    Is there still potential for teams to run four cars next season...

    EDIT: was too slow - as above.

    It's going to be decided soon.

    I tweeted my own speculations for four car teams last week:

    Citroen: OGI-MEE-BRE-LEF
    Hyundai: NEU-SOR-PAD-MIK
    Toyota: LAT-TÄN-LAP-HÄN
    M-Sport: EVA-ØST-SUN-CAM

    If 4 car teams go through I think you'll be pretty much spot on. Shame that'll probably mean the end of Msport as a force, unless Suninen can really step up to the big time quickly on most events (or Evans gets his hands on Michelin rubber and kicks on too).

    Agreed I think those lineups look good if that's the way the rules go. M-Sport will probably need to rope in Dmack again and privateers (Ostberg). But still some stories to be written I think.

    If they go to a four-car rule that will really spoil things IMO. As it is with three-car teams it gives a nice balance and everyone has a chance. Four cars will just favour the richest.

    Running 4th car cost less than Ogier´s salary...

    No, it will just hamper Msport which will be a shame and obviously a massive disappointment for you and the other huge Msport fans. But if Citroen announce Seb, the other three teams will all have absolutely superb lineups (even more so if Loeb stands in for Lefebrve in a few events).

    But you need to pay for a good driver to drive it. Cars dont score points on their own.

    Whichever factory team gets Ogier (assuming he doesnt retire) will have a huge advantage so the supposed big team competition wont be that great.

    If a four-cars rule comes in it will just be the factory teams wanting to get back at M-Sport for embarrassing them this season.

    You underestimate what Tanak at Toyota and Neuville at Hyundai could do against Seb in an under strength c3. Even this year Neuville would've won the title had he not been an idiot in the first two events. Jari, Meeke, Mikkelsen will also have something to say, and that's before we mention Lappi and Paddon etc.
