    Check Bulletin4. It says max number of Sottozero is 8.
    Attached is one photo from his Instagram stories...

    I see now that he did first run of Shakedown he did with the snow tyres, just don't know which was his tire choice for SS 1.

    Yeah, for instance Sainz got NZ 1990 ”for free”. It was not a manufacturer round so the only proper opposition was Ingvar Carlsson’s tiny Mazda! Almost same in 1992 with only the Subarus of McRae and Vatanen (not yet a team capable of winning) against Sainz.

    Inside information from an M-Sport engineer

    Michelin RC2 runners have access to the latest wet (MW1) tyre. WRC crews are on the older spec FW3

    What about all other years ?

    I have to say that I don´t remember how many rallies each year had.
    Yes, I consider him a "real champion", even though Sainz was unlucky to miss New Zealand. As it was said, even if 1995 had the least amount of championship rounds ran (until 2020...), it wasn't much different from the other seasons of that era. 1996 with 9 rounds total, 1994 with 10 rounds total, prior to that calendars were bigger but nobody used to run all rallies of the season.

    We talked about it before and I think the tire situation is actually quite interesting in multiple ways

    - can snow tires be sometimes better than wet tires due to temperature or due to the gravel parts? From Solbergs try it looks like they are not much worse at least

    - with only 12 wet and 8 snow tires can management by picking "the other tire" can be a factor?

    "Michelin RC2 runners have access to the latest wet (MW1) tyre. WRC crews are on the older spec FW3"
    I am more interested in the Michelin-Pirelli comparison (than WRC-RC2) in unusual conditions, one of them might be much better. (remember Pirelli in WRC 2003-2004 on wet tarmac?)
    Imo on Canarias Michelin wet tire looked faster on very wet roads (with temps around 10-15 deg). Pirelli wets were faster on less wet road.

    Here it should be very wet, but much colder.

    One particularly interesting point is then Kopecky and Tidemand in same team on different tires. Kopecky is usually a faster tarmac driver though.

    Onboards up, Neuville was out on braking in the same barrier that Katsuta drove trough. Lost 1-2 secs there easily.
    Veiby was out there as well, but no onboard of that.

    Østberg was very far out on the grass.
    Tidemand hit the wall basically same as Katsuta but didn't destroy anything.

    ...and alllive managed to miss it all.
