    hmm thinking about it, it could be that Sordo will have a "good bye" rally in Portugal, that leaves 6 + 6 for Mikkelsen and Lappi. Even if Sordo does 2-3 rallies that leaves 5-6 for Mikkelsen and Lappi each. That could be how they plan to maximise road position.

    Top tier gossip NGL.

    I really hope Mikkelsen to Hyundai is true. Also it will be fun if Škoda just obliterates Toyota in rally2

    It did sound like something new is going on for Mikkelsen and Eriksen next year, at least from what i heard

    So Suninen ditched to Hyundai rally2 program again or to Msport?

    And Mikkelsen Sordo sharing both the 3rd car with Lappi? That doesn’t make sense for me too unless there is 4 cars out on some events

    Mikkelsen in Rally1 is gooood!

    6 rallies, can he do the others in Škoda i wrc2?

    Is he "full" factorydriver, or some kind of freelance?

    Agreed, Mikkelsen and Lappi sharing to get a cleaning advantage doesn't sound to sensible.

    But maybe the fourth Hyundai story from earlier in the year is true after all.

    ok that makes a lot of sense now if Sordo makes only one event but i would call it hardly sharing from Sordos point on view

    great news, finally he and his loyal fans here got the chance and im really eager to see what he can do then.

    Well, yeah, was thinking about a 2-rally program for Sordo to end his career at*«*home*» (just depending on the driver, I thought he could do Monte or Safari in addition to Portugal).
    Because almost 6 months without driving, I’m sure Sordo can be that competitive in Portugal.

    But on a general perspective, Portugal makes sense on a performance point of view also as he is on a 3-podium streak there (and 2nd ahead of Lappi last year).
