    and as you know, results of the past are in no way a guarantee for the future. who would have believed last year that loeb would be beaten by sordo in corsica and spain?
    perhaps mikkelsen would have won in spain, perhaps sordo would have won in finland. nobody can tell for sure.

    Another story of Tänak-Toyota relationship was published in the Estonian media today:
    https://ekspress.delfi.ee/kuum/ralli...mi?id=87963009

    Nothing new really, except that according to this story, Markko Märtin was called "isovittu" ("big cu*t") by some Finns in Toyota, due to his hard negotiations.

    I wouldn't say that the "nickname" is anything special, when it comes to difficult negotiations. Only thing is that it has got out of the inner circle.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    Having been involved in quite a few negotiations in Finland, I must admit I've never heard anyone being called "isovittu" before. One does not get that title just because of tough negotiations. I'd say it tells more about losing respect than just being tough.

    What I love the most about this, is how Finnish Ilta-Sanomat tried to get hold of Tommi to confirm did they actually called Märtin with this name. I would love to hear the wording of the journalist when asking this from Tommi :-)

    Season to launch at the Autosport show again: https://www.autosport.com/asi/news/1...-season-launch

    Still feels crazy to me, having the whole WRC circus turn up 15 minutes drive from where I live!

    Maybe something along the lines of

    Tommi: Mitäääää?

    Journalist: Se on Mauri Mopo Ilta-Sanomista tässä terve! Tommi, kuultiin luotettavasta lähteestä että annoitte Märtinille hellittelynimen "Iso Vittu" kun Tänakin sopimusneuvottelut alkoivat mennä päin persettä. Vahvistatko?

    Tommi: *ends the call*

    Journalist: *writes that he couldn't get hold of Tommi*
