    I thought Michelin would of been more involved on the livery since Ogier is French and they could not have a French world champion sponsored by Dmack. Originally, before VW quit, I thought Dmack was going to push to get the whole M-Sport team sponsored and switched to Dmack tires.

    Michelin is supposed to treat all teams equally.

    Can they not sponsor a team like Dmack? I remember seeing a Ford Escort to the colors of Michelin in the 1990s.

    That was Wilson's own Escort and he was contesting the BRC with it and only RAC and little else from the WRC schedule.

    Red Bull can sponsor drivers, when promotor is Red Bull Media House and Michelin no?

    I believe Michelin also can but they dont have to, every top driver uses them already...

    Exactly, DMACK must prove their product, Michelin is the top product and is selling well to customers, no need for extra sponsorship.

    I'm being more pro-Ford (with their rally history). Plus it would be good to see another full manufacturer team.

    And it has to be said that Red Bull are just in it for what they get out of it. They have no real love of rallying. If they did they would sponsor MSport, not just the world champion.
