    Well I don't think Toyota performed poorly. Was it good? No, but not horrible. Lappi and Juho could not do as well as JML who set some top stage times and was close to taking 3rd until he lost some time on one stage. Lappi needs some time to get up to speed with some rallies as he lacks experience, but Tanak will be right there with JML next year.

    Evans was killing it all weekend and it would be great to see how he does on a set of Michelin's.. maybe next year.

    It's been a great season and one which I've been into from the onset.

    I guess it's on to Australia which will sadly be the most uninteresting event all year. Ogier and M-Sport have clinched the titles, the entries in AUS are weak as usual and as an AUS resident I am no longer interested in spectating as it sucks major sheeit to watch cars from a km away in the woods.

    BTW, it was weird seeing OTT celebrate M-Sport victories this weekend. He deserves every bit of it, but I think his signing to Toyota should have been announced after GB.

    Is it just me or has the Citroen and Toyota less pitch/dive than the others and not getting any weight onto the front wheels to make it turn better?

    Congrats to Ford. Ogier is a class act. i still think he was very lucky with broken disc. could have ended his rally. you can talk about skill.. but was pure luck. Hope first of many for Evans. Rumour is the DMack was 0.5s per km quicker than Michelin on this surface. If so Evans was cruising. I feel he will be Ogier team mate next year. Wonder if they can split the team DMack/Michelin.. or will DMack maybe think this is the best result they will get.. and disappear. There has been rumours for years now of money problems. I dont understand the business case for Dmack. The sale of rally tyres wouldnt cover motorsport budget.. and for all but 2/3 rallies, Evans felt the need to defend himself with the deficiency of the tyre.

    Toyota not the pace expected. Lappi especially disappointed. Just shows how much experience of this event counts.JML fog expert. Only a win would have saved Hanninen career, it didnt happen.

    Hyundai, Neuville was trying really hard to make something happen, but looked ragged. Wondering if Paddon will ever climb out of the hole he is in.

    Citroen, for no PET, Meeke done OK. Never been a strong event for Citroen. Only for spin and losing rear wing, could have been on podium. Sounding more comfortable on changable grip surface now. Bods well if it gives driver confidence. Breen flashes of some speed but expected more.

    WRC2, Rovenpera.. a lesson on hype. Hope he now takes his time. People push these ultra young guys too hard. He has 20 years rallying infront of him

    Not sure if this is a joke but apparently Wilson sent an SMS to Latvala on saturday evening asking him to "let an old man win the championship" after Latvala had been fast on the foggy stage

    He has made some solid results in the past, but this year he was just totally off the pace.

    They just mentioned Elfyn's win on BBC Radio 4.

    Sordo's car has additional branding from a sponsor on his car that didn't feature on the other Hyundai cars.

    Would say that he paid for the 4th car himself to have a chance to try to perform at a critical time for driver choice for next year.
