    Don't underestimate Toyota! They did a lot better then everybody expected. With that 1 year experience, they will be very close!

    of course money is a big part because he has a family he has to take care of. So far he drove for nothing, this year Wilson paid him but that money was nothing what Wilson is paying to Ogier...

    There's also the development factor. Tänak must know that M-Sport has no budget for same development as Toyota. In 2017 Fiesta might be the best car, but where are they in 2019?

    If it's true that the contract was made in July, Tänak made his decision before seeing the string of technical failures on Latvala's car, and Toyota sacked Hänninen before he made three best results of his season (and his whole career).

    What will be the team dynamics at TGR? To me it looks like they have three guys who are all aiming for the world title. Who can they tell to ease off and secure manufacturer points?

    Lappi aiming for world title in 2018 is a bit of stretch.

    Well thats the thing, we can speculate and argue here but the reality is that the teams and drivers know better how the things work and whats best for them....im sure Tänak and Märtin talked every detail of this move through before joining.

    How long is the contract anyway? Surely not just a year...?
