    Paddon not competing on tarmac events will hurt him big time IMO. It is his weakest point anyway and when you cant compete on tarmac rallies and gain experience it will make it even worse.

    We WILL have a full-time presence in WRC next season as a tyre supplier, our eighth season.

    “Our focus on winning the world championship remains absolute, but what we need next year is a season of development and reconnection with our key markets. This in no way means we’re walking away from the WRC and if we can’t find [a manufacturer] agreement then we will pick out some events and try to win those with a hired car.”

    And having breaks from competition will make it harder to get the pace at the gravel rallies.

    Indeed, Paddon must find new way to his career. Paddon and Neuville never get along very well, now Neuville has his "bestie" Mikkelsen in team, and they both show results, it's wrong place for Paddon, even he step up next season...

    Hyundai New zealand / Australia should step in.. Finance a fourth car next season.

    2018 was the year Paddon was targeting for the championship. That's not gone to plan..., but when you're in such a big budget team and don't deliver you can't have many complaints.

    Hopefully. Even Hyundai could do that themselves
