Toomas Heikkinen told that good news may be in the near future but where, and when - no reply was received yet. "- I already have one contract on the table."

As the season starts, we don't know much. So, based off gut feel, tea leaves and general impressions - who would you pick for world champion driver and team this year?

Driver: Bakkerud (though rooting for Solberg)
Team: Audi

I would love to see Timmy Hansen winning the title, but I don´t think this will happen.

Driver: Kristoffersson
Team: EKS Audi Sport

World Rallycross Championship 2018

I'm gonna go with Bakkerud for the championship and EKS for the teams title,

Solberg is likely to get the win today though, he always seems to do well in slippery conditions

Hoping Kevin Hansen get a win this year!

Watched some brief highlights

I thought this sport was supposed to be rallycross? You know, tarmac and dirt?

Disgrace of a track surface to be honest

Thought Saturday was superb a blast from the past with greasy slippery conditions requiring a true compromised setup. I’ve long since said that the tracks which are tarmac and then dust covered tarmac should have sprinklers on them to create this
The raving on Saturday was superb and mixed everything up. Wouldn’t need the joker lap if they did this

All the mud ended up on the tarmac! Cleaned up a bit too quickly on Sunday annoyingly. Nice to have a mixture of days but Saturday was so wet!! 25 euros, 40+ supercars. Can't argue with that!
Some great racing Saturday and lots of mistakes. But was nice to see the cars stretch their legs on Saturday and be able to go a lot harder into corners

As said above, there was definitely a mixture of conditions. The dirt was incredibly slippy on Saturday and the cars looked a real handful. Once it dried through by late Sunday morning it was swept aside pretty quickly. There was a crosskart race early on Sunday and that was really interesting to watch as you could see the fastest line through the dirt changing on each lap as it rapidly dried out.

Very tough call for the officials concerning the final. Ekstrom was marginally ahead, but I personally think he was too pushy: Solberg had the inside line and was travelling at roughly the same speed, yet Ekstrom put his car inside the white lines, so he must have known that any car inside of him was being forced well over them.

That said, I think it was a poor bit of track design and I am honestly surprised that there wasn't more then one car that collected that tyre barrier given how it jutted out. Solberg was dominant for a large portion of the weekend and he at least deserved a podium, was a real shame to see his weekend end like that. He gave the Polo a damn good thrashing in the final though!

Very impressed with the attention to detail on the Prodrive Megane. They looked very stiff on track, but both made the semi-final stage. I found the new OMSE Fiesta interesting to look at as well, seems a much sleeker design than previous iterations.

Fantastic drive from Nitiss in the European Championship. My first impression was that Marklund was going to be the pace setter again, but Nitiss was great in the wet on Saturday afternoon and again in the dry on Sunday.

I know that straight comparisons don't really work but €25 is only R370, our tickets range from R430 to R750, so you are getting quite a bargain, even though we only get RX and RX2 so not as many cars it's still worth it even at R750

I agree about Nitiss, great performance and seems to be back on form after a mediocre year in the Audi.

I agree that the placement of the tire barrier was unfortunate, but it was downright embarrassing to watch Mathias on TV claiming he didn't see anyone on the inside as he turned in. Had he claimed unfortunate race incident he would at least seem like it wasn't deliberate.

With Ekstrøm teamed with Bakkerud, who has tackled Solberg on so many occasions, I wonder if we are not in for a more physical championship this year.

Was it not Solberg and Ekstrøm who championed stricter driver standards last year?

Kinda funny though, many drivers complain about the standards and are quick to judge others but they have all been dirty in different ways themselves.

And Solberg is no angel, by any stretch of the imagination.
However, I've said it before, bit Marklund is the worst driver in the entire field in terms of contact. If he doesn't get to the first corner first, he will barge the others out the way.
