    My feeling is Tidemand could do a solid job in a WRC team, somewhere in the Breen-Ostberg ballpark but he doesn't seem so exciting any more with the speed Kalle has shown or how Kopecky took him on for the title this year.

    If Skoda enter with a World Rally Car from 2021, I would expect them to start testing that in some form from the end of next year. IIRC Fabia S2000 and Fabia R5 had pretty long development periods and both projects turned out pretty well.

    Will be interesting to see what they do next year driver wise.

    Suninen was never really shining in WRC2 and as far as I recall had usually same or worse speed as Tidemand (different cars though). Hard to tell how Tidemand would/will do in WRC, could do very well or not so good. In any case staying in WRC2 too long means stagnation. If he doesn't do a few rallies in WRC next year he might never move up.
    Personally I never ranked him very high, but I would never dare say how he does in WRC.

    Rovanpera obviously did very good and together with germany this makes me believe he will do well in WRC when the time comes . I don't think the time should come already in 2019. A few years ago you could do that, do full season just "learning" in WRC like Ogier did in 2009. Nowadays teams expect some results even in first year. I also hope he doesn't get his head full of all those fanboys everywhere that talk about him being next champion all the time. (some WRC-Allive crew joining those atm). That is for me biggest danger for his future.

    A bit confused here.

    Everyone seems to know Tidemand hasn´t got the speed in a WRC car, and at the same time already making Kalle a world champion.

    Having said that it´s important to be aware of how development can work. We know nothing about those two, except from that Kalle will stay in WRC2 next year.

    Besides I do believe Skoda already working with their WRC car listening to engine sounds in vids from Tidemands testing session recent weeks...

    It does sound a bit fruity, will be interesting to see what Skoda announce at their annual press conference.
