    I had the same thought a while ago. It probably depends on a few things, notably, if Hyundai can accommodate a test between when that may be and when his original test is planned for and more likely, just how far off the lead he is. Even if he's running fourth, what's to say the others in front won't have the same issues he has had.

    I don't think his sponsors would agree in giving up after such investment and probably he himself also.

    True but it depends how far back he falls. He wont get much coverage if he's not in with a chance to win. Plus he's not a Manu backed entry.

    70% sand dunes must advantage the Arab drivers this year, plus of course those with many years of experience. I dont see Loeb in contention for the win.

    Monte Carlo is his area of expertise.
