me looked like a frustrated / upset side of Tanak.

    I think Turkey showed his ability to be patient.

    Tanak's time has come. I agree with Clark. No matter how good Ogier is, he can't do it this time.

    It's fun to make predictions. But in rally, things can change really fast.

    Last year after Mexico and Corsica, Ogier seemed unbeatable. Just 4 months later after Turkey, he looked least likely of the 3 to win the title.

    Tnak is undoubtedly the biggest favourite atm, but still I would not bet any big money on him.

    It's not prediction.

    its too early to make any kind of predictions, we have just had only 2 rallies.

    Last year there were same kind of predictions after he won argentina, and we all know how it went after that with basically 2 zero points rallies.

    Each rally will have to be taken on its own merit, but if these drivers feel confident, then they will try to maximize their points while they can, as there will always be those rallies where negative things will happen (driver errors, car breaking, flats,etc.), some of which will be out of their control.
    Very well said! I, as a driver, can confirm, that when you are "in the zone" - you perform at your best without taking big risks, because you are fully concentrated. And actually it's vise versa if you try to slow down, your concentration drops and then mistakes happen.
