    Congratulations to Kalle and Jonne! Great come back in tough conditions after two bad rallies, I'm sure there will be more championships to come.

    Some thoughts on the others. Ogier seems to have taken a step down in speed. Evans has looked uncomfortable all year, even in conditions where he used to be good, seems the car doesn't suit him. I think we are seeing Katsuta's max level. Hyundai in general still looks behind, Solberg seems to be finding his rhythm, he needs more time. At Ford either the cars fall apart or the drivers go off, nothing new, i give them the village team award this year.

    Looking forward to Spain and especially to finally see Japan back in the WRC.

    Close to perfect season for Kalle, no doubt he's a very worthy champion, congratulations to him. I still can't see anybody challenging him seriously next year either.

    it also makes him, without taking karting into account, the youngest FIA World Champion in history!

    Yes, Harri deserves a lot of credit from teaching 8-year old Kalle car control on a frozen lake to guiding him until now.

    Ogier: “Kalle is like the reincarnation of Kimi [Räikkönen] in rallying maybe - like completely cold-blooded and sometimes he has no emotions!''

    So.. it will be Toyota's last title for at least 15 years and Kalle retires before getting another title
