    Of course you can question how well these rumors are funded, where they come from... There were similar rumors in the last couple of years as well. We've seen more people here posting rumors that were probably just made-up by someone.

    Rumours indeed... but if Ford are going to come back, now is far more likely than it ever was before.

    If they dont come back now they never will...

    If Ogier stays a M-Sport/Ford it's RIP Citroen. Bare some Loeb miracle happens.

    2,100 days or 300 weeks ago

    This Thursday will be exactly 300 weeks since Ford WRC made an announcement by releasing this video.
    How good would it be to have Ford Performance remake this video with current cars and similar announcement ?

    Growing old is a physiological certainty. Growing up is a psychological option.

    It’d be great, but sadly Ford execs are making some weird marketing options. They don’t care to take advantage of MSport WRC success to boost the new Fiesta launch and they seem only focused in promoting their exclusive models range (GT, Mustang, Focus RS). Even Henry Ford III is giving them a hand in that strategy, sometimes at the most unexpected places…https://twitter.com/FordEu/status/899960263973249025

    It seems that the meeting between Malcolm Wilson and Ford was yesterday in Detroit.

    M-Sport are launching a Supporters’ Club. (Because it refund the next 2018 campaign?) Ford pulls put i think.
    Short analyse: American Ford family do'nt understand Europe.
    I hope i am so wrong, but i am afraid Ford want better results in RX then give the money to WRC.

    I know its not much. But they have a lot of fans. And products are cheap. And think further.

    What does a company to create more valuable product for fans? Pay more and you can as fan be closer by your sport. Marketing techniques is in short: first pay less money, offers more, you need pay for it. After that you create bonus- or premiummembers.
    For example: You want be closer involved at M-Sport? You can get an opportunity to be co-driver during a test for example. Become a special member! Pay more, get more.

    That is what i see in my crystal ball

    So far my views of M-Sport fan club earnings model. We will see in future.
