    Happy for Jari even more so that he's done it with uncertainty surrounding his future/ season plans, while smashing the "Hyundai" drivers who have lined Tanak and Martin's pockets....
    Yes! Congratulations to Jari Huttunen on his fantastic victory! I haven't verified it, but I read somewhere that it was the first ever win for Hyundai R5 in WRC.

    And even better, he did it in an old-spec not-upgraded i20 R5 !

    OC Veiby said recently that he doesnt worry about fighting guys in WRC3 as his focus is points for the WRC2 Championship.

    So kind of saying he could beat them but doesnt need to.

    Hmmm.

    Strategically that’s perfectly sensible, which again shows how stupid this WRC2/3 setup is.

    Again, the reference was to Absolute Rally podcast, why is Eddie always hiding that source? Someone could start listening to them for mentioning here.

    It's interesting what Veiby says: it seems to be the team's target to get the WRC2 title. Usually the R5 drivers say they don't follow the separate WRC2/3 series standings and just want to be the fastest R5 driver to show the team bosses.

    If it matters so much I'll let you be the AR source in future.
