    I hope people are not actually expecting too much from Kalle. Remember, he's 19 years old and it's he's driving his first WRC rallies. He has a lot of future ahead and the team are willing to wait and let him learn.

    I hope it was clear that was more of a comment on how the media will treat him, not my personal opinion or my expectations of him

    Following on from my successful crystal ball 19' predictions

    1. Drivers championship goes down to the wire with Ogier, Tanak and Neuville all tied on points going into the last round.
    2. At the last round Toyotas wheel problems rear their ugly head again, and Ogier breaks a rim on the first day putting him out of championship contention. Mrs Ogier takes to Twitter and pronounces the Yaris a piece of shit. Ogier retires.
    3. Due to the circumstances mentioned in #2 team orders come into play at hyundai with Adamo allowing the driver that gives him the best compliment about the pasta carbonara he serves them at final lunch break to take the spoils.
    4. Or, in the slim chance I may be wrong about my 3rd prediction, Adamo engineers it so that Neuville becomes 2020 champion, thus preventing Toyota from signing Neuville for 2021 and keeping the top drivers within his squad.
    5. Despite a couple of strong results, JML's hopes of signing for Toyota again for 2021 are fruitless, as he is now seen as a paying driver. 3rd seat goes to Meeke, in a deal set out a year before as part of Ogier taking his seat in 2020. Meeke sites it as best chance for a championship as Ogier will be retired, hence the lack of information around his contract negotiations and a continued loyalty to Toyota throughout 2020.
