    I am surprised why Ford France didn’t support his champion. And Ford Europe don’t use the Fiesta WRC to advertise the Fiesta road car.

    Well, Ford Europe is probably responsible for Focus RS recce cars (German numberplates).

    haven't listen this interview ,but Evans told wrc.com that manufacture championship is very important for M sport.

    “I think there was an element that I was going to go for it, but there was a bit of a difficult situation. It’s very important for M-Sport to win the manufacturers’ title this year and I think they wanted to make sure they collected as many points as possible,” Evans said.

    Of course Evans and Tanak says that manufacturers title is very important. Do you expect they say "our team's main goal is to have Ogier as champion, and we just drive..." and only Malcom knows what's most important for M-Sport and himself.

    Hopefully they'll take it this year and will see the Blue Oval return after 5 too long years without them. Malcolm Wilson deserves at least one of the titles if not both, he has put so much effort for this year.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    So Red Bull is personal sponsor of Sébastien Ogier, Elfyn Evans and the future (?) Kalle Rovanpëra M-Sport drivers. Maybe the answer to Malcolm Wilson "problems" are the called (by me) Red Bull M-Sport WRT.
