    Shame for Elfyn, as doubled1978 wrote, he has shown great speed there before.

    And M-sport chose.. Gus..instead of double WRC2 champion Tidemand, as a sub for Elfyn? Really? Yes, of course GG had an ok run in Portugal, and he has good potential in the long run but come on, Portugal could be the easiest of all rallies to start with a new car and Pontus has year after year shown superb speed, talent and beat GG on home turf in Wales less than a year ago in R5-cars... there has to be something else behind this choice.

    Evans's bad landing in RallyEstonia on SS2 - https://youtu.be/ONlIXLrVNis?t=18

    Not sure this is the (only) reason.

    I guess GG is paying some money to start? Cause I also think Tidemand would be the more logical choice (or Østberg but he is probably under some contract from Citroen).

    Anyway for GG I am not so sure it's such a great idea as Finland is really hard to be competetive on.

    Emil should replace GG. If possible the only thing MW have to pay is expencies for PET. The rest of staff and hotels etz is there already...

    Maybe Pontus will be in R5.

    GG:
    Thank you @msportltd @fordperformance for putting your trust in me by giving me this opportunity in the @OfficialWRC again.

    MW really speaks highly of him and he could well have given Gus the chance without any strings.

    We'll know when we see his car livery...

    Cmon, why put Tidemand in WRC car, if he hasn't been driving WRC2 during this year.. Gus getting the chance is awesome, although Finland won't be easy, but hope he does fine!

    After the entries are closed, you can only change one of the drivers or the car. So M-Sport upgraded Greensmith from R5 to WRC? And thus no one else could drive the remaining R5?

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    In any case, I'm surprised if he's not sporting Crown Oil livery

    Basically yes, but ...

    Hyundai did change drivers after the entries were closed...

    So, I believe that in this case M-Sport can choose another PRO driver.
