I caught up on the coverage from the weekend - brutal result for Tanak. He had it in the bag and then lost all that time on the final stage. It could have been a great weekend for Tanak with Neuville struggling all weekend and Ogier dropping out but in the end none of the 3 main contenders ended up with a good result. Strong showing from M-Sport - how much of that was genuine pace and how much was other people's struggles? Another weekend to forget for Lappi, he's having a really poor season, whereas Mikkelsen put in his strongest drive for some time - I did think Hyundai were going to pull team orders and drop Mikkelsen behind Neuville but they didn't - will that come back to bite them?

Unlucky for Tanak, especially with Ogier not scoring much. He would have really looked good in the championship. Still nice to see Sordo back on the podium

Hyundai are bringing in Craig Breen for Finland (alongside Neuville and Mikklesen):

It's a good opportunity for Breen but it's a bit of a random decision isn't it? They've got Loeb and Sordo on their books already so I'm not sure why they need to bring in Breen.

Neither of them wanted to compete in Finland.

Really? Firstly - why not? It's one of the classic events. Secondly - surely if Hyundai said "you're driving" then they drive? Very odd.

Both have contracts for a certain number of rounds and both have filled in for Mikkelsen when he have gotten benched.

Loeb said it was vacation time so it was a no-go. Sordo just didn't want to compete in Finland.

So Hyundai was put in rough spot with Adamo trying to figure out what to do. There is an Autosport article about it.
