    They should re-use the old Red Bull livery from Baumschlager's Focus WRC!

    Have not seen this kind of performance at all! One ERC win and that´s it. Wait and see, but can not understand this kind of hype...
    Same here. He has done good on 3 slippery tarmac rallies. How does that qualify him for doing great on mostly gravel championship I wonder.

    He certainly might become great on gravel, but so far there is little to show.

    Well, they're not going to say someone who is bringing a considerable amount of money into the team is rubbish, are they?

    at least he looks much promising than Camilli who was also another Ogier in Wilsons mind back then

    Maybe not right thread but anyways..

    Let's hope that people have enough money and resources.. and there should be awesome ,,next generation,, of young drivers, who are (stepping) in WRC cars this season..
    -Rovanperä
    -Solberg
    -Loubet
    -Greensmith
    -Fourmaux
    -Veiby/Huttunen/Gryazin/Katsuta

    *not gonna argue about their pure speed or smth, but just new guys to top cars..

    I think the hype with Fourmeaux is (i) he was quick, albeit not astonishing, out of the box with very little rally experience (remember he is a medical student - not something that give you boatloads of cahs and/or time - on a leave to try his luck in rallying) (ii) he keeps improving, slowly but steadily.

    Given how much money Red Bull pour into its two F1 teams and single seater juniors, it'd be fantastic if M-Sport could become a full Red Bull team in 2022. While I don't know why that wouldn't have appealed to Red Bull before, at least there should be some RB money freed up by Ogier leaving. It seems M-Sport have been actively trying to get their hands on that budget at least, going by Richard Milner saying "Work to reignite this partnership with Red Bull has been ongoing for quite a while behind the scenes, and it is fantastic to see it now come to fruition." I wonder if M-Sport committing to the Rally1 regs was tied to some behind the scenes agreement that WRC Promoter/Red Bull would support them if they did so...?

    Good shout Sniper. They do seem super-committed to 2022 and very bullish about their new car (if you pardon the pun )
