    For many years in America, Ken (Monster) and Travis (Red Bull) were in the same team!
    True, but we are a decade removed from then. Monster wasn't that big and every promotion they would take was fine. Possibly Red Bull didn't think they were much of a threat in those days.

    Well, shouldn`t be a problem, there aren`t any RB logos on Bouffiers car either. In Ogier`s and Evans`s case RB is their personal sponsor, maybe they also made a deal with Suninen...or they are sponsoring the whole team... Anyway third car should be considered as a rental, when Suninen isn`t driving it.

    Probably similar to VW, where Latvala wasn't a RB driver but the whole team was RB sponsored.

    Latvala was a RB athlete when he drove for VW

    Oh! My bad. I thought he wasn't because his helmet didn't have any RB branding unlike Mikkelsen and Ogier

    Ligato retired from rallies at the end of 2017 season, but said that in 2018 he'd like to do Rally Argentina in a World Rally Car (and he will be on the first rounds of the National Championship to be fit).

    Maybe, he really would be the guy in the M-Sport car, although his latest rallies with a WRC was with Citroen.

    Bertelli announced he's doing one WRC round, so nominating him is better than nothing if the main drivers fail...Bertelli did Argentina last year and retired from gearbox problems from eight place but also there were less works cars (only two Toyotas and two Citroens).
