    I mean, obviously, half of the podcast will be about how great Kris Meeke and Citroen were in Spain

    Please remind me when Ott was being treated like a clear Nr. 2 driver? Because I haven't seen any team orders in fovour of Ogier this season...

    No, but Tanak could play hardball and say he will stay at M-Sport unless Toyota pay a fee. After all there is no shortage of money in Toyota.

    Yeah, WRC contracts are made over a weekend, it's a quick job, just write a paper, two copies, one for the team and one for the driver, both sign, that's it.

    Please remind me of a reason when team orders needed to be given thus far?

    Just a theory to make sense of the rumour.

    Not always.

    As has been explained before, it's not unusual to have ongoing rights over future earnings.

    It's well know that Neuville had to spend the first couple of years of Hyundai money paying back Malcolm and Nasser for his year in the Qatar car.

    It's well assumed that Malcolm has such rights for Tanak too. For sure he's pumped enough money in to him over the years...
