    Kajto wants to continue competing in WRC2/WRC3, but he is going to miss Monte Carlo and Sweden. He's still wondering what car to choose. He has recently been testing Fiesta R5 and Fabia R5, Polo R5 is also a possibility.

    So, 2 WRC3 crews fighting for WRC3 win ahead of 2 WRC2 crews fighting for WRC2 win; they’re using the same cars, why not having 4 crews fighting for a single Rally2 category? It’s a shame to continue with this stupid WRC2/WRC3 split.

    I kinda understand the "professional" factory backed drivers vs privateers aspect and why it's bit unfair against the privateers in the long run, but why couldn't it be handled like they do it in ERC. Have a 1 R5 category where everyone is fighting against each other and then have the separate privateer cup or whatever under that with slightly different and more affordable rules.

    Basically last year if all WRC2 had been the same, Loubet wouldn't be now a champion, and that's what they're trying to do, giving chances for privateers to get a title. But it would be more reasonable to have everyone participate in the same WRC2 and award a separate privateer cup with less rallies needed to participate. That way the privateers could still take points off the factory drivers, if they are faster.

    Reading between the lines it sounds like he is not so keen to work with BRR again?

    I am not sure if Rovanpera should be also a champion in WRC2 Pro if all R5 cars should be in one group...

    I'm not good at reading between the lines, but he said that he has many options for this year, so who knows, you may be right.

    Until the first rally he has plenty of time for some new commercials

    Judging from the Monte results, Yates will be the new Pieniazek in WRC2.
