    Looking at Loeb's tarmac pace in Hyundai and comparatively Mikkelsen's in C3 and Fabia R5 there is no doubt he would have normal pace in a normal tarmac car.

    Shut up.

    Sordo's new contract for 7 events in 2020 must confirm Hyundai will be there whatever happens this year. Good news.

    Driver contracts have NEVER stopped a manufacturer from leaving. Paying out contracts is peanuts compared to the cost of actually competing...

    Right, as long as the team is given the green light from the manufacturer, they must ensure they can continue working, and that includes contracts with drivers on the following season. Meanwhile, the manufacturer can pull the plug whenever they want. But I would still assume Hyundai has given them strong green light to start planning 2020.

    Yes, it just means they haven't decided to leave yet. Doesn't mean they can't change their mind in 2 months after Australia.

    I think we can use the old saying here: a WRC team is committed to WRC till it pulls the plug.

    I think that leaving now right before three new events comes to WRC is a stupid idea. Especially since they hve grown their bussiness a lot. Look how Hyundai have become one of the biggest concerns of automotive industry in the world. And I'm sure competing in WRC plays a huge role in it. It's understandable that they need results with so any vice champion titles already, But they will achieve it, if not this year then in coming. It would be stupid to stop now when they are closer and closer each year with experience and that. And if they would stop and then come back they need to start all over again from the beginning. Look Citroen and ''their'' experience and sitting out. It doesn't pay off at all. Except Ogier ill now turn toSuper Saiyan and will beat them all haha a little joke aside
