    The big question here is if Hyundai will introduce some changes to the tarmac car to suit Loeb/Mikkelsen before that. If not we might get another repeat of the terrible performance both showed in Corsica/Germany.

    Neuville's performance in Germany was far from terrible...

    Sordo and Neuville can drive that car on tarmac. Mikkelsen and Loeb cannot (/haven't so far)

    Maybe you should read what I wrote one more time.
    I am saying that Loeb (on Corsica) and Mikkelsen (in Germany) had terrible performance cause the tarmac car doesn't suit them.

    If Hyundai doesn't actually change the car to suit them it won't matter much which one of them drives. The problem is that Hyundai does not have much reason to do that as long as Neuville and Sordo do well, they might even risk making the car worse for Neuville/Sordo to if they make it suit Loeb/Mikkelsen more.

    Why changing the car. Can't they just setup the each car for their liking? OK the setup have a room for improvements but altogether they will not ruin it for others (I mean Neuville-Sordo). And if it's unproven that Loeb-Mikkelsen are not making results with ''best setup'' they have a job to do to find setup that would make something out of it. I mean We are talking about nine time wdc champion and a three time wrc event winner. I guess they have a little bit of knowledge now after so many years in wrc.

    It seems they can't setup the car for the "smooth" driving style for some reason. But it is also true that until this summer it didn't look like they invested any serious effort to it. First with the two testing tarmac rallies for Loeb there seems to be some will to change things. Whether things actually change is another question.
