    There was no sign of Tanak holding position on the first two rounds this year... in Monte pushing like crazy on the final stage with the car on 3-cyclinders, then in Sweden setting fastest times on the Saturday pulling back Latvala.

    Yes, the team orders are part of the game, but we all know who is the master.

    The French?
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    jparker, not sure if you're refering to 2005, 06, 07... discussions in the forum but it's true that MSport was criticized here and beyond the forum for using team orders and satellite teams more than others.

    All in all it was legal, they could do so thanks to the number of cars available which positively contributed to the series.

    Well, pushing in Monte was actually the best example of holding position...he had already lost 2. and was about to finish in 4-5th (first half of the stage he lost almost all the lead) and he didn`t know if it was enough or not, hence the amazing end.

    That's not what was being implied, which was team-orders. Tanak was fighting for his place in Monte PS, not backing off to be sure of getting some points for the team...

    Yes, but No. 1 had a comfortable lead in P1 and Evans was also still there if it had been the worst case scenario. As long as the season is in the first half I too hope that they won`t hold them(!) back.

    I dont see M-Sport chasing Manufacturer points, especially compared to the factory teams. Their no.1 priority will be Ogier in the WDC and his team-mates supporting him by trying to take points off his title contenders.
