    @KKS the M-Sport ‘s issue is not the Ogier’s salary. It is what he want to stay.

    This isn't news, he already refused the big Toyota salary last year.

    Yep, Ogier mainly wants Ford to return to ensure the money is there to develop the car.

    Toyota offered him an actual salary? I thought that talk never took place as Ogier was not happy with the car.

    They made an offer before his test. Some say "open check", some 10million, truth is most probably some other amount. I believe that only Tommi, Mr.Toyoda and SebO knows actual numbers.

    really? So if Malcom says: "On this WRC year I put own savings" it's not about Ogier salary?

    M-Sport come to 2017 year without any financial difficulties. They build a competitive car by his own and win a rallys without "extra money" (savings) for guest driver. So manufacture Ford support isn't crucial as we all think.
    Yes, if Ford put some money into M-Sport - Ogier will be happy with his salary and could stay, but it's only one thing what M-Sport couldn't manage at this time.

    Well, probably, he and Ogier never implied there was a question about the salary. The Fiesta itself has to be capable of winning every event, which can`t be done without development. Development, especially the kind that is measured in 0.x seconds lost or won on a stage, needs expensive knowhow and equipment. Also Ogier has his third car now, Tänak his second...this season. Last private seasons they used one car per season or two, with a few older cars in garage in case of emergency. 00050TH served both Evans and Ostberg, PX15HTE was used by Tänak, repaired after Portugal and then served Camilli a few events, while Tänak used an old PX12CPS. I really don`t think that Ogiers salary is the main issue, as he has quite rich and big sponsors.

    Rumours not yet news
    Finnish website claims Citroen drivers for Catalunya will be Meeke, LeFebvre & Al-Qassimi. Also claims Mikkelsen will be with Hyundai in 2018 http://www.urheiluuutiset.com/mikkel...sa-hyundaille/
    Last edited by KiwiWRCfan; 5th September 2017 at 06:36. Reason: ahange Breen to Al-Qassimi as noted by AnttiL
    Growing old is a physiological certainty. Growing up is a psychological option.

    Actually it says that Citroen goes to Spain with Meeke, Lefebvre and Al-Qassimi, not with Breen. It says that Hyundai might have a four car team like it's rumoured for 2018 or then Sordo is said to want to leave WRC and go for rallycross.
