    The other aspect is the new Regs from 2022. Who knows how Tanak might feel about driving the new hybrid cars or which team will be the best to make and develop them. It could be his ideal stepping off point.

    M-Sport believes its current driver Teemu Suninen can mature into as strong a #WRC contender as points leader Ott Tanak.

    Suninen to stay at M-Sport in 2020 seems pretty definite.

    Or he's trying to sell Suninen into other teams, with a share of the salary in mind?

    Maybe he means the one in his native Spain?

    I think a few drivers have (or had) it in their contracts that if a team gives them the initial leg up into the championship, that team gets a percentage of their future earnings.
    I may be wrong, but I’m sure Latvala and Tanak have gone through that process.

    Normally driving with M-Sport would require bringing money in. But if the team wants to invest in the driver, they let him drive without bringing the money, but at the same time they make a deal that when the driver gets in a factory team and gets paid, a part of the salary goes to M-Sport, to pay back the investment.

    But this is all speculation, whether this kind of deals even exist.
