    I dont think it would have been a wise move to throw away a good relationship with Ford. Especially if you consider who is probably more committed to remain in rallying for when Andreas is hitting his peak.

    Mikkelsen said that he has until next weekend to get the money to fullfill his proposed contract from Citroen. He actually said that if they didn't get the money this week, they give up the WRC 2009 campaign.

    Maybe blanks for the contract negotiations

    So M-Sport offered him a reduced offer to drag him into Fords side?

    Yeah or Wilson went something like this "If you leave us now you won't be able to put your foot in this team ever again" to say it a bit harsh

    Only rumours...

    Met Andreas two days ago, and he is absolutely not sure himself what is happening. On option is actually that he will be quitting rally for 2009 to do his military service in Norway. The article in rallybuzz is nothing else than extremly unconfirmed rumours, possibly Ford is his third and last choice...

    Several drivers has been in discussion to drive alongside Mads Østberg in the Adapta Subaru M2 team, among those Eugene Novikov, Guy Wilks, Urmo Aava, Chris Meeke, Henning Solberg and others. Nobody has come up with the proper budget yet, but Morten Østberg (team principal and father of Mads) is staying calm and confident about getting a second (and even a third driver in a S12b!).
