That's Eurosport for you. They make everything as cheesy & naff as possible.

Ehrlacher led pretty much the whole season but Guerrieri would have had a better chance if he hadn't qualified so badly yesterday.

I think Eurosport is a great channel, but they seem to let themselves down, especially with how they broadcast this series. Too much emphasis on stuff doesn’t matter

Still it’s nice that Yann can join his uncle in being a World Touring car Champion, he did all he could. Despite problems, this series has it’s moments, although hopefully we can have an even better season next year. I have a feeling we will. More top quality drivers would help, but it all depends on what happens with certain teams and drivers

It was simply a championship rearranged in a pandemic situation. I'm young but I immagine that worst situation came only in the World War period and in the oil crisis.

In regard of this championship, well it was so compacted that even a DNF could compromise the season! It was the case of Esteban Guerrieri, very fast but also immediately unlucky in Zolder where he suffered the engine blow...

A part the argentinian Ehrlacher was the most competitive driver. Vernay with the Alfa returned to his level and concluded third with the indipendet trophy win! The young belgian Magnus score some interesting results

The Hyundai were highly uncompetitive throughout the season! This was a big blow for the championship because Michelisz has been never in contention for the high ranks positions and the same was for Tarquini, Engstler and Catsburg. Urrutia show good perfomances in the last thres spanish round so I hope he can continue with Cyan

In my opinion:

- ECU problems needs to be solved. All the cars must race with the same ECU otherwise is better to return with the old BOP application

- Compensation weights need to be dropped or adjusted. I think for WTCR is better to use a ballast sistem like old WTCC or maybe to drop totally this sistem

I can’t wait to see what happens next season, hope it all goes well. As long as there are plenty of top drivers in seats, especially from all over the world

Swap was logical but don't understand why they waited so long.

IMO the season was pretty good.
Happy for Jean-Karl Vernay and the Romeo Ferraris team.

Ehrlacher was impressive this season. He never had any spectacular performances, but he was consistent and didn't make many mistakes. Which is rare for young drivers. I remember in his first season he had a reverse grid win in the Lada, which was a sign of things to come. Most young drivers with the reverse grid pole fall down the grid quickly, but he kept his cool.

Apologies- I thought you were referring to WTCR titles only.

So the 4 are the 3x WTCR titles, and the F1?
