    Would be great if he rallied his Escort in the American Rally Series.

    Might have been said already, but Malcolm on Rallyradio interview saying that Ford pulling out of rallycross with Ken Block is a "big blow" to everyone at Msport. In talks on a daily basis with Ford but doesn't know if that money will go into the WRC program or not. Also says if he was an opposition team principal he would be trying to sign Ott (like Tommi is), but wants to keep all three drivers (same as he's been saying for a while).

    I wonder what the WRX budget was? Anyone roughly know or care to guess?

    Loeb mentions 5 Million. Probably he meant 5 million euros per car? for Peugeot and they were getting beaten with that.

    M-sport saying goodbye to Tänak http://www.m-sport.co.uk/m-sport-new...m-sport-family


    funny how i wanted for years Tänak to go to another team and now reading this makes you a little bit sad, especially after i saw in spain how well he and Ogier get along.

    It took them less than 1 hour to put that letter out after TGR news.

    This was written well before

    So they did know that he is leaving...

    That's pretty standard though. I'm sure Malcolm has been well across these negotiations.

    No shock but a real shame to see Tanak leave after finally developing into the winner we hoped he would be..

    Good luck Ott.

    A shame for M-Sport. What is particularly galling, the likely doubleWorld Champions can’t attract a major big money sponsor. Ott's gone - how long before Sebastien leaves??

    Well we don't know for sure yet. Majority of the rumors are saying otherwise. It seems that M Sport have found some kind of backing. Either from Ford or someone else. We will know soon, but I'm sure Malcom is trying very hard considering he gave a portion of his own salary to Ogier.
