Though this is Ford, so logic isn't always apparent.
Mikkelsen and Jaeger sign a two year deal with Hyundai.
intriguing. So do we think 4 cars next season? as all 3 existing drivers are still on contract next year.
Hyundai is already getting their moneys worth it seems. Mikkelsen grabs an early lead in rally de espana, followed by Østberg in 2nd.
Ogier still in the mix in third, despite having the disadvantage of being the front runner.
Really happy to see Andreas being given another chance.
Even if Mikkelsen wins Hyundai will still be way off the points to close in on M-Sport
update 8/10/17: Neuville retires such a shame, imagine if the won Monte and Sweden he would still have a chance to take the title.
Neuville shoots himself in the foot again. Ogier on course for 2nd and probably some Power Stage points. He might take the title in Wales.
He already took the title by now unless he get incredible bad luck and retires in Wales and Australia without a single point, not very likely
Neuville has only himself to blame. He has what is iikely the fastest car and he binned it in 4 rallies this year. Ogier is going to win through pure consistency with 8 podiums this season.
Yes I agree Neuville made some really foolish mistakes. I remember when he said before Germany that he would avoid cutting in the corners to avoid risk damaging the car and what happened? He cutted a corner and damaged a wheel.
Update 13:17: Kris Meeke wins in Catalunya!
And Tanak is up to P2 in the championship, M-Sport is 5 points away from the Manufacturers'. Ogier has a lead of 37 points over Tanak with 60 points up for grabs.
If the calendar was bigger lets say 16 rounds he would still be in the fight for the title. I really start to wonder why they don´t shrink the ending of the season? Whats the point to always have a massive 6 week gap if they are gonna keep this abysmal 13 round calendar? Make WRC end in Oktober and close the gaps, makes sense to me.
Edit 2017-10-18: Now It´s confirmed Ott Tänak joins Toyota
seems Toyotas hopes of winning next year are very bright now but what is gonna happen with M-Sport if Ogier also leaves for another team?
Now that’s a turnout. I count 10 champion drivers and 4 champion co-drivers in that shot.
Rally in Wales this weekend, go on Elfyn .
What's that flag? All I see is a supposed British driver not Welsh
Like J Clarkson's apt analogy - if someone's successful/ renowned/ good at something and they're from Scotland (or Wales, N. Ireland), then they're always considered British or from the UK for official purposes.
Indeed I said the same thing about Meeke in another place, when he won his second rally this year. All of a sudden he wasn't some clumsy driver, but a winning Brit driver.
WRC live on CH5 in the UK now.
HD is a bonus too.
Great job by Elfyn, seems almost too good to be true. And great finish overall for M Sport and Ogier
Yesterday, i made a mistake while typing a channel number and landed on a channel i never go to (L'Equipe TV, France). For a pleasant surprise: they were broadcasting WRC, which i thought wasn't on TV at all.
Too bad i missed the final today.
Very exciting 7 different winners, last time we saw that was in 2002
So now Clarkson can call Evans a British Driver! hehehehe
And this season has been the most interesting one for a long time!
Yes so many different winners and no idiotic 2 day road sweeping handicapping the drivers in the top. I gotta say I am disappointed as I hoped for Neuville to finally take the title.
I will get very pissed if Paddon do not get a full season next year
Looks like Mikkelsen is gunning for a repeat of last years Australia victory.
Uhm... Scratch that.
So this season 3 different people took their maiden win this year, gotta be some sort of record?
