Congrats to Ogier, M-Sport and especially to Evans for the performance this weekend. Nice to hear the national anthem twice, not something I've heard in WRC for a long time, maybe not since Colin McRae.
 
Best season since forever, every manufacturer scored at least one win. If Toyota gets its act together, with the new driver shuffle, next year could be even better.

Can't help but feel a bit sorry for H?nninen but yes next year should be really good. Ott has really grown up and should make a great addition to the team.

Neuville needs to stop breaking stuff but after Spain it may be more of an issue with the car rather than the driver.
 
Eh Haenninen. I have nothing agains't him, but he knows getting a full WRC entry at his age and in this economy he can be glad he got that. Toyota's development season is done and now needs either winners and/or serious point scorers, which Lappi, Latvala and Tanak are.

I'm more worried about M-Sport. It's almost sure Ogier is going to Citroen, so that leaves them with Evans, Ostberg and possible Breen. Tiedemant (WRC2) imho isn't fast enough, BRC and ERC don't have any talent ready for WRC either.

Suninen? I'm sure he'll be looking for a WRC drive and if Toyota are already full maybe he'll find a place with Malcolm.
 
Good job Ford, droping the money so Ogier stays in M-Sport. Christ, citroen is going to suffer. I just dont see loeb doing anything worthwhile. Maybe he'll help develop the car, but the 3 current drivers are just not consistant enough for any serious title contention.

What an exciting start to the season, so much going on. The snow and the ice both shook things up. Congrats to Ogier, Tanak and Latvala for their podium places, to Kris for his power stage win and commiserations to Evans and Lappi in particular for just missing out at the end. I'm looking forward to seeing better from Breen too. :)
