    Pontus Tidemand [SWE]

    What you think about Pontus future? With so many young guns appearing like Suninen, Lappi, Kalle, Huttunen,.... He will reach WRC top class?

    I like how you mention everyone else with their surnames expect Kalle =D
    Pontus is actually in a really bad spot currently, he desperately needs to get away from R5's to at least get some WRC seat time for next year or he is going to be surpassed and forgotten in a year or two.
    But when your managers son is doing fine in wrc 2 and most of the focus is probably on him, Pontus must feel the pressure.
    I personally would like to see Pontus having a go on wrc but there is just way too many drivers for just so little amount of cars.

    IMHO he hasn't shown any progress in last two years. I am afraid he will follow P-G Andersson's path.

    Yes, Veiby is climbing. Another problem is Mikkelsen, that is the priority for 2018 season for EvenManagement right now. Unfortunatelly i have to agree with Mirek. At least PG had Suzuki ahah

    Let´s wait and see progress from the young guns. However it doesn´t look so good for PT. Then we have Oliver S in a few years ...

    When I search for "Kalle" in ewrc-results, this is what I got (drivers only):

    Haven't his progress been pretty equal with Lappi over their WRC-2 years? For me it seems so at least, and the Veiby will have the exact same progress as well. Looks like they are all going through just the same programme, and also managing to get the same progress.

    I wasn't that convinced about Paddon and Breen neither, they seems to have been stuck in a lower class as well. But suddenly, they got their chance and did pretty good.

    I don't think so because there aren't enough sponsors willing to support a WRC drive for him which is the same issue as
    for most other Swedish motorsport drivers (except Ekström and Marcus Eriksson).
    ...Funny how ev'rything was roses when we held on to the guns...
