    Here's hoping they take it for a run up the hill at the Goodwood FoS!

    If Hänninen doesn't get any rallying action before Rally Finland he will most likely be rusty and not on the pace. We saw in 2017 it took half a season for him to found his pace and consistency. Also, he would need a new co-driver.

    He hadn`t been competing for a long time+ was ill with longlasting side effects. But yes, one can say these are the reasons not to compete. On the plus side, it would be his home event and he did it in 2017, quite well also.

    Rally Finland Clerk of the Course Kai Tarkiainen talking about shortening the rallies. He wants to keep the endurance element. Also, if rallies are shortened, he would prefer driving from Thursday to Saturday over Friday to Sunday. Also, he says Tour de Corse is the rally that is most keen on arranging a shorter rally already next year.

    There's also talk about the Rally Finland route which is published near the end of February or begin of March. Less chicanes than last year, some new roads.

    TdC already only has 10 stages. There's awfully little to take away.

    TDC is already one of the most pointless events in the calendar, in (a distant) spectators point of view. They already have RMC, based in France...would prefer to see another event or a more normal version of TDC.

    12 this year. Maybe they would like to have the same length event but on a tighter schedule, so we could have more of the marathon stages in one day?
