Let him become stable in that one first. History is full of examples about jumping into a wrc too early, even when one has mastered the r5.

Katsuta very impressive in Sweden, hard to know exactly how much advantage the Pirellis gave him.. still you can’t go fast and reliable just by choosing the right tyre brand.
Huttunen also set some impressive times given his lack of R5 experience.

Also, he was able to keep it together leading for the whole rally, the pressure of the previous year champion breathing down his neck. The Pirellis sure helped but still very impressive.

It has been said that more Yaris WRC's will be available for money. That's what Nasser is doing. Juho doesn't have the money, and it's not worth the effort to give him a fourth car. And like said, let Katsuta do well in a whole WRC2 season, then see how he does in a WRC car. I'm sure the Toyota bosses are anxiously waiting for him to step up to the main level, but it's still a long way there.

Hat off for Katsuta! Beating Tidemand in Sweden is an amazing achievement. Hope he'll manage to show a good pace also on the gravel events.

Tyre advantage is a contentious point. I think M-Sport might find that Evans’ seemingly stunning individual performances last year were due to a DMACK advantage in certain events. I thought they should have trialed his real pace in a Michelin shod car before giving him a full season in the main team.

Great news! It took a while to see Ciamin confirmed in WRC2. He’s one of the best young French drivers. Fingers crossed for him!

Benito Guerra jr has said on WRC All live that he won't be doing Rally Argentina as obviously he was using the same car that he was to use in Mexico, but he will now be doing Rally Australia in addition to the European rounds.

Bulacia unfortunately not better than Heller, but Kalle Rovanperä is completely flying!
