    Adamo stopped negotiating with Tänak, M-Sport don’t want to risk everything on one driver. Seems it’s Toyota for him

    The more precise citation from that article would be "MSport hasn't found money for Tanak".

    If that is the case then the big question with regards to Msport are:
    - will they try to aim for any championship? Imo they could have a decent shot at manu title, but they would need to pay at least one established driver (Latvala/Mikkelsen/Meeke in about that order of probability)
    - if they stay in "money making" mode will Evans leave for some decent salary at Toyota or Hyundai?

    Millener actually says in the story that they don't want to end up in Ogier-esque situation again, where the whole business of M-Sport is on the shoulders of one single driver. Luring Tänak out from Toyota would probably require replicating that kind of deal.

    Tänak also said his situation with Toyota is still open. I wonder if those decisions affect his Toyota decisions. Now basically Tänak doesn't have anywhere else to go so maybe he must compromise his salary?

    I would assume it's prerequisite in every contract Tommi makes, that the other party must refrain from speaking anything meaningful when in contact with media.

    Finnish media IS reporting that Tänak is about to land a monster deal with Toyota. It is understood that the biggest obstacle has not been money, but Tänak's demand of clear number one position in the team for next year, which Mäkinen has traditionally been reluctant to give to any driver. Bunch of other things as well, but unfortunately I have no time to write longer.

    In the article Jouhki also says that Latvala's situation "is not looking bad". Whatever that means.
