^^^Admittedly, I am more a fan of certain cars and manufacturers
doing well, than of any individual drivers/crews.
I LOVE IT when the M-Sport and FORD crews show the rest the quickest way down the stages, especially when
they beat up on the MUCH MUCH better funded (with all of those Camry/Corolla TRILLION$$ in profits) Toyota Gazoo crews.
I had to root for Ott (Tanak) last year, and a few before that, but this year I cannot wish him enough misfortune (with NO
resultant physical harm to himself or Marty Jarveoja of course)! LOL
The last time I had a 'favorite character' type actual driver
preference in the series was when Henri Toivonen was still alive behind the wheel of the Group B Delta S4.
