    He might know something... The salary comment rings a bell since it is what I heard when I was fortunate enough to be around a few TGR guys. Seb wanted boat loads of money and offered to develop the Toyota. I don't see why he would not do the same with Citroen when the car clearly needs work. I could be wrong but he wanted 8 mil for signing with Toyota.

    We're getting close to the last announcements (presumably) so I'm going to put my final prediction here. Mikkelsen already announced he's going to be at Hyundai so the current unconfirmed drivers I put in bold:

    Citroen: Ogier, Meeke, Breen/Lefebvre/Al Qassimi/Loeb (probably 4 cars on some events, otherwise rotate as convenient)
    MSport: Tanak, Evans, Suninen (DMACK)
    Hyundai: Neuville, Mikkelsen, Sordo/Paddon (possibly 4 cars on most events, drivers nominated as convenient)
    Toyota: Latvala, Lappi, Hanninen
    OneBet: Ostberg

    Based on latest rumors I suppose Ford isn't going come with a full works team so Ogier to Citroen. Tanak decides it's better to stick with the car he developed and Ogier helped improve. MSport will build the team around Tanak with support from Evans and Suninen. Ostberg will have another season like this one and probably announce his retirement before the end of it. Hanninen will get rewarded for latest performances and loyalty.

    Yeah I'm definitely guessing, maybe should have made it more clear it's just for fun.

    some people here seem to know.

    I'm personally still believing in Tänak going to Toyota, despite the latest Brit journo article. However, I'm 50/50 between Ogier going to Citroen or staying at M-Sport by some surprising solution for funding. In any case, I hope that Suninen gets a WRC seat at M-Sport.

    Well, those who really know ( i don`t mean those, who just say they know, but aren`t going to tell), are working for the teams and would probably be punished.
