    I think it's unlikely. The drivers that try to break trough go there and pay to show that they are good relative to established drivers.

    If they get good result on different tires everyone says "meh the tires must be helping them a lot", if they get bad result it's more likely " maybe It's because og the tires". Evans drop from 2017 to 2018 can be used as an example too.

    Evans had a full season in 2018 and didn't win, so it will be hard in 2019

    I don't think anyone really believes that, including Millener (and Wilson), but what else is he going to say? He's factually correct about the car, but there's no way to cover up the loss of one of the most successful drivers in the sport.

    I hope Malcom wil "help" Pontus to get more drives this year. I feel it is there chanse for best results in some rally's.
    I know he has not proven anything yet in a wrc car, but he has the talent, and knows most of the rally's.

    Most of the time he was driving slow just for frenchie. And almost lost a seat because of his loyalty to the team.

    Millener was talking about the team operating at the same level (not the drivers) and yes, they can.

    As for rally wins, Ogier didnt actually win that many rallies at M-Sport.

    I’m not so sure....

    Millener: "In reality there is nothing that we can't do again that we've done the last two years."

    Is he suggesting they can win one or both championships again?

    Why didn’t they just say they would like to get a few wins and acknowledge that this would be a massive success, given the drivers they have and the competition they are facing?

    It seems ridiculous to set the bar so high.

    What do you think he has to say then? "We should be happy with a finish in top 5, podium would be be great..." I think he'd get a phone-call from some people at Ford... It's his job to keep everyone motivated to do their absolute best and aim high, you cannot give up before the season even started.

    They could sign a driver who could actually win a event, be consistent and most importantly be in top 5 on almost every rally.
