    McRae, Sainz, Märtin, Duval and now Tanak all lost because Ford HQ couldn't make up their minds before August/September when drivers want to put pen to paper. It's just ridiculous.

    But hey I guess I shouldn't complain after winning both championships and keeping Ogier and Evans onboard.
    For all of these guys (except Sainz) , leaving Ford proved to be the downfall of their career...

    For Solberg, leaving Ford worked mid term but in the long run, the uncompetitiveness of Subaru came back to bite him.

    Well they were both unlucky enough to have to endure the might of the Sebs.

    That's why I said worked mid term. But then, Hollywood spent 7 full seasons without a win.

    A. I am fairly sure that he would have won at least one rally between 2006-2011 behind the wheel of a Ford. And B. Hollywood was an old nickname of Petter Solberg because of his spectacular driving style.
