    Because everything else is even further, they all work to be better, especially those with the budget and good development drivers, yet You are claiming NOW, on 14.12.18 that TODAY Hyundai is already good enough to dominate next season.

    Rumor has it Loeb looked at a pic of the Hyundai and told the group over the phone "add two degrees caster in front and 1 degree toe in at the rear and all should be good"... wallah!!

    Right from the beginning Neuville saw Paddon as a threat rather than as a team mate. I have seen it happen on an event first hand.

    Lets hope Mikkelsen and Loeb gets a tough training camp, with 10 hr driving for a week, so they know the car so well so it becomes a part of them! And also the engineer of their choice, so communication netween driver and tech staff improves.

    perhaps up until 2016, when paddon was only 22 points down on neuville. i doubt he sees him as any kind of threat nowadays, since they're clearly on a different level.

    Not so. Paddon is well capable of matching Neuville on the stages when permitted the opportunity to do so. So no change in that regard.
    But it's a lesson Paddon perhaps should've learned early in the programme.

    Let's write it again, this time even more clear: All 3 Hyundai drivers won WRC rounds before.
    So Let's look on the 2/3 of the team that you skipped over so fast.
    Neuville won Corsica in 2017 and both him and Sordo were fighting for win in Germany in 2017 and Sordo was also in Spain.

    This year Neuville was 5th or 6th (if you count Lappi) fastest on pace in Corsica, lucky to manage 3rd with both Citroens crashing. In Germany none had top 2 pace and again Neuville got really lucky with Ogier puncture and Latvala and Sordo out. In Spain they were 6th and 7th in speed, and both lost to Evans whom they easily beat in Corsica.

    Their 5 year long lack of pace in Finland is something you ignored completely. "Doesn't suit the car" is what they say.

    But yeah driver lineup is the main issue that they need to work on...

    Think that you will find that now they have the Paddon transmission option available that the car will be a lot better performed on the faster stages.
