    Hugely disappointing result for the title-chasing six-time world champion, who was massively let down by an unusually unreliable Yaris WRC and now finds himself with a massive job to do to reclaim his crown.

    Is it the first time this year, while Hyundais have broken already three times?

    Last year Tänak had three big failures (Argentina, Sardegna and Turkey).

    Must admit it did seem pretty poor - he had the chance to Rally 2 then used it to employ every tactic possible.

    When is Ott going to start crap talking his manufacturer the way he did with Toyota? He has to be looking at TGR and realizing that they have elevated another driver to championship level the way they did with him, and wonder about what he was thinking to leave....

    Why should he? Hyundai's first major issue with Tänak. It is autosport and things happen, if this mistake will be fixed and improved, then there is no reason to cry about it. At least it is not Toyota, where Tänak had to retire god knows how many times because of floor protection failures and rims, until they could fix it.

    well.. during these two years in Toyota I would say he was rather polite and basically didn't comment anything about the issues till mid 2019, when Sardegna and Turkey problems took big amount of points away..
    And while fighting for the title(again) it's okay to get mad, when known problems occur again..
    Wouldn't call it talking crap.. not the same thing.
