    Confirmation of a Ford comeback will be the perfect end to this rally year.

    To me it depends on WHEN Seb Ogier will announce what happens: before Australia, he will continue at Ford.

    After Australia: he will either retire or go to another team.

    He promised somewhere that before Australia OR during the event the latest. Would be nice to announce Ford`s return and Ogier`s staying during the season- ending party...

    I think it's two way deal - Ford comeback only if Ogier stays, Ogier stays only with full manufacturer support. Ford gets credits anyway, until M-Sport uses Ford's chassis, so why they need to comeback, but if Ford could build legacy in rallying (and they could do only with Ogier and only now) like Citroen with Loeb, or like Subaru - they could have benefits. Subaru long gone from WRC and for regular peoples still rallycar=Subaru. Ford gets something only if they could be dominant force and incorporates "rally spirit thing" into their brand for good, like Subaru, Audi with Quattro did.
    And I think it's settled - Ogier stays, M-Sport get Ford full support. It's win-win-double win for Ogier-Ford-Willson. For others, and sport itself - we will see.

    Well, if it is true, and it is a big if; let's hope they back M-Sport properly with a decent budget! I seem to remember them pulling some budget when Abu Dhabi signed as a main sponsor.
    All in or not at all!!

    If they were going all in with a very big budget we probably wouldn't still be awaiting confirmation of their comeback at this stage of the year. Otherwise they probably wouldn't have passed up a chance to dominate the manufactures by keeping a hold of Tanak as well as Ogier and Evans.

    Budget to pay Ogier's wages and extra finance to support continued car development will be about it imo. Toyota and Hyundai's budget will still dwarf Ford and even more so Citroen's.
