What did he say, I didn't had a chance to see it?

Nothing imo...he was told that he doesn`t have to win this event, having a comfy lead and he said: "(Why don`t i have to win it?) We will see tomorrow. If you have four events to go, you never know. We have to take what we can from every event."

It takes mental strength to remain positive and grateful after you become a top driver who's earning millions. Most people don't have that. The ones who do will have the biggest number of fans. That doesn't mean you have to shut down your personality, it can be shown in a nice way. Take Grönholm for example. I think it was clear a long time ago that Tänak is not one of them.

Being honest and emotional, probably caused some grimms in the SP though...

Cmon girls. Do not start over thinking. Tanak was most quiet driver years back, answering only "yes" and "no". He is giving his best to "talk" and has changed his personality very much. Even Becks has said that Tanak was hardest guy to take interviews because he did not talk nothing and it changed one day. You need to see Tanaks movie then you understand his personality better.

Yes, I do. He's being loved for comments like these. He's just raging about x circumstances in a funny way, not calling other drivers lucky fuckers.

M. Ok then. Though i think PSA and its fans would have disagreed.
And the other thing was actually " lucky bastard", you can look up the synonyms yourself (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/lucky_bastard). Not so bad and if you add the fact that he is not a native speaker (+ he was really lucky indeed).
But well hey, that is the emotions part, why some people love it, others hate it. There is no right way, as people are different, each have enemies and friends, some more, some less.

Honestly nothing much. Just came across difficult, or a bit glum/moody. It was more just an observation of a general trend I and others have spotted with Tanak. Not meant as a criticism either, there's more at stake for him now and he's maybe ultra zoned in while focusing for the title (as well as having to deal with all the contract talk). Plus he'll be doing a lot more PR in the lead up to rallies and while on events, so no doubt it gets tiring.

And since it's been pointed out to me, I maybe notice it more when he's seemingly being short/ blunt/ condescending with his replies. Also could just be the way he says things in a foreign tongue, as there's a fine line in English where saying the same thing can come across witty and jokey, or make you look like a bit of a twat or like you have a problem with the world.

Seen a great interview with one of Gronhlom's engineers a few years ago, F X a french fella.i He said Marcus never complained about set up like most drivers when the times weren't good, he'd just say "Ok I must drive harder".

I first read your comments here and now checked the interview and expected some proper not-in-mood-misbehaving... but what are you talking about? I'm blind or there wasn't any mood there. Calm answer for a-bit-provocative question. Maybe some of you guys need to check your own mood
