    Probably loose change compared to what Red Bull is spending in Formula 1

    He also says he might do some ERC events next year, and one option would be to sacrifice full WRC season for good results in single rallies, although it would not be optimal. He says being a privateer does not work with the new cars, since they need so much support from the factory.

    It's been quite clear his car has had problems that the factory cars never had.

    When are the FIA making a decision on four car teams? Fourth MSport car would be a good role for him.
    If they went to four car teams to 2018, would it be too late to announce it now?

    I hope it is not the case. If he'd retire "just" because of this, he'd be boring so say the least. I'm confident he can find a solution though.

    6 events for Suninen sounds good to me. Not too few, not too many. Hopefully with R5 in between.

    And probably Ogi don't want to risk his reputation by going into Citroen. Maybe if they do good on Australia, but I doubt that. I think that if he got 5 mio on the table, Citroen maybe place a little higher or the same.. Like they say how badly they want him it's no point giving him less than that.. Or otherwise they are cheap as hell.

    Sweden, Portugal, Sardegna/Turkey, Finland, Catalunya and Wales would probably be a good season. But will there be budget left for R5 runs, and for sure he couldn't do enough for a proper WRC2 campaign.

    Been courted by the organisers of the Maspalomas Rally in GC next week. Will get another family holiday out of it if nothing else!
