    He should have been more serious about that win and consider it as a step to improve further and not the top of his career, he cashed in far too early, now its late.
    Stern, but fair.

    The ST branding is really interesting. VW were about to rebrand the Polo as a GTi for 2017 before it got canned. I think if Ford were all the way back in (like they are with Block) then the current car would be known as Fiesta ST WRC.

    Nothing that has not been said before. IMO the lack of social media content needs to be addressed, but the biggest issue is the piss poor tv coverage. To much in car, to many interviews. Youtube videos are more exciting and jawdropping than the main tv coverage.

    TV coverage is a big thing. RallyX are doing it for free, and is getting more and more popular.

    Perhaps an understandable assertion to make NOT but probably 180 degrees wrong direction.

    If you know Paddon at all, you'll know that his goal is not to win one WRC event but to become champion. No one is more committed or driven to achieve that goal than he. If anything, rather than setting the bar too low he may have been setting it too high and failed to recognize both the enormity of his achievements to that time and the degree to which his own efforts and abilities were responsible for them.
    Never do anything you wouldn't want to explain to a paramedic.

    I would say that every fast youngster is there with that in mind, some progress quite well, other have or have had setbacks, just like him etc. Nothing more remarkable.
