    Michelin are good only on dry tarmac. Frenchies just don't go out for testing in bad conditions.

    Perhaps the jwrc and historic drivers should start to complain that their cars don't fit in the ruts that the wrc cars make.

    Interesting hearing Petter Solbergs comments after Sweden on WRC+.

    He was delighted with WRC+, but remained very coy about whether we will see him return to the WRC in a one off event again (even if it was just to be in the R5 polo).

    Can hear the admiration he has for how calculated and clever Seb is, but also acknowledged that Thierry has been so fast for over a year now. He sounded really impressed with Breen too, and although it wasn't great from a Norwegian perspective, said Mikkelsen had no answer to Breen' s pace on what was effectively Andreas' home rally. Also led him onto the point that it's very difficult for Breen now having to miss rallies, when he'll be full of confidence and wanting to build on this performance. Certainly another one who wasn't keen on seeing Breen benched for Loeb, pointing out that Breen is the future and if Citroen want to put Loeb in a car, don't do it at the expense of Breen. Do it with a 3rd car or not at all.

    I felt Petter was also a bit harsh on his brother . Saying he'd find it hard to do a WRC round like his brother, and be so far off the pace

    As an explanation for Henning being further off pace than normal in sweden, he said that the engine had been cheating most of the rally, he had to nurture it for it not to die, and that he could not get full power out of bends, but had to gradually feed the power.
    So something wrong the mechs did not figure out.

    Even with limited testing, Henning would in normal circumstances be closer to the front in Sweden than he was.

    He has given himself two weeks to figure out his plans for the season.
