    And possibly to give a taxi run for some sponsors and friends without putting them in any sort of danger.

    If anything he'll be in a fourth car. He just doesn't make the cut. Neither does Camilli. I think Østberg and Suninen will share the third car. Also, isn't a switch to Pirelli too much of a risk for any of the manufacturers? If they are even slightly off the pace of Michelin that's that for both championships.

    I don't think Pirelli even have the full range of tyre options compared to Michelin.

    Bertelli does not need M-Sport and even less does M-Sport need Bertelli. His drives are not related to the line-up of the manufacturer's points scoring team of M-Sport.

    Well that's a good job then, because he's not going to score any points.

    Bertelli retired from 8th in Argentina with gearbox failure on the penultimate stage. But still, he's a self-funded privateer driving for fun, not a candidate for a factory seat.

    More details of Ford Performance and their technical involvement:
    https://www.motorsport-news.co.uk/ne...-from-america/

    Looks to me like they will tap into FP in America behind the scenes (similar to what they did in WRX), but we won't see Ford officially return as a manufacturer any time soon.
