    Well, he already uses TGR services in Dakar (yes, different, but both represent the factory), has the money. Why not.

    The more new generation WRC cars that are on the stages, the better! And Nasser is a level or two above Sheikh Khalid and Bertelli etc....

    Really doesn't sound crazy to me. Entirely possible once Tommi said they'd be up for it sometime in 2018. Given that Nasser thought funding a VW team was doable, surely funding a Toyota for a few rallies would be a lot more easier/realistic.

    Rumor has it hanninen might be brought in as a 4th driver as well depending on standings

    Nasser is capable of doing decent. Would be awesome do see Gronholm in a yota.

    How would that work? The fourth driver can't take manu points away from Ford or Hyundai and Hanninen won't finish ahead of Ogier or Neuville in any rally.

    In Finland it happened, so it could happen again; although it increase chances to take points away if rally2 happens Ogier or Neuville, or anybody else...

    More drivers are in no way a disantvantage, so if they have the budget, why not?

    I'd love to see Hanninen in the car again. But as a fourth driver he wouldn't be nominated for points in Finland. And with only two guys able to score manufacturer points anyway he would literally be invisible on the leaderboard. He's not helping anyone - except Toyota PR.

    But Toyota have budget and it would be a nice reward for Juho's testing duties to run a car on home ground where it is logistically very easy.
