    Why not have a talk with Petter and Pernilla they have good practice from rally and rallycross at world championship level at 110%. They are good at building a team and have people love their team.

    Well to lighten up all the doom in this thread we have so far not seen any clear speed/drivability issues (over more than a few stages).

    So it is possible that the car can still be very good. Question might be how long it takes and whether Hyundai commits the necessary resources, gives up, or tries to run things half-way.

    Thinking about how Hyundai vs Toyota looked in first half of 2017 (Hyundai clearly best) vs 2018/2019 (Toyota definitely best).

    It won't work with Oliver in the same team.
    After watching the "Team Solberg" reality/documentary from last year it was clear that Petter made all kind of mess in that role, seemingly mostly due to the struggles between father role and other roles and first when he was "kicked" after Greece/Finland it improved.

    The mere fact that Petter and Pernilla can't even leave their little darling alone for recce proves that he has little to no idea of what would be required for running a team with over 200 staff and a significant budget. How's oliver's career going, eh?

    HMSG is a business. And a very large one.

    It's clear he's not even doing a very good job of managing his son.....

    IMO they have to go all-in if they're to have any hope of challenging Toyota. If not they may as well quit asap.

    Although his car was later disqualified, it was a very very emotional Oliver Solberg when he took the win at the Euro RX1 in Holjes.

    "Its been so hard. Finally, FINALLY, a win ! "

    Sounds promising for the future of the team staying in the WRC.
