    Every time i seen Haydon Paddon drive in the wrc his car was damaged...too many accidents and poor times leads to losing your seat...

    11 years in wrc and wins a single rally...

    Dont really think Paddon has much to shout about.

    In this situation this is unfair. While he was slowest Hyundai for most of 2018 he had one rally where he clearly was the fastest of them all....Finland.

    So when a different driver that never drove the car and is not an established rally winner gets a single start in Finland instead of him, it is normal that people (including me) find it strange.

    What potential drivers next year? Will they hire 3 more guys for each rally one. The problem is not in drivers and their rotation. It's the car they need to work at. Fire the useless engineers and a few key people and hire some who have been in WRC for a long time. They are running out of time. When Toyota will resolve their issues they will be unstopabble with Tanak on it. And then they won't have a chance of a single title.

    Breen seems like a sensible choice. He is match-fit and has done well in Finland in the past.

    But what’s the deal with Huttunen? Is he in or out with Hyundai? I thought he had been driving some events in a Hyundai World Rally Car and I see he is in Poland this weekend with an i20 R5.

    That is what I was wondering too.
    It's a pity they're giving space to every driver possibile but not considering a future promise. I get that they're going all in for this year manufacturers at least but they are completing messing their longterm involvement

    I repeat again - with Huttunen remaining a guest driver they get more testing days for the whole team

    That's a quite sad reason

    It is, but I can’t argue with the logic from Adamo really. If they believe Huttenen is fast and they can use him as a test driver without using up test days by not starting him in a WRC event, then it’s in their interests to do so.
    I would have liked to have seen him the 3rd car in Finland for sure, but now the reasons for him not are becoming apparent, I can’t argue with it.

    Their long term involvement depends on them wining a championship
