    His aim is to get back to the WRC seat but his pace through this season obviously hasn't been good enough for anything better than a paid drive. It's natural to have higher expectations for a former WRC works driver and moreover one of the most experienced rally drivers in the world.

    I find it quite weird aswell he can do a good job to get WRC2 points in Ypres, experience there, car suits the stages aswell very good and the opposition is quite weak then for WRC2. But seems he will skip it..

    Why is Mikkelsen using Michelins in ERC and Not Pirelli as he must use in WRC?
    I guess the Pirellis used are the same tyres, and not different inmthe two series?


    And did Oscar have to retire after his off on ss12?

    I think he might be broken mentally - because surely he can drive better than what we've seen. Sounded totally defeated in a few interviews over the weekend. Reality hitting him hard now.
    His comments before the start of the season have become some of the worst quotes I can remember from a driver in ages

    Apart from Basso and Crugnola, the driver that impressed me in this rally was... Norbert Herczig. Not only did he stay in top 6 during nearly the whole rally, but on the last stage, despite being in a very good 4th position, he put everything on one card, won the long 20-km stage and took the 3rd position from Llarena! What a commitment! Congratulations!

    Herczig said at the finish line: This was sport over the whole weekend. Efren is very young and very fast, congratulations. A few years ago we couldn't reach the podium, we did a lot of work since then with our team and partners. It was a big fight.

    Crugnola was right with him too but for a puncture.

    Maybe stupid question but:

    Why Alpine R-GT is not ERC2 ?

    Abarth R-GT is ERC2

    What is the difference ?
    "quattro best 4wd rallycar ever"
