Some technical problems and an off in TDC. He was off the pace in Sweden, Poland and Sardegna, but it could be down the tires.
    Hasn't had the luxury of PETs before every round either.

    Looks like Ogier is heading for the title, why would he want to leave MSport unless he is motivated by money?

    I can see Hyundai wanting to strengthen their team as they'll be annoyed at losing the manufacturers title. Maybe they'll go for Mikelssen as a fast and reliable pair of hands? Possibly at the expense of Sordo?

    Ogier is worried about Msport struggling to keep up in the development race in future years if they don't get bigger backing.

    I have a feeling Seb will agree a big deal with Citroen before Spain.

    Despite their history, going to Citroen is a bit of a gamble for anyone with the state of that car right now.

    In a Finnish TV interview yesterday with Juho Hänninen

    - How important is it to get a good result from here [Deutschland] regarding the future of your career?
    - Hard to say, you need to ask someone else. Good results are always important. For me it was important to see I've got the pace, gives me confidence for the future

    Kind of sounds like no matter how well he drives, there's no drives coming up next year.

    Imo the only option is to continue at Toyota with probably 1 year extension, can't see anyone else signing him, others will either go for proven value (Tanak, Mikkelsen) or for cheap/promising youth. Hanninen is "unproven"/uncertain performance and older (6 years older than Tanak, 8 over Mikkelsen, 10 over Lappi). So it's up to Tommi and/or Japanese.

    ------------------------------

    During the Powerstage broadcast Julian Porter said the rumors in service park about Mikkelsen were that he was talking to Hyundai and Citroen about next year and that he also wanted to drive the last 3 rallies this year in the same car (from context that probably meant C3).
