    Note that last year in Mexico everyone except Citroen had overheating issues.

    Ford and Hyundai with engine, on top of that Hyundai had the fuel-pump? problems on ss.
    Toyota I think both with engine and brakes overheating.

    The in-event solution from all teams was afaik to turn down the power.

    So basically we have little idea about the "normal" performance of the cars here.

    Ogier is normally doing good in Mexico. He admitted the overheating issues last year but also said that the other teams had bigger troubles. Strangely for me he was not losing much time as first car. He was constantly in top 5.

    Ogier is my favourite for the win as well. He's an expert here and not having to sweep the road is a benefit, as Friday is the longest day of the rally. But it will also come down to the car durability in the conditions. Last year all teams struggled, Citroen the least, Toyota the most, it's a bit of a question who has improved the most.

    What about an entry list? Did they not reach the 20 cars mark?

    Yes the favorites roles are almost completely reversed from Sweden.

    Ogier and Citroen go up
    - Citroen always seemed to have engine advantage in Mexico and C3 engine is supposedly also very good according to Mikkelsen after he tested 2017 Polo, I20 before Portugal and then C3.

    Toyota goes down due to least experience and issues last year. Hyundai also down due to road position for Neuville and some uncertainty about car performance.
