    Decent backing from Ford despite what many believe. Upto Msport to attract a title sponsor, and they've failed to deliver for so many years in that regard. Hopefully RB can properly come on board next year and onwards...., and this isn't just a random promotion of a driver.

    I get the feeling this is Red Bull backing an up and coming driver - adding to their athlete programme; rather than team sponsorship. Like 2017 Ogier had Red Bull livery, Tanak didn't as he wasn't/ isn't a Red Bull athlete.

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    I think Ford always supports when they develop a car, but running the yearly program is always up to M-Sport by themselves.

    I think Red Bull as the promoter is not really pleased to see one of the "future guys" going around in top class car with the Monster logo all over the bonnet.

    They had their chance... I'd love to see Monster come in properly and give Red Bull a kick up the arse.

    Mikkelsen has RB deal, and is working towards a deal with M-sport.
    Probably a connection here?

    they had, but until someone else came they were the brand of rallying without spending any money (in the last times). now they have again to enter the field too! for sure is good for the sport to have this sponsor battle (and for m-sport if they nail the big deal!)
