    Loeb won WRC as a privateer 14 years ago. There were countless such "privateers" since then. Nothing has changed. It's only about the name of the entrant on the entry list. When it's Oliver Solberg, it's privateer, when it's Skoda Motorsport, it's manufacturer.

    I just can´t believe that Eddie is suggesting that someone who has car/connections is not allowed to take factory seat, every single factory driver have good management behind them.
    Correct Skoda officially didn't enter WRC2 indeed . We'll have to see now if it was for development or still for WRC..

    He also canceled his entry to small Rally in Jämsä, Finland this weeks Saturday, so probably couldn´t fly to Finland this week.

    From what I saw last week in Rally Rokiškis Gryazin definitely will be in a fight for victory.

    Little bit misleading headline.. he's talking about not doing anything different to prepare. Elsewhere he has said he's going to Latvia to win.
