    Getting Ogier was a guaranteed chance to win the title, and I bet he was able to get Ogier a bit cheaper thanks to VW still having to pay him for 2017.

    That was a game, nothing more.
    More cynicism.

    I think he would've genuinely re-signed Tanak if he would come back.

    Just like why Toyota have grabbed him now...

    Wilson wants to win Titles and like the others that needs a Top Driver. When he got one he paid him and wouldve continued to but Ogier though Citroen was a better bet.

    He hoped winning the title would get ford to step in again.

    Of course he wants to win titles. But that is only secondary. He is running a business, making a big profit is his first concern.
    The only reason malcolm needs good results, is to attract sponsors.

    I also believe "chasing Tänak" was only Wilson's game in trying to jack up Tänak's price, so he would get a bigger share.

    When we compare the situation of Wilson getting Ogier in 2017 and Tänak for 2020
    - VW probably paid something to Ogier, Tänak didn't have an exited manufacturer paying him anymore
    - Red Bull probably secured a big part of the budget, what could Tänak bring?
    - M-Sport hadn't won the titles before as a private team, now they have already done that as a stunt
    - And again, if Wilson had been paying Tänak, he wouldn't get the aforementioned extra share
