    Group N was still a thing back then, as well as private WRC cars.

    Pontus debut performance and the speed he showed at Rally Sweden 2013 in a WRC car was far more impressive than a mediocre outing at Rally Sweden 2019 - 6 years of difference

    I think for Pontus it is a confidence issue adapting to the new WRC spec car... but IMHO there is a long list of drivers above him in the peaking order who deserve a manufacturer seat more

    Fast drivers yes, in WRC2. Not even WRC2 champions. So unwritten chapters. Might as well end up in confidence issues them as well...

    Agree PT has that "problem" together with all other factors well described here on this topic.
