The FIA takes away
It seems on one hand we have Toyota making leaps and bounds with testing and having the nerve to introduce a young driver to the team with Kalle Rovanpera joining for testing soon, according to the encouraging report on page 18 of
Motorsport News (May 4). However, it seems that yet again the FIA will pull the rug, owing to Jarmo Mahonen stating quite clearly that they don’t want 18-year-olds coming to the WRC in the new 2017 cars. Within the space of two pages of print the FIA managed to dash another thrilling prospect in its brave new world.
