    Yeah I also understood it this way. Namely, that now with the backing they could afford OGI, TAN and EVA.

    Tänak actually said before he signed for Toyota that he was torn and that he thought that the Fiesta was the only car that was fast everywhere.

    McRae, Sainz, Märtin, Duval and now Tanak all lost because Ford HQ couldn't make up their minds before August/September when drivers want to put pen to paper. It's just ridiculous.

    But hey I guess I shouldn't complain after winning both championships and keeping Ogier and Evans onboard.
    For all of these guys (except Sainz) , leaving Ford proved to be the downfall of their career...

    For Solberg, leaving Ford worked mid term but in the long run, the uncompetitiveness of Subaru came back to bite him.

    That's why I said worked mid term. But then, Hollywood spent 7 full seasons without a win.
