    Hyundai WRT

    Hyundai WRT does not have own thread like the other teams.

    Do they have a plan of using 4 WRC cars, or maybe promote the R5 with two drivers alternating on using R5 and WRCar in 17?

    I think they have a winning car, but Paddon's performance is not what they expected. Also, I guess they have concerns about Newville's reliability. In short, they need another top driver to get the points they need. My guess is 4 WRC cars.

    I agree Abbring was already out of the current Hyundai picture, but a switch to Touring Cars appears to make it final. Plus the fact they are having Mikkelsen test also put another nail in the coffin...

    He posted a short gif of being behind the wheel of a Hyundai WRC on his Instagram this tuesday, so he is still doing some work there.

    Paddon said in Colin Clark's Kitchen Table Shakedown interview that the new car is more adjusted to Neuville's driving style, which doesn't suit Paddon's style and he's still struggling with that. Changing his driving style didn't work but he's trying to set up the car to suit his style. Does anyone know what's the main difference between these guys' styles?

    It's becoming more and more obvious that those WRC17 cars are not so easy to "adjust" and match driver's preferences. I guess it's going to take a while before everyone find its comfortable and fast enough settings.
