    Hopefully it's time for someone else to do the job (Eg. Breen) but you never know...

    Hyundai: "We wish them all the best in their next chapter and keep our doors wide open to them should they ever wish to return.”

    Last time Loeb was about to leave, he signed a 2 year contract. I`m pretty sure we will see him in a i20 sometimes soon, maybe even this year, if the season is extended and championship open.

    anyway, the provisional calendar according to them, 12 rounds

    PROVISIONAL CALENDAR:
    Monte Carlo: January 21-24.
    Sweden: February 11-14.
    Portugal: May.
    Italy: June.
    Safari: July.
    Estonia: July.
    Finland: August.
    Ireland: August.
    Chile: September.
    Turkey: September.
    Catalonia-Spain: October.
    Japan: November.
    If that does turn out to be correct, it a bit strange with a 3 month gap after Sweden.

    COVID-reasons, playing it safe to move as many events later as possible? Only the snow rounds cannot be moved. Also, Argentina has right now big wildfires...

    That does make sense to allow travel restrictions to be eased etc.
    The only rally that needs to retain the date for weather is Sweden, MC it’s history and tradition only.

    Sadly Loeb's run at Hyundai has been quite a big disappointment. Especially after the rallies in C3 where he had top 3 speed in all 3 rallies, led 2 and won 1.
    As was recorded here, quite many people thought he would decimate Neuville and win rallies.

    2x 3rd place out of 8 starts is certainly not what he and others were hoping for. The lack of speed on tarmac even after multiple test rallies is what stands out the most. I was hoping he would get a last shot at Ypres since Hyundai seems to be inproving lately but the bad performance at Monte and Hyundai desire to try Breen on tarmac before next year probably played a role.

    Since two other drivers as well as Loeb, all with recent great tarmac performances had big issues with this i20 on tarmac I'd say it was car-related issues and not Loeb suddenly forgetting to drive on tarmac.

    The i20 is strictly Neuville's car and the C3 was a tarmac beast. It's no surprise he was quick in the Citroen.
