    Tidemand still has an option for one year at Skoda, but I'm sure he would like to already step up to WRC. There was a rumor of Kopecky going elsewhere, but I guess it didn't work out after all. I'm guessing Skoda will have Kopecky and Veiby next year. Nordgren's performance in Wales will probably be crucial for his next year drives.

    Now there's really only one moving part in the puzzle and it's Ogier. If he stays at M-Sport, there's one vacant seat of Tänak's (assuming he's off to Toyota). If Ogier goes to Citroen or retires, there's two seats at M-Sport. And there's three potential drivers for those seats: Suninen, Camilli and Tidemand. And finally, we don't know if Evans is going to do another year in the DMack car or drive just for M-Sport.

    I would be surprised if Veiby isn't in the works seat next year, he is with Even management and at this stage he is quicker and more experienced than Nordgren.

    Maybe they will send Nordgren to APRC?

    Agreed, Nordgren isn't yet ready for WRC2

    Veiby is surely there. He has showed his speed and is ready.

    Was thinking the same that if Nordgren is able to drive clever rally in Wales he will be SKODA´s 3rd driver. APRC and some WRC and Finnish Championship events would be great for him...

    I would say Aki Mökkönen, because he is very fast!
