    Excellent piece by David Evans giving the historical context of Toyota's previous WRC team and cars.

    Kind of puzzled tbh. Aren't Tanak and Latvala more than good indicators? Going by both of them Yaris was similar to the other cars in first half of 2018, faster on most surfaces in second half.

    As written in the interview the only place they seem to struggle is rough gravel (Turkey, Sardinia, Portugal) where they have to go with more "safe" setup that gives less traction. (or alternatively you could say that the "normal" gravel setup is too risky - ref. GB where they were on the sumpguard on ever other corner).

    Meeke is not really a candidate for a stable (performance wise) driver; when everything works (or he risks) he is top3, when not 8+. Also C3 before/during multiple changes is not a good reference.

    Toyota grew into a dominant force with an outstanding roster of drivers, inventive engineers and a spectacular resource from the mothership.

    History, it appears, is about to repeat itself.
    How can he write that article without even mentioning Toyota's most memorable inventive engineering?
    Talking about history repeating itself just begs the question.

    Quite. I found it amusing that the history lesson stopped in 1994, before the real engineering inventiveness really began!

    Because you only have limited amount of space for history recollection in a story that is primarily about the upcoming season. Selective? Could be, but let's also note that the story didn't mention the Corolla WRC either, which undeniably would have to be considered as a success story.

    Very rare that an article written today would have even a hint of criticism of a team if the journalist wants any more access and free lunches in hospitality. Read a book recently that was an official history of the Citroen rally team and it didn't even feature a picture of the BX 4TC so Evans was hardly going to mention Toyota's turbos was he?!
