    Any french speaking french can make an assumption of what he says?

    I understood these things:

    Some people said that he has wasted a one life chance last year but he thinks that he has many more chances in the future

    He expects Loeb to make me pass ahaed of him if needed since he is not aiming for championship.

    He said nothing special about Adamo (but maybe he did, please confirm).

    He wouldn't change anything about his approach of last year because he did good.

    Add something because my french is bad.

    About Adamo: he says he is happy that "they" listened to the drivers who wanted a change in the technical departement and management. Last year, when something happened, it was never somebody's fault and in the end nothing changed. The car was equal on pace in the beginning of the year but felt behind in the 2nd half, that has to be changed.
    About Toyota: we need to catch up quickly, to avoid a "VW dominance". Toyota exploited the 2018 rules concerning the testing around their own base to test more before Monte than other teams. That should be better this year.
    About updates: no updates yet, but he hopes to have them from Corsica onwards.
    About Loeb: he prefers to have him in his team than in another team. And certainly didn't want him helping Ogier. Loeb is there to help the team, not to help him. He hopes his experience will help devellop the car. But he does say that he expects him to pull over and switch positions if they are 1 and 2. But that will be Huyndai's decision.

    That should be the most important

    Andreas basically saying he will try another driving style, leave the car set up as is and see what happens.. lol. I'm sure this is good news for Paddon...

    If 2016 Latvala is anything to go by, this won't end well.

    Neuville/Sordo style in i20 on tarmac meant 3-5th place at best in 2018.
    But not like he has much choice when close to no changes were done to the car on tarmac to suit him.

    Realy wonder what happens once Loeb drives the car on dry tarmac (Corsica +).

    Anyway what does Mikkelsen's terrible pace on tarmac have to do with Paddon? You mean they drop Mikkelsen on tarmac rounds and let Paddon, who never did any good on tarmac drive? If anything they would put Sordo on same rounds as Loeb.

    But changes were at least made to the car in general before Spain. Both Neuville and Sordo commented that the car felt a lot better and easier to drive, especially in the drier conditions. Mikkelsen then went and produced one of the most horrible performances I've seen from a top driver, getting beat by R5s on a full length stage etc. Hyundai belatedly made a positive step and it still didn't help Mikkelsen, in fact he was worse than ever.

    So ofcourse Hyundai aren't going to homologate new upgrades just for Andreas when Neuville and Sordo are happier with the last set of changes. That's why Mikkelsen knows he either has to adapt or he's out of the team.
