    From R. Reid:
    I always got on fine with Michel but did get the impression that Drivers in general were maybe a necessary evil to him and sometimes got in the way of the technical solutions. I’m guessing a bit now but having an engineer as Team Principle maybe doesn’t prioritise the areas of the team where the biggest gains can come from – the management and motivation of the drivers...

    well prepared and confident driver can perform miracles…
    In context of Neuville's last interview it's rather telling.

    This is an old quote of Nandan from late 206 WRC times (I read it in Czech so please pardon my translation into English):

    The drivers are those who confirm the correct choice of changes not those who select them. You can see the result yourself. With that I don't want to say that the driver is not important for the development. It's always great to have a good driver who goes always flat out and mainly all the time with same style.
    I think that many of us remember what followed shortly after this - the 307 WRC disaster. For sure Nandan brought many revolutionary technical solutions into the world of rally such as the 206 WRC with longitudinal gearbox mounted on the transversal engine but I myslef as an engineer (in different field) feel that we tend to think that we know best and in a sport which is mainly about driver's confidence there shall be someone keeping the engineer's minds on reasonable level so that the drivers stay first. Let's remmember that another engineer Willy Rampf from VW always told in his interview that the first and foremost was how the drivers felt the car.

    Finally the last piece of my puzzle are in place! All season I had a feeling that Huyndai could be/is most powerful, solid car in WRC and after visiting Finland WRC that feeling became only stronger. When I was asked from my fellows about Huyndai my answer always was - they are struggling with setups. I wrote it down to "four different drivers - four different setups" but this one above made a click for me.

    That's what made the VW team so good, from what i heard they all ran similar setups with Ogier usually just a little higher and most of the time they only had to change the high speed
