Neuville tested with Hyundai ahead of WRC Catalunya Rally 2021
Hyundai's Thierry Neuville is 30 points away of Seb Ogier who is leading with 190 points while Neuville is in 3rd place with 130 points.
Until the end of the season are only two rounds and every round can bring maximum of 30 points. That means that Neuville must win both rounds with maximum five bonus points on both Power Stages while Ogier and Evans must retire on the both rallies and still he can't be World Rally Champion because Ogier has four wins this season and Neuville has only one.
If really Neuville wins both rallies,it would be three wins and with equal number of points, Ogier is champion because of more wins from the season.
But he can drive for the manufacturer championship after Hyundai had, in my opinion, terrible season with so much technical issues.
I am pretty sure that all three Hyundai works drivers - Thierry Neuville, Ott Tanak and Dani Sordo will go for a win in Spain )Catalunya) while their Junior drivers who drive through Hyundai's satellite team 2C Competition will go for collecting experience and maybe some good result it they see that this is possible.
If you ask me, everything is in Toyota's hands. They just have to be clever and to bring the manufacturer's title home while driver's goes for sure for one of their drivers.
Neuville will try hard in the last two rallies but his car must help without mechanical issues because that was the reason why they didn't win more in 2021.
Let the best win - as always...
