    There has been a real change in Evans in the last 18 months.

    Winning rallies in the BRC in 2016 (and the Title) was a real booster. Plus a maturity with age has made a huge difference. He is very calm and also relaxed now.

    He said he has learned from team-mate Ogier who he has modelled himself on. Tanak also helped as he went through the same DMACK route.

    I think Evans is going to be a real WRC contender in the future.

    If Ogier retires, there will be no car number 1 next year? M-Sport would get 2, 3 and 14? Or would the allocations be 2-4, 5-7, etc? What if he initially "retires", M-Sport is allocated the first three numbers, then Ogier makes a comeback with, say, Citroen at the middle of the season? Will he get number 1 and will Citroen get 2 and 3 as well?

    But it's an interesting question, whether you consider it theoretical or not. When Loeb retired in 2012, he still did a partial program in 2013 starting from Monte so it was natural to give 1-2-3 numbers to Citroen and then they used a higher-numbered driver when Loeb wasn't driving. If Ogier is not at any team at the beginning of the season, M-Sport would get the lowest numbers for the season for being the manufacturer champion. But if Ogier returns later with another team, would he still get number 1? Or would he get 1 but M-Sport would still be 2 and 3, or would Ogier's team be 1-2-3?

    The team with world Champion has 1-2-3 on the cars. Like this year. If Ogier stay with M-Sport, it will M-sport 1 2 3 hyunday 4 5 6 Toyota 7 8 9 and CitroŽn 10 11 12.
    If ogier goes to other team for example CitroŽn. The French team gets the 123 and M-sport 456 and so on.
    If Ogier leaves I don't for sure but I was thinking the vice champion could be no 1. Or Tšnak or Neuville. And their teammates has 2 and 3.

    Yes, those cases are 100% clear. But if Ogier retires, it gets to a situation we have never seen before. And even more so, if he comes back in the middle of a season to a team that he wasn't affiliated with in the beginning of the season.

    There might be something I don't get, but how would that situation differ from the one we had in 2013, when Loeb (as a reigning champ) did only few selected rounds? Loeb had '1' on those rallies he participated in, and for the rest of the rounds Citroens were usually numbered 2, 3 and 10.
