    Neuville, Bouffier and Abbring are the clear favorites. Princen and Verschueren, the Belgian contenders should follow closely. Cherain, Fernémont are behind that, together with Yates and Cronin, best BritishRC driver last year. Curious to see what Veiby can do (I think he will crash...)

    After seeing Veiby in Sardegna I said the same. He’ll probably won’t make it till the end.

    Ypres is very specific event. It is difficult to find how to drive there correctly - to be fast, but stay on the road. Especially if you are a driver with ambitions...

    But on the other hand Veiby was surprisingly good in his first Czech event. For sure better than Hänninen many years before him - and Hänninen won Ypres fair and square after some trying

    Cronin looked quick in his PET and he will want to get a good result on his favourite surface.

    Edwards may play safe and just try for a sure finish and good pts.

    Yates could do well but its a big ask with his experience.

    I think that Cronin will be good. He did very good last year and now it will be his second start there and that counts a lot.

    He's also on Michelin this year as opposed to D mack last year which will be a major advantage on asphalt

    Maybe switch all Ypres Rally discussions to 1 topic, in the Belgian Rally topic?

    Great to meet the current @OfficialWRC leader and @HMSGOfficial "teammate" (aherm) @thierryneuville here in Belgium last night.

    After sharing a test with him yesterday, we can confirm he can drive.. https://t.co/g7J4aCRNVI
