    It’s not even half past nine in the UK and you are high on crack.
    I guess it is the festive season.

    Scenario - nearing the end of 2019 season - if one or more of the 2019 Hyundai rally driving team has been scoring inconsistently during the year, yet Hyundai are still in with a chance of gaining the manufacturer's title, do they add a fourth car for the later rounds with both Sordo and Loeb? or another driver?
    Going by how their 2018 season ended.

    No.
    - 3/4 of the drivers or more in all teams "score incosistently", Tänak did that as well with multiple wins then 3x out. Sordo too with good points the crash out in Germany. Latvala's first half of the season is the definition of inconsistency.

    - Don't think they are so keen on 4 drivers after Portugal this year where the 2 nominated drivers dropped due to crash (Paddon) and car issues (Mikkelsen) and Sordo ending 4th was pretty pointless for them

    - Looking at this season they lost manu title due to issues that had little to do with drivers (2 cars out from 1st place in Turkey due to faults by mechanics, all 3 cars out of pace with bad setup in GB on friday), the pace of the 2 fastest cars on each rally was actually quite close to each other in second part of season

    And how many were they offered by others? Portugal-Ogier and Tänak out, though there Neuville used his chance, Tänak out due to the same issue 4 times, from first or podium position. Tyre in RACC, still ahead of Mikkelsen...Wales, Neuville making a mistake etc. If they see the chance, then for sure they will go for a 4. car (when they can`t ditch Mikkelsen or Sordo or who ever on that round for example), because others are just as hungry.

    "Yes, all 14."

    "It was a very easy decision because we have the contract and we want to respect the contract."

    After reading that article about Mikkelsen and Hyundai, it appears to me that he did get legal advice on his contract to ensure he still had a 14 round season in 2019. Unless he has an amazing season he will not be in Hyundai in 2020.

    Paddon back in 2020... unless they find another rising star who is killing it. Shame to be honest...

    I hope Andreas comes out guns blazing. A 5-10 place result and more "car" issues won't keep him on the team for 2020.
