    So who will have advantage this year, especially now that Toyota has an arguably stronger full-time line-up than in 2019 ? Is it better to rotate drivers for their best events, or is using the same driver's on all rounds and their extra seat-time going to pay off ?

    “It seems,” he told DirtFish, “that Tommi has more free time to think about my drivers than I have free time to think about his comments.”

    If we count all points collected with each brand after 3 rallies:
    (based on overall Top 10)

    Toyota 150 (49+54+47)
    Hyundai 91 (33+33+25)
    Ford 47 (16+14+17)
    Skoda 8 (0+0+8)
    Citroen 7 (3+0+4)

    Total 303 (101+101+101)
    (MC+SWE+MEX)

    Quick question to any people out there who may know - how many of the WRC drivers use a personal simulation rig? Following a weekend of watching virtual motorsport, some were quite good (IMSA Sebring, VLN, etc) there were/are plenty of drivers who use it as a tool of the trade. Now, we know rallying is different, but sims like iRacing/ rFactor2 are pretty serious. The reason I ask is I saw Craig Breen on instagram going to collect his system.

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???
