    Silly Season 2019

    I was reading the news and rumors thread and this silly season is getting quite silly. I haven't closely followed who is contracted where but from what i know the only confirmed contracts are Mikkelsen with Hyundai and Tanak with Toyota. So that means it's quite open.

    Apart from that, from what remember reading Neuville is negotiating with Hyundai which makes sense. Other than that the permutations are so many I won't even bother listing them all but it seems every member from here has a different idea of who will go where and why. I thought we might have some fun and try to predict the contracts. Anyway, i'll just put my predictions here:

    Hyundai: Neuville, Mikkelsen, Sordo/Suninen
    Toyota: Tanak, Lappi, Latvala
    Ford: Paddon, Evans
    Citroen: Ogier, Breen, Ostberg/Loeb

    What are your predictions for the 2019 lineups?

    Toyota is rumoured for 1 change, Hyundai has enough of average drivers, so a learner would not make much sense. Paddon has a close relationship with Hyundai NZ and has other reasons why his only option should be Hyundai.

    And season 2019 rumours thread actually exists and covers it all pretty much.

    One would guess it's beginning to look more and more likely. Quite lame though, if it goes that way. That would make it three seasons with the new cars with Tänak switching from M-Sport to TGR being the only major move (ok, maybe free-agent Mikkelsen joining Hyundai could be considered as one as well).
