    Wow, you nailed it! That is actually exactly what he said.

    I repeat myself but I don’t think either that Kalle is ready for WRC next year. He should and could do at least two good years of WRC2 first and still be ahead of anyone else at his age

    Who hobbyist was faster than Kalle and where?

    So you are forum king who decides who can post in which forum sections? Please get a grip man. And calling someone stupid just because he has a different point of view. Quite lame and you're not the first finn recently who has "lost their heads" in the arguement. You're not in a position to demand here anything, quite clearly are you mistaken about your role here.

    For sure Rovanpera has talent, no doubt about it. But people are blinded by his age, which means nothing. It's experience that counts.
    We have seen a lot of young guys in the past, storming trough cups, JWRC and even wrc2 but never got to a decent WRC level.
    So, he has to prove in the next year(s) he has what it takes to get to WRC level.
    I'm not saying he is not going to make it, but imo it's still too early to tell
    Spot on!

    I’m personally a bit amazed that they hired Nordgren so quickly, to me he hasn’t really shown anything or been quick on even national level, whereas Kalle blew all the Finnish champions out of the water right away.

    Well, the Sumava Klatovy result was good for his little tarmac experience.

    For example:
    https://www.ewrc-results.com/final/2...hampions-2016/
    https://www.ewrc-results.com/final/3...ti-ralli-2017/ +40 sec. for considerably shortening a stage.
    https://www.ewrc-results.com/final/2...-kurzeme-2016/ A bit old and can`t exactly remember, if it was an issue-free rally or not.

    Then there are other youngsters, a bit higher level than hobby-drivers, who have beaten him or been more or less equal.


    Like said, from the age of seven he has had the best available equipment, even quit school for rallying. Logical, but yet to show if he is not just young and "stupid", not afraid of crashes and he can develop into a title contender. And people already want him to be replace Latvala in a team with a goal to get the manu. title.

    To me it looks like Kalle was always fastest in his class. WRC, Proto and custom built cars can’t compare against R5 and S2000
