“That’s a good question. I don’t know.”
This is hardly surprising. WRC deals are hardly an instant job and he has just finished his one-off stint in Finland. But is the return to Puma continuing?
However, he won’t be taking anyone’s place in the M-Sport line-up any time soon, as team principal Richard Millener made clear ahead of the event.
“At the moment it will depend entirely on funding,” Millener noted after Estonia.
But there is one good news for Huttunen. Unlike Craig Breen, who was in the boss’s bad books for failing, Hattunen did what Millener asked of him.
“As long as he gets a good result and finishes and improves, that’s the best he can do and we’ll see what happens.”
It will no doubt be a long, anxious wait for Huttunen to see what comes of this Rally1 debut.
