I also read it as the 3 current drivers in the team, Paddon not included in the 3.

I understand that he meant that the 3 drivers currently in the team were complaining about the car, and if Loeb says the same it will be 4. I'm not sure why the team seem reluctant to change the car, they only have to go and stand out on the stages and watch it on dry tarmac and they would surely see the same as the rest of us.

Doubled 1978 is on the money. Nueville is saying they have complained to the engineers and the engineers do not believe them. If the almighty (Loeb) also complains then the engineers will listen. This is the exact scenario which took place with Citroen and the gang. When the almighty speaks... people listen.

if the engineers don't listen to their star driver neuville who has done 7 season, or to sordo who has done 12, why would they listen to loeb?
i doubt that the engineers not listening really is the case, but if it is actually true they all should be fired on the spot.

I think the main problem with the hyundai is the very fragile component between the seat and the wheel... i mean a component that breaks while having a 25+ point lead and just fails on superspecials while leading by a safe margin is unacceptable for any professional team... my suggestion to the hyundai team is to get rid of that component as soon as possible we already have a natural born loser in latvala in the sport.

the problem is that there is no better alternative for that component. they had twice the chance to hire ogier, but they failed.

Reality is that there is only 1 driver who did better last 5-6 years. Neuville has been 2nd behind Ogier in the championship 4 times.
If you continue that way of thinking, you need to sack everybody but Ogier?

Yep, Neuville is a great driver but if he’s really complaining about the i20 development it’s a shame to be talking to the press (just like Meeke did in Citroen); internal issues should be discussed in house, not in public.
Anyway, it seems he has understood that Loeb will be there mainly to help Hyundai getting the manus title; next year even Neuville may have to put the team interests above his personal targets.

Manufacturer's will be the priority for sure. They need a Title for all the money they've put in so far.
Neuville's best two chances have gone.
