    Yes, it would be great from a consistency point of view, three drivers that rarely crash. Question mark over budget though, would Ogier bring redbull money, would Abu Dhabi then pull support etc. They really should be running a three car team, but on the strength of the last two seasons I have my doubts.

    Glad to read that Jari Matti got his confidence back.
    Honestly i wonder how his wife is copping living with such an emotional roller-coaster beside her!

    PS i like the car livery though.

    I have no problem with him driving. I'm only afraid of repeating last year's Catalunya when the starting order with Serderidis ahead of Kopecký virtually destroyed Kopecký's victory.

    When your self-confidence goes down you can’t come and win the next rally because first you have to build it up again and only then can you win.

    I don't see why he's a risk.

    Yeah, he has a quick car, but he's always had quick cars. He doesn't drive on the edge so as to cause much of an increased safety risk.

    Dust won’t be as much of an issue

    He is in fact less of a risk than the factory drivers that are on the edge everywhere. He will take corners a lot slower than the top drivers, so much less risk imo
