    Do you have some link to stagetimes? I couldn't find any.

    After a horrible last year in the slow and unreliable R5 it would be nice if he does well vs Katsuta in his first start in a car that is probably a bit worse on Finnish stages.

    David Evans article on Hyundai drivers for Finland. My pick is Neuville, Mikkelsen and Huttunen. However if Mikkelsen has poor Sardinia I think Paddon will be injected back into the team!

    Paddon already said he does not want to do one event... Maybe if they offer him 2-3 events he might reconsider?

    The Finland problem is a relatively minor one, as no matter the driver I don't expect them to suddenly do well after so many years without a single podium.

    The real problems if Loeb does not want to do more rallies are GB, AUS, TUR for Sordo (hasn't never done well in GB, didn't drive AUS the last years and never drove the new Turkey) and one of the two tarmac rallies for Mikkelsen.

    Paddon is clearly the best candidate for those 4 gravel rallies either with Mikkelsen or could keep switching them. For tarmac Breen is about the only possible candidate but based on Loeb's performance in Corsica where he was even one place worse than Mikkelsen the year before I don't see it as very likely that they try another driver. Maybe if Loeb does Germany with good result they will try really hard to convince him to do Spain.

    Katsuta has quite lot more kilometres in a WRC car under the belt.

    Have to say I was disappointed with Huttunen's performance. Yes, it was his first competitive outing in a World Rally Car, but still. That wasn't Meeke in that Yaris he was competing against. And that's not to take anything away from Katsuta. A clean and solid drive, well deserved victory for him.

    I guess mr. Adamo's headache about the third i20 WRC for Finland didn't get any better today...
