    But what is the point for all this debate? Where you imagine to reach with that?

    It's like religious fight - you can fight however much, all parties still believe their own stuff.

    Let his stage times from GB speak.

    Spot on. No one should blame Tidemand for trying, but running on a limited budget is probably the main reason for such a slow pace; his past drives in WRC cars and R5 domination have shown he’s able to do better. Fingers crossed on his GB outing.

    If you can't afford to break it, you shouldn't drive it.

    I doubt its lack of budget that limits his speed. If that was the case it would have been better to drive only 2 rally's flatout, instead of 3 without being able to push.

    Well, easy to say from your computer. Sooo much more ingredients in his efforts.

    Personally I just want to see him show some speed, have another guy that can fight for stage wins etc..
    Obviously I’m not privy to what his budget is, and what his plan beyond Wales is, but at the moment I don’t really see what he is achieving with his outings so far.

    Speed certainly hasn't been there. Let's see in Wales

    Is it possible that the current generation of cars are harder to drive competitively? The aero and diff complexity would need decent testing past the limits to get used to, and if you don't have the benefit of being able to afford a heap of testing like Greensmith, well I can only imagine he is having to learn how to drive on event, which will certainly hurt performance.

    I was however expecting more from him, especially on Sunday of any WRC event, as lets face it the WRC is a joke on Sunday with only 1 competitive stage, so perfect time for him to make at least 1 good stage time.

    Well, Suninen's and Lappi's early success in 2017 prove otherwise.
