    to me Monte entries look simple, same WRC2 for every driver + support category for some.

    I donīt care who has entered the crew or which team has rented that car.
    WRC2 is THE thing and others are just sub categories inside WRC2.
    Last year was way more complicated!

    It also looks like Hyundai could be Østbergs next project.

    No cars entered by a factory bound team
    According to the solbergs the Rally2 car is far from finished, and is not easy to drive.

    I'd say that quote is more of a case of self-defence, than an objective assessment of the car's capabilities... if indeed Oliver has even said that.

    I wonder if that would be the feedback, if he'd managed to win WRC2 / RC2 on an event in an i20 N Rally2, rather than 3 DNFs?

    Suninen said the same about new Hyundai Rally2. I've translated his Finnish quotes somewhere, but if I remember it was mostly the handling that was awkward, going from understeer to oversteer too surprisingly. Hopefully something that can be rectified by dampers and setup, because there's not a lot that can be changed with the sparse homologation jokers.

    They were all in the same (Rally 2) cars last year. But now it's still a mess with the number of sub-catagories, and who has more or less team support and amount of testing.

    The main thing is that we don't have anymore two parallel series's with the same car. It's tough for privateers, but the long-term plan is to forward some of them to WRC3 with Rally3 cars when they take their first steps in 4WD cars.

    It appears that no one wants to drive WRC2 for M-Sport

    They developed Rally3 and Rally4 before end of the year. Why they didn’t improve Rally2 car too? It is notorious that need some improvement.

    Not a surprise, investing in a Rally2 M-Sport is probably the worst choice today from a strictly competitive point of view. IMO, M-Sport should have found a deal WRC championship + some Rally1 drives for Ostberg or Mikkelsen to help developing the car.
    Should be a difficult year for them again in WRC-2; let’s hope Huttunen and Cais can deliver some good drives.
