    He's definitely struggling mentally, but dare I say he's managing his demons? He's controlling this rally quite well, which I'm quite surprised to see since he's uncomfortable with he car.

    I’m guessing there are some serious phone calls on Monday from Japan to Tommi...

    They will fix this fragile problems. It's not like Citrons when they rather axe the driver than fixing the car (and I'm not talking about Meeke). Breen do the 99 work last year and still being treated like shit.

    do not think so... the mistake was they hired that failed production car manager int he first place... the fact that the team is made up by 70% of his friends shows a lot.

    He is nothing and they get what they deserve from his village skills...

    Last year's Yaris was built like a tank. But to make it more competitive, they've been trying to lighten everything more and more so they can play around with ballast. And the original designer, Simon Carrier, left the team last year, so I don't know who's really making the design decisions. The former #2 designer, Kevin Postec? Regardless, it seems like they've gone a little too far in the direction of lightness at the moment.

    Tänak and Järveoja saying the same thing and Latvala also mentioned it in Portugal, saying that the car is faster this year but with compromises.

    Ott is very strict and says that the car shouldnt break every time after jumps and going over the rocks. Järveoja saying ironically that they must have a radiator and a powerbank in the car all the time

    Tommi has promised that there will be changes but it all depends also on jokers. They tried to make the underbody protection stronger between Portugal and Sardegna but in the end kept the current one.


    and btw did you guys saw Ogier going over a humongous rock on SS16? the rock was twice the size what Tänak had in Portugal. I was sure that now it is over for Ogier but in the finish line you could only see some scratches on the Fiesta.
