    Näin Valtteri Bottas viettää F1-sarjan kesätaukoa – testaa taas ralliautoa https://www.is.fi/formula1/art-2000006198761.html

    Valtteri Bottas to test Ford (though the story does not specify whether it's WRC or R5) next week in Germany.

    My interpretation is that it's his last R5 rally with the team. He's set to do Germany and Spain in the Yaris WRC, and most likely next year no more R5 starts..

    IMO he will be back (down) to R5 Toyota as soon as they make it.

    I say they’ll rather send him back home if he hasn’t become a world class driver by that time

    I was thinking about Arai (father) in Subaru. He got some WRC starts and wasn't quite fast to fight for wins there, so got dropped back to PWRC where he was fighting for podiums for quite long.

    I suspect that if he does not impress anyone driving yaris , he will end up competing in national rallies back home. Toyoda just wanted Japanese driver in TGR, but imo Katsuta is not it.

    Most certainly it's Katsuta or nothing. They don't have time to waste another 3-4 years to develop "Katsuta II".

    Btw, I think Katsuta will do better in Yaris WRC than most think.

    His win ratio with Yaris is 100% (2/2)
    Is there any other drivers who have more than 1 start with modern WRC and only 1st places?

    He will be faster than R5 but can he keep car in road is another thing...

    I think he will be (if he manage to stay out of the trouble or at least on the road) somewhere between Tidemand, and other ocassional drivers. I can only think of being faster than Bertelli, Qassimi, Block. (Well not so many start these kind of cars)
