While Kris Meeke is left wanting, Tommi Mäkinen has also spoken. The pattern of the team Toyota Gazoo Racing had good words for the british pilot: “Kris is a very nice person, we like a lot and yes I have quoted with it. We’ve seen recently. Meeke is someone who we could imagine on our team“. Some words are laden with meaning and that come just after the declaration of the interest on the four times champion of the WRC. Tommi Mäkinen wants three Yaris WRC in their debut and seen what has been seen, one could be for Kris Meeke.
