    Not sure if Mikkelsen over Loeb in Finland is a great choice by Hyundai. Only if Andreas discover great car settings and finds good feeling with the car on fast roads in Estonia, otherwise he has always been terrible there.

    Well, not convincing numbers, when you add the experience with the specific car...

    I don't think it's Hyundai's choice. If Loeb has made anything clear about his 2019 campaign, it's that he's not interested in doing Finland.

    This story has not ended. First we´ll have to see what result comes out from Finland. Knowing Adamo´s mind he well could bring other drivers, Paddon included. Paddons comment today only showed his frustration not being talked to. Let´s wait and see. Speculations at this moment what will happen, is worthless.

    The April fools comment says a lot if you think about it. He is obviously very bitter and upset. I think Paddon thinks his allegiance to Hyundai NZ carries some weight with Hyundai WRT, but it's obvious they could care less about his rallying ventures outside of the WRC.

    It might be a good time to move on and start aggressively working on a drive with other teams. April fools already took place when he was offered one event... It's July now.

    Imho he should have done it already but seats are very few and it's not easy especially if you don't pay to drive.
    We don't know what brought Adamo to chose for Breen over him so maybe his rage is understandable but for sure it will not be of any help to him to make it public.

    I will say my comments are nothing against @Craig_Breen and I wish him all the best for the rally! Naturally - I am dissapointed that we weren’t considered

    Comments from paddon in the comments of the article from wrc in facebook:

    Oisin Sherlock we didn’t get offered nothing

    Andrew Little yes it has always been media speculation. We have been talking to them last 2 months trying to do this rally

    I don't know how to post the screenshot, sorry.

    Sounds more and more like he wanted some larger package than just one rally. Can't see why they would pick Breen over him if he agreed on a one rally deal tbh.

    He wasn’t considered...
    Enough for me to understand.
