    If they are going to have so many drivers in the teams why not go back to the 2003-2009 points system when you had 10 for the win and etc. etc.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Yes and that is stupid imo cause it really forces teams to go with 4.

    4 nominated and 2 scoring would be much better. Some rallies teams would run with 3, some with 4. Or if one team has more money and always uses 4 it's not much of an advantage vs 3 good drivers, if any.

    Just a speculation, but I can see Dani Sordo ending up at the new team of Guerlain Chicherit in World RX. Maybe there is still a connection to Prodrive after the time when he was driving the Mini...

    To be honest my wish was that Ford would come back or some major sponsor would help Wilson and he could retain the same line-up. Tänak is getting on really well with Ogier and as you see M-sport is kicking everyones ass this season. Evans has also progressed and shows great speed. and i think they would have been even better next season.


    But now it seems they will have a hard time next year.
    Not got time for a long explanation but just think back to before the season started.

    Hyundai had a great driver line-up. Citroen had taken a year out to prepare and test the C3. Even Toyota had built their car earlier and had a hugely bigger budget. Everyone thought M-Sport would struggle. Ogier was the man but had no time in the car. Tanak wasnt yet a proven winner. Evans was just back from R5 season.

    WRC could do with a few Formula one sponsors to run 4 car teams.

    Very much in support of the 4 car team rule. With three car teams there are still not enough seats for the amount of talent out there, and if a team can't afford four paid drivers they can always put their moneyed guys like Al Qassimi or Ostberg in the fourth car to mop up points.

    How much is Evans getting paid ? How about Suninen? Östberg?
    Do you really think that those how are without contract want big money ? I´m pretty sure that Bonusmoney for good results is enough for them.

    I was talking about the cost of running a 4th car AND paying a driver.

    Plus Ogier's salary for 2017 is a one-off paid by M.Wilson. That money will not be available again to fund a 4th official car in 2018.
