    Why all bother too much with this useless numbers. I don't even notice them because it's not important at all. Drivers are pretty much recognized by the roof tops and side mirrors.

    NO

    Numbers are much easier to remember. Every team uses different color codes. Big number in roof and side windows is much easier way.

    If you don't like them, don't.
    There is seriously nothing to lose from this.
    It's quite a pointless, yes. But maybe it can help with marketing etc.

    After hearing drivers silly answers about their numbers choices it’s hard to find a valid reason for having this new rule. The WRC is not a circuit racing series with a limited and permanent number of drivers; it’s an open sport which allows new crews to get in at any new event and local amateurs to run alongside the series pros; that’s why we have seeded entry lists according to drivers status. The current rule already allowed P drivers to keep their numbers through the season, the new one will just add unnecessary confusion.

    Once for all, the FIA should care about preserving each series nature instead of forcing rules changes just because they seem popular or easy to implement.

    Agree with this, but then I'm in favour of numbers by seeding for all events and that's just not going to happen.

    Part of the NASCAR and now F1 reasoning for this was also branding (colours, fonts) of numbers; are WRC going to forgo the standardised sponsored number plates this year too?

    At the end of the day, it's a small irritant to see Evans in the midst of the R5s on the entry list and Mikkelsen amongst the R2s, but it's not the biggest problem around!

    i agree too with Power and PLuto. i would have preferred it the old way or, if they wanted to change it so much then they should have made a rule that say the must use the number they finished in the championship.

    Ogier nr.1, Neuville nr.2, Tänak nr.3 and etc.
