Toyota Gazoo Running
top the championship and hard to find a weak link. The Western squad appears to be the standard for others – it only has to maintain its charge going in more ways than just one ……
What a transformation! A team which suffered turmoil for the previous few years has two wins out of three championships. It was a brave decision to spend big money on signing Sébastien Ogier, however, the one who has paid off handsomely so much better.
New boss Andrea Adamo has already stamped his authority on the team by falling Andreas Mikkelsen for next week’s Corsica linea – Tour de Corse, but the Korean squad needs to begin winning and soon. New parts are coming that will help the i-20 ’therefore underlying understeer issues. The automobile is undoubtedly fast but its fragile nature remains a concern.
A Mexico podium along with Teemu Suninen leading Sweden’s launching leg shows the British squad has stayed loyal to its pledge of ongoing development of their Fiesta — despite a funding shortfall. Wins would be the priority rather than amassing things and also this should offer great gung-ho pleasure as the summer season advances!
Elfyn Evans has really made a solid start. He had been frustrated with himself in not scoring a podium in Sweden, but a formidable drive in Mexico put that to rights. If they can maintain his consistency, then he could deliver to his undoubted potential.
We’ve just noticed Sébastien Loeb twice. He netted fourth on his Hyundai debut at Rallye Monte-Carlo, which earned international praise. He wasn’t totally happy, though, and now there ’s no doubt his competitive series still burns strongly.
Jari-Matti Latvala became one of the most experienced WRC motorist in Sweden but it hasn’t ever even been his year thus far. He keeps his pace, as five stage wins let’s , but there are a lot of things going wrong to the Finn.
It’s another narrative of what may have been. Two no-scores when in strong places in monte carlo along with also Mexico and fourth in Sweden haven’t been enough to conserve his full-time seat. Hyundai’s decision to drop him Corsica realistically sets paid to some championship challenge and the way that he recovers will be important.
He might be forgiven for his first night error on black ice hockey in monte carlo, but in Mexico that there weren’t any excuses for his SS 2 shunt every time a good driveway there normally reaps rewards.
He may have heard far from the first few rallies, good and awful, and that I see big things with this particular charger.
