WRC » Wilson: I'll never forget Tanak's 'splashdown'

Great comments there from Malcolm, once again he has set about finding a Diamond in the Rough, or more like a pair of Diamonds. Both Tanak and Evans were drivers with potential that required someone like Malcolm to invest in them and develop them into Top drivers achieving podiums Malcolm has done this time and time again, Mikko and Thierry stand out as two drivers that came good under Malcolms guidance and trust, also and Ironically Tanaks Mentor Markko Martin who came good under Malcolm. I cant wait for these two drivers to start really pushing for Top results and paying back Malcolm in spades I think M-Sport is not only my Favorite Team but the Team with the most History and is actually the longest standing WRC Team in the WRC today dating back to 1996 with Kankkunen and Sainz

WRC » Toyota sign Teemu Suninen to WRC junior squad

Well im really pleased that they have secured the services of the Finnish youngster Teemu Suninen, but I am not so sure about Camilli. Time will tell though but having Two development drivers this early on in their career would not be the best move. I think if I were Toyota I would select and pay and nice little sum of money to a Top experienced Non contracted past WRC driver like Petter Solberg, Tommi Makkinen or perhaps Mikko Hirvonnen to Develop both the car and the youngster and then hope to Snag a current contracted WRC Top driver further down the line to compliment the youngster when their contract expires with their current Team Toyota seem very determined though, now they need to learn how to play Chess

WRC » Evans matches WRC career-best in Mexico

This is great news for Elfyn, yes ok there were several drivers who went out and this was in part why he finished 4th, but the key is the margin between his position and the lead. It wasn't 7 or 8 minutes but just 3:40.2 This shows that he could of been a lot closer if Malcolm had let him off the Leash. I am very Happy with his progress and I think he is following in the Footsteps of a certain Belgian driver Thierry Neuville. M-Sport have struggled to hold on to talented drivers in seasons gone by due to a lack of money and Manufacturer support, but I think Elfyn will be Loyal to Malcolm and stay with M-Sport like Loeb did with Citroen I think Elfyn could be getting the odd podium by the end of the season and could be free to fight for the win from 2016. Great Progress !

WRC » Meeke: Something is missing

Clipped a Rock ?? I think he meant to say we side swiped a Bank or a Rock face ! I feel bad for Kris, he is extremely talented and should of got a podium in Mexico. The only consolation is that Neuville did exactly the same thing on the exact same corner and Kubica also had a similar but unrelated accident somewhere else. I think he can recover though, I think Matton will be restricting his Freedom in Argentina a little. I would expect Kris to have a fairly clean and comfortable run in Argentina and finish 5th or 6th by the end of the Rally

WRC » Latvala not giving up

Well the only consolation now is that Latvala has to be Balls to the Wall and try and win every remaining Rally, he will no longer feel any Championship pressure to drive with a clever strategy, now he has to just go for it and this will mean that Ogier will also have to give it his all to defend Latvalas attacks Ogier can also now afford to be aggressive and have monster battles for the win on every Rally with a whopping 35 point lead over the next man. Winning in Mexico means he could fall off the bike and Not score a single point and still be left with a comfortable lead if that happened Neuville also seems to be knocking on the door, so this could really heat things up and make it very interesting to watch from a Sporting perspective. Lets see what Latvala and Neuville can do in Argentina !

WRC » Ogier: I did not need to push too hard

Gilles74 I think Loeb and Ogier were actually quite similar in a few ways, not only in terms of their personality traits but also their dominance of the Sport itself, although I don't Recall Loeb saying how easily he beat the other drivers after taking a win Hirvonnen racked up something like 14 wins while Loeb was winning World Championships and also Gronholm was still winning Rallies quite often too, all at the time that Loeb was taking the Title year after year, but this year it is looking a bit too much like the Ogier show I really do hope that Latvala can get back on top of his game and that Hyundai can provide Neuville with the latest version of the i20 asap. I really do see Neuville as the next star in the WRC and someone who can clearly answer Ogier on Pace

WRC » Ogier: I did not need to push too hard

This is why not many people like Ogier, not only does he win every Rally and make the Sport look and seem boring but he is shallow enough to rub it in and insult his fellow competitors by suggesting it was easy Its like the F.I.A are actually his employers and are paying him to try and encourage people to stop watching the WRC or something. I was disappointed that Latvala was unable to get the better of him, even the Power stage Latvala seemed spent. I hope he is not slipping back into his old ways of being a frustrated driver who crashes all the time. He could be so great, he just needs to Relax and believe in himself like Ogier does. Maybe Neuville can in future make Ogier work harder and beat him
