Its a shame for Al Attiyah, I like him, hes a good guy.

I would suggest that if Malcolm was looking at a new driver signing for next year who is not already competeing on Rally GB (I.E. Tanak) he would quickly pop them in the car for this event at short notice, but if they are not already doing the recce today then I dont think they will persue that plan on safety grounds.

If I were Malcolm I would now upgrade Elfyn Evans to the WRC Car of Al Attiyah for his home event and see if he could maybe get a Top 5 overall result, at least he could gauge how well he goes against Kubica (also in a WRC Car for Rally GB)

If there were a it more notice I am sure that you would of seen someone like Haydon Paddon fill in for Al Attiyah, Lappi is still under contract for Skoda so that would not be possible, and im not even sure if Malcolm is taking to Lappi anyway. I am just assuming he must be, based on his Huge potential and his age.
