Getting back to the Chris Atkinson vs. the 'other potoentials' . The last full season with Subaru - end of year Atkinson had MORE WRC points thanmore experienced P. Solberg. ( I think it was Chris' 50 to Petter's 48 ). In the last 2 or 3 years without a full time drive, Atko has been called up by Ford a couple of times, Citroen about 3 times, Mini last 4 or 5 races of last season. If Kris Meeke was so fantastic and he did one part season with Mini, why did Atko get called up to drive for a Mini team last year instead of Meeke who had a lot more experience in a Mini in WRC events? As a fill in/stand by driver he has done alright and usually finishes top 10 for whoever he drives for. Petter Solberg was good at fighting for 2nd. or 3rd. on last day and then crashing out...............
