    That was based on assumption that this year's route would be more 2017ish (when EP was 0,5 km/h from tying the record, I think?) than what we saw last year. But I know you know it much better, so now - in the unlikely scenario it would come into fruition - I probably have the strongest claim for "the most extreme prediction that turns out to be correct" award, if nothing else

    Ogier has the rare talent of being able to win and whine at the same time.

    Toyota drivers to have a big rivalry (mostly) in the beginning of the year, no friendship can be seen in that team; quite the opposite in Citroen.
    Citroen will have a third driver.
    Breen and Ostberg will drive a WRC car, but not Paddon.
    Mikkelsen still not impressive and it's his last season in Hyundai.
    2019 is the start of Tanak's era (World Champion), hence French talk nonsense and try to ruin the championship.

    1. Neuville will not win the WDC
    2. Underperforming Hyundai driver/s will be benched or binned around mid-season as they endeavour to win the manufacturers championship
    3. Drivers title will be decided in Australia
    4. Manufacturers title will be decided in Australia
    5. Hayden Paddon will return before the season ends
    Things happen for reasons, not excuses.

    1. Meeke will surprise us, with podiums.
    2. Loeb will win again.
    3. Hyundai will still struggle. Both with reliability and on asphalt.
    4. Ogier and Lappi will create a winner.
    5. Mikkelsen will drive a Ford in 2019.

    Surprise whom? I can se all kind of predictions regarding him in this thread alone which clearly shows that people have very different opinions about him.

    1 Tanak to win Drivers title
    2 Hyundai to win manufacturers title
    3 Loeb won’t win a rally
    4 Breen and Paddon to be brought in at some point during the season
    5 Citroen to finish last in the manufacturers table, despite Ogier winning 3 rallies.

    I know this is a fun thread but this is like reading political party programs before elections:

    There are people here that constantly write how he will be 7-8th in "the crap car", they quite likely they will be surprised. Others expect him to get another win this year, much harder to do better than that.

    Basically same problem, some people will be surprised if he keeps crashing, others if he is stable around 5th place.....

    Without measurable quantity these "predictions" are pointless.

    Until I made my prediction, I think I only read that he will be clear 2nd to Ogier, and that basically he will be there only to help him by pulling over, etc. So I meant better than that, but you're right, my point wasn't clear enough, so updated it.
