    I would say their car was only the fastest in the first half of 2017. In the second half they seemed all pretty equally, but citroen and toyota did not have a good leading driver.

    By the end of 2018, the hyundai was perhaps the slowest car. Or at least it looked like that to me.

    In 2017 JML would have been right in the mix had the Yaris not let him down in Poland and Finland. So that year it was the car, not the driver.

    yes it was. to me i looks that the toyota was just as fast back then as it is today. if ogier had been in that car he probably would have been champion too, but with more points and more wins.

    Latvala missed out on at least 15 points in Poland, 25 points in Finland and had the chance of at least 10 points in Germany when he was forced to retire. Don't forget he led the championship that year and was a firm title contender. His only mistakes all year were the roll in Portugal and the PS in Australia.

    The Yaris had, likely, the best engine that year, and was very quick on fast roads, but while it was durable despite it's electrical Gremlins it was a little heavy.
