    Time for Evans to step up. High time.

    Ogier is showing how good he really is now he's are settled in to the Team and the Fiesta is developed and set-up to his liking.
    After watching the highlights and check SS times, it’s hard not to agree with Eddie: Ogier is now, with the Fiesta tuned according to his driving, a step ahead of the competition…quite a shame that Loeb wasn’t able to put more pressure on his rival, but this year title fight is looking less exciting than 2017.

    Still a long way to go, but Makinen, Nandan and Citroen people are probably starting to have some regrets...

    why would they have regrets now. Ogi is free as a bird at the end of the year, and asfar as I know there are only two seats sealed and that's Hyundai's Mikkelsen and Tanak in Toyota. Still 2 of each seats free, M-Sport 3 seats avaible and Citroen 2, maybe 3 (if they will stay in championship next year)

    It's too late for regrets. M-Sport are clearly the best team atm.

    Ogier sounds very happy with the car development and lots of upgrades are yet to go on the car, Ford is back in the mix and would probably help lifting wage raises if he demands any, Evans is a loyal number two and the Seb/Malcolm bromance is growing ever stronger.

    Tanak left Ford for Toyota because he didn't wanna play second fiddle so imagine his face if Ogier showed up there. Toyota also ask their drivers to do more promo stuff which he dislikes.

    Neuville, Mikkelsen and Ogier in one team? Cue the meltdown.

    Citroen are too stingy to pay his wages and who knows where they're going with the car.

    Last but not least, why would he leave a team that builds everything around him, listens to his wishes. He's comfy in the car, was he to change he'd have a transition period and he might not get away with it that time.

    As you might guess by now, I expect him to retire at M-Sport.

    Hyundai is most likely to go after him especially if they will not win any title this year.

    Again, they'd have three drivers fighting for the championship. Why would Ogier leave a team that builds around him for one where there is likely to be conflict.

    Just seen a tweet from M-sport that Ogier has won more rally’s already this year than last!
    I did not know that. Impressive stuff from ‘the underdogs’... keep it up.

    We've made fantastic progress with the EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta WRC this year. Four events into the season, and @SebOgier and Julien have already won more rallies than last year! Check out the highlights from our third victory of the year @TourdeCorseWRC #WRC #FordPerformance https://t.co/yDG8J5IbUL

    Ogier is not only the best driver, he's also the smartest.

    He left champions Citroen and went on to glory at VW which no-one expected. Then he switched to M-Sport which many thought stupid, and is doing the same.

    He knows where is right for himself and no-one else should be second-guessing now.
