    Id like to see Msport run Evans, Suninen and a paying Ostberg in their team next year, with perhaps the Dmack car being shared by Camilli/ Tidemand across the full year. Would be a very decent line-up all things considered.

    However it would not surprise me when Malcolm loses both Seb and Tanak (highly likely), he just decides to run all his team on Dmacks. 'Dmack Msport' is a possibility for next year I think if no backers are found.

    if Ford will not come back (very likely) and both Ogier and Tänak are leaving (very likely) and M-Sport takes both titles this year (very likely), then i think Malcolm retires at the end of this year (best time ever for retireing)

    So there will be a "Dmack Slowsonsport WRT" with paying drivers for many years...

    Absolutely no chance MSport/Malcolm retires - bet my life on that

    So with the latest developments and according to some rumors we could see:

    Citroen: Ogier, Meeke, Breen/Lefebvre/Al Qassimi/Loeb (maybe 4 cars on some events, otherwise rotate as convenient)
    MSport: Evans, Ostberg, Suninen/Camilli (DMACK)
    Hyundai: Neuville, Mikkelsen, Sordo/Paddon (possibly 4 cars, drivers nominated as convenient)
    Toyota: Tanak, Latvala, Lappi (+ Hanninen if bosses in Japan approve money to run 4 cars)

    This would be pretty balanced between Hyundai, Toyota and Citroen. Potentially the big player is Ford but the more time passes the less likely that becomes. In any case Hyundai has nicely strengthened it's lineup and will be in the fight for both titles whatever happens next year.

    Absolutely agree. As long the WRC exists M-Sport will exist as well. And if Malcolm dies someday (I hope that he will get very, very old...) there is still Matthew .

    But that`s what eib1 implied...Malcolm will "retire" as he will not travel and lead the team on every event (although happened before, due to personal reasons a securing Ogiers contract) and other M. Wilson will take over.
    He said it himself that it would be nice before he retires/pulls back from the carousel to get the WDC title.

    Discussion complicated for Ogier to Citroën, because he asks for many guarantees and for a salary deserving of his status.

    @ChristianWRC1 Wilson belt free its pilots negotiate another contract, because it has no warranty with Ford for 2018

    His last tweet sounds like a direct opposite to Wilson`s words in that Spanish interview. Although he doesn`t have a guarantee and can`t actually forbid his emlpoys thinking about their future on their free time.
