    What is really interesting here is that he even mentions Meeke and Paddon, but no word about Suninen.

    EDiT: Most notably since Neuville has historically been at odds with Paddon. So what does he have against Suninen? I agree those 3 are better choice than Suninen, but Meeke and Paddon not so sure. Meeke lack reliability and Paddon isn't really on same level as in 2018 (yet?), but has Hyundai backing.
    Maybe he just forgot Suninen? Meeke and Paddon have been so much out of WRC that I canít see them returning full-time anymore

    James Fulton has been working with Craig and Paul all year on events so i'd not be surprised if he moves up to the hot seat.

    I'm inclined to agree, he isn't a media spokesperson giving official answers in this case after all.

    Malcolm has to be on the phone to the Solbergs and bring Oliver in.

    It's an absolute must. Ofcourse he's had a difficult year but he's still got potential to develop into a great. Msport can't attract a top tier driver so they have to nurture one, and frankly Greensmith and Breen etc will never be top tier.

    Or vice versa. Who needs who more ?

    Plus the Solberg's main sponsor being Monster may make it tricky with M-Sport''s other drivers being with Red Bull.

    The best for Oliver would be a year in WRC2 in my opinion. Maybe with a few rallies in Rally 1.

    If Msport don't sign the best young talent in rallying, when they can't attract the best drivers/have a poor lineup, they should just call it quits....

    I'd really like to see him have a shot with Puma.. we all know Loubet's story.
    Solberg has so few experience with big car and if it happens to be Hyundai, then it is many times harder to manage..

    No, just WRC2.
