    Yes, but we still need to wait longer to see his true potential.

    Sure. But still the future looks bright. Right? We´ve seen a lot yet.

    Yes I agree.
    For me the overseas and new events are the ones that will be most interesting. On the european ones I expect him to be around 3-4 place at least after what we have seen so far.

    Before getting too carried away, we need to take into account the exceptional circumstances of rally Sweden.
    Kalle did very well, and for outright pace seems to be very competitive, but to be 3-4 placed on European events will mean beating one of the 'big three'.
    Sweden was halved in the amount of stages, with extra tyre changes. Let's see how he copes under normal circumstances before getting too excited, but for sure he will grow and be one for the future.

    One of the three will either be cleaning the road or have some issues (punctures, offs). Looking at last year the only european events where none of the 3 had issues were Portugal and GB. On the other 6 events there was always something. (Sure Rovanpera will also have issues here and there) .

    We can't really draw comparisons to last year.
    Ogier isn't in the worst car, he is in what most consider the best car.
    The Toyota has had a change of rims so we shouldn't be seeing the rim failures we saw last season. Evans has seemed to gel with the Yaris, and then we have the likes of Sordo and Loeb, as well as Neuville and Tanak at Hyundai.
    For that reason I would say placing 5-6 in those rallies would be a more realistic expectation, but the real measure will be stage times not so much final placing in rallies.

    If Evans wins the WDC will the roads of Wales be full of these like it used to be full of Subaru Impreza's ?

    Icons can't be replaced with any kind of cool or ''fascinating'' car. It just can't.
