    but he has (almost) never driven Yaris WRC in tarmac, so Germany and Catalonia sounds bit weird.
    is there not a loophole where they switch the driver and the co-driver on the official entry list, but let the driver do the actual driving?

    or is there also a restriction on the number of rally's a codriver can do?

    By doing that you would make the co-driver earn the points

    Oh and that little argument about Alonso remaining in TGR, but doing else thsn circuit. Leaves Dakar and WRC, which is said to be the training for the first one.

    It doesn´t matter because Katsuta has done his own maximum 7 events.

    With that co-driver switch they would get that P2 status and better starting position.

    I think he could still enter the events in WRC2, but won't score points and still have P2 priority.

    "8.4.4 The WRC 2 Champion titles for Drivers and Co-Drivers will be awarded to the driver and co-driver who have scored the highest number of points from 6 of the first 7 rallies which they have entered to score points. In the remaining rallies they may neither score nor detract points from other registered drivers."

    not emotional this time but my point is the same. The problems are just endless, so far i think they havent even had one single rally without problems, its ridiculous on this level.

    Maybe they should also change the team principal like Hyundai did? i dont know....

    i know i will be thrown with rocks after the next sentence by Latvala and Meeke fans but they havent just delivered. Yes, i know that often this is because of the car but the fact that they havent got even ONE SINGLE podium after half the season isnt good enough, while all the drivers from other teams have been on podium at least once. Even Lappi who is having a nightmare season so far.

    They are trailing Hyundai now almost by 50 points.


    A lot of thinking for Mäkinen or Mr.Toyoda on summer break about those things.

    Even take this rally... if Meeke's wheel hadnt failed, he was on course the take Mikkelsen and Evans... then Tanak has his problem, Meeke could have been on podium.. thats how it goes
