    I believe Evans wrote that Tänak chose Ford for 2018 also...

    Also there is that little thing called army service, which Rovanperä starts this autumn. Not something that helps one to test-train for the following season, in a totally new environment.

    Tänak also wrote in his blog that "the rumors of me changing teams is wrong" just before the announcement

    1. Evans says that Meeke is going to Toyota
    2. Mäkinen says Meeke is not going to Toyota
    3. Meeke actually goes to Toyota

    Just reminding that Evans got that right, and Mäkinen denied it in the first place. Although I'm not 100% sure of the timeline, I remember 1-2. happened in early summer 2018 and Meeke later said he didn't contact anyone until Rally Finland 2018.

    Kalle himself says also that he doesn't know anything about the contract.

    I wouldn´t be surprised if Kalle has contract for 2020. No smoke without a fire...

    Wilson has made it clear he only wants a top driver if he is to change his line-up in 2020 (ie. Tanak).

    Latvala would likely have to bring budget to drive a 3rd Fiesta.

    I wonder if Toyota are considering a shared drive between JML and Kalle? Sordo has had his best season by doing a part time program, could well suit JML as well... And allowing Kalle to mature and learn slowly but surely.

    Meanwhile Rovanperä senior has said there is nothing certain yet.
