    Out of ERC field I'd love to see Gryazin in WRC2. Isn't he well backed up?

    Well, what Tanak is saying in above article has been known to him for a long time. Why didn't he reject Toyota deal right from the beginning then?
    1. Toyota didn't not offered enough as compensation for what he is about to loose leaving M-Sport?
    2. Something to do with Ogier?
    3. Something else?

    Yes, rich Daddy but the boy has talent too.

    I'd like to see him try and take the overall ERC title first and then move on to WRC2.

    There have been many good talents emerge in the ERC in the last few years but finance is almost always the dictator of their future career.

    My favourite was Ralfs Sirmacis - he showed real speed and talent winning three European events in 2016, yet has now disappeared through lack of funding.

    Here's my humble speculation about Ott:

    When things are not clear it's often because parts are negotiating and they are trying to get the most out of that negotiation. So Tanak is, in my opinion, presumably going to sit in a Toyota next year but he is taking time to have a good agreement, and I mean not just in terms of money. In order to do that he's saying, also publicy how good he is in M-Sport and that they are the best team. That would increase his value? We just have to wait.

    Audi to pay Ogier's salary next year and let him drive for M-Sport to do the championship, whilst developing the Audi S1 WRC for a full return of Audi in 2019.

    Margus Murakas, rally driver from Estonia, created Audi S1 rallycar for Rally Saaremaa, and it looks so damn nice
