I’m with @robk23, unless Solberg finds some speed, I fear it’s going to be an easy one for Loeb, agian.
Solberg is certainly the best of the rest, and now he got a car up to his speed for the first time since half a decade, I just hope he wins again. Sordo has always been mediocre, Hirvonen is alright but races at Citroen, so that’s a no-no, and Latvala is still very young. Solberg clearly stands out as fast and experienced enough to challenge Loeb, but he needs time in the Ford.
It’ll be hard to break Loeb-Citroen domination, really…
Though, I’m not sure if Loeb is the best ever, as @magnificent-geoffrey says. I like him, he’s spectacular, but honestly he’s been having it easy since Gronholm retired (except in 2009, probably Hirvonen’s best and last chance). He’s dominating a seriously un-competitive era in WRC, unlike other of the greats.
