The bad thing is I hadn't even started on the beers!

Back to rallying and I see Loeb has had talks with Hyundai, and I heard a rumour about a change of team manager at the team!

83 R5 or more cars now booked for Monza Rally, insanity, don't think you will ever see anything like that elsewhere.

Some great names too.

Rossi has hired three Fiesta's for himself Uccio and Brivio (at God knows what cost), plus Suninen is there in a works car.

Toni Cairoli also and weirdly Chad Reed, for those who dont speak motocross, two of the best riders ever!

Nearly 60 R5 cars! just bonkers event.

Maybe more beers needed then? hehe

I wouldn't be too surprised if there are some changes in their team management, they made (and/or failed to make) a few risky decisions which you could argue cost them their championship goals - Hyundai company oversight may want someone to take a fall for that failure to meet goals which looked well in sight earlier in the season.

I see 3/4 of the current spec WRC Fiestas at the Monza Rally Show have the Ogier spec rear aero package and also seen on the WRC instagram page a video explaining the 2019 Aero is being tested very soon as well. If M-Sport are reportedly looking to step back next year why still develop the car at this stage?

Big Malc is still trying to lure Loeb to Ford.

Would love to see Seb in a Ford, how likely is it going to happen, no idea. Better chance no there isn't going to be a 3rd Citroen for 2019.
