    Its Christmas time…Red Bull could play Santa and give Mikkelsen the 3rd MSport seat. That way Evans would still be in DMack and Lappi in Toyota!

    Two things.

    I was told during Rally Aus that M-Sport will have 3 WRC17 cars in Monte.

    D-Mack will have one.

    Makes four WRC17 M-Sport cars.

    On another note. Word was that Andreas will compete in WRC2 in 2017. But this was before both Ogier and JML didn't have drives! So all three VW guys were up in the air!

    The 3 M-Sport cars could include the 1 DMack car as the rules were relaxed for them to have different tyre makes within the same team. DMack are effectively just a sponsor/tyre supplier within M-Sport...

    Are you sure?
    Then, rumors about Kubica doing at least 7 rounds as a 3rd driver might be true.

    Maybe those of you here who have been criticising MW for years will listen to rally legend Ari Vatanen...

    So Ari, are you satisfied with the news (about Ogier signing) ?
    'I was so happy when I learned it. This testifies to the excellent work of Malcolm (Wilson, director of the M-Sport team).
    It must be remembered that Ford has very little investment (in M-Sport) and Malcolm has to find the money himself and manage his company well. He took big risks, and I love his entrepreneurial spirit. He started by selling pilot gloves at Carlisle Airport and now he is there, he deserves everything that happens to him. People do not realize it's easy to work for someone, but it's entirely different when you risk everything without knowing what it's going to give you, you take calculated risks and you hope it works. And it worked for Malcolm, he's a real businessman. '

    I'm 99% sure that they never were thinking about Kubica as their driver...
