    I think this was mainly because of big pressure to him not to crash the car and score some points...

    So you actually say that Emil Bergkvist doesn't have the speed, i.e. he isn't fast enough to compete at the level of WRC?

    It wasn´t me saying that.

    He has speed for top level, but as you probably know, to keep the speed up, you need to practice regularly. And Emil doesn´t get occasions to do that, nor in rallies or on PETs. Jumping in now and the and still get 2nd in WRC2 is to me quite amazing.

    Got it now?

    Nikolay Gryazin compares WRC2 with ERC:
    “In the ERC you don’t have so much damaged roads, you just take the line and feel the grip. In the world championship you also need to have tactics. I’m just trying to do my best, to understand when I can drive faster.”

    You can also look at it in another way. Because of less damaged roads and shorter rallies, ERC (formerly IRC) requires flat out driving a lot of the time, which is perhaps why in the past it has been quite good at producing or helping talented drivers progress.

    That is not exactly what he said. His statement is following the well known fact that in WRC especially in lower classes it's not the pure speed which wins the events and even less the championships. We have had quite many champions in the WRC supporting championships who were pretty far from being the fastest.

    IRC/ERC was much more about the speed alone and that is also the reason why more drivers got to the WRC seat from IRC/ERC than from WRC2/SWRC/PWRC.

    Emil is only WRC2 driver who owns R5
    Emil does not test or drive rallies...

    What ???

    He is fast.
    But all other things he and his "team" are doing wrong.

    Quite many other Swedish drivers have sponsors...

    He has free fuel, tyres and entryfees this year, next year he must find money for those also. It´s going to be even more difficult for him in 2020.

    Don't think he even really owns it because "his team" J-Motorsport rents out that car to other drivers. But the reason about that the owner of that team Serderidis has backed him for years already.. And without him we wouldn't probably have seen Emil for years competing on that level..
