    weather is extremely unstable right now, so forecast now is a bit pointless, if you look probablility maps, then we can expect 1-45 cm snow during next one week Only sure thing is that it will be unstabe, that means some strong wind, some snowstorm, some rain, some snow, rapid temperature fluctuation. So, please take very windproof clothes and be ready for wet snow and cold

So Mikkelsen is in a superb position to take advantage, and we know the Hyundai was supremely fast here last season. Difficult to tell what Paddon can do and where his mind is, but he also has a great start position. After losing places on the last stage in Monte, Lappi could be a dark horse as well and along with Mikkelsen, will be thinking he could make a bit of a gap on day 1 if things go well.

    absolutely agreed...thats why i dont agree that Toyota guys will definitely win because their starting position is a disadvantage. Last year Neuville was 8th on the road on day one and he had a 28 sec lead after the day and 43 sec lead on day 2 before he binned it.

    Although Ogier - Latvala - Tänak started as the first three on the road and they did actually quite good being 5th, 2nd and 3rd respectively after day one.

    So, my money is definitely on Mikkelsen/Neuville and Lappi being the dark horse.

    Agreed, but I would pick Paddon as the dark horse. He did some great times last year when his power steering was working, and finished 2nd in 2016. It's more of a mystery what Lappi can do, alongside Suninen and Østberg .

    Yes, Paddon too if he has regained his old form

    and you never know with the Hyundai guys, Mikkelsen and Neuville on the paper but they tend to do some little mistakes which turn out to be costly or then the car has some issues...

    My guess is a big lead for Mikkelsen after day 1 and Ostberg and Henning Solberg pretty high in the standings after day 1!

    3 pages of Pickem so far and not once Ogier has been picked as winner. Must be the first it happens in years!

    One dark Horse in Rally Sweden and very good starting position on friday stages..
    Teemu Suninen Racing
    @TeemuSuninenRac
    We’ve just completed some good test kilometres in Northern Sweden. It would be amazing to challenge for a podium again. Perhaps that is a realistic goal for @RallySweden

    2016 was with older car. To say the truth, Paddon had problems to be fast with new WRC cars.
