    its obvious that something is wrong in Hyundai 4,5 years with no results, Even top brass has admitted that. And Factory doesnt care about some odd rally wins here and there , they want titles

    Neuville has been right up there last two seasons. They have room to develop, all of them do. Most of the results can be explained with lineups.

    Not really. Hyundai does not have a single podium from Finland and never had podium pace there either.

    This year none of the drivers had top speed on tarmac even though 3 of them have won tarmac rallies before.

    .. on top of that they still have reliability issues and lost 2 cars that were leading Turkey due to mistakes made by mechanics.

    Lineup is quite down the list of main issues imo.

    They built pretty much big company from scratch and are succesfull right now. Not have any of the WRC titles yet but are working on it. But what if they were dominant right now, if that would be good for the sport and other manus? (like VW in their days). Look at the battles at every rally and all cars are pretty much fast everywhere. Drivers are fast pretty much everwhere. I'm talking about seconds between them or less on 15km stages. That's pretty insane for a normal people. It's all about challenges, commitment and battles between all.

    Yes, because being the last WRC on tarmac, when ones teammate is second or atleast fighting for the podium ( ADAC and RACC) really aren`t the indicator of drivers...its just learning for over a year.... They all have reliability issues, M-Sport maybe less...Toyota offered plenty of chances to grab the manuf. title, with Tšnak out several times and Latvala also.

    Changes have already been made and hearing promising things for the handling of the car, lets just hope it won't be a VW domination all over again because that car should dominate now really.

    Saying one team has made changes and will dominate in December, 1.5 half a months before a rally (where the car doesn`t have to dominate at all really)? And to think that Toyota and Citroen, both with top drivers and good developers are sleeping?

    Bwahaha, seriously?
