    Don't see why it bothers people to be honest, it's just a number, and standard practice nowadays, just following suit from a lot of world championships.
    It's better for the drivers, Fia, marketing, for example if you see someone with a bright yellow #46 on a cap or shirt you know who they follow.
    It's also easier to know for the fans who is driving what car if they have a permanent number assigned to them.

    Although having said that, drivers need to use a bit of caution when choosing numbers.
    I've just googled GG44 for example, and it is the code name for Amitriptyline, a medication used for depression.
    Wonder if Gus knows this!

    Should be VW or Skoda. Hope he succeed.

    Yes they do. It wouldn't be unprecedented, in the early 2000's we had Peugeot and Citroen competing at the same time, and there was an overlap with Seat and Skoda but think they only nominated one of the teams as a manufacturers entry at the time.

    Mr. Toyoda himself is passionate about motorsports and has urged other Japanese brands to step in, i don`t think a 20% ownership would get into way.

    That is one of biggest problems of rally nowadays. Make groups will not fight one against other. 1 win, yes! But 1 loose. Some little percentages ok, it is possible. But how explain Peugeot loose to CitroŽn? Or the vice-versa? The funds come from where?

    I had same thought one day. How many big automotive mergers actually we have?

    Daimler are currently alone as far as my memory serves me

    BMW Mini Rolls-Royce

    VW Audi äkoda SEAT Porsche Bugatti Bentley Lamborghini

    PSA-FCA has Maserati Alfa Romeo Lancia FIAT Dodge Chrysler Peugeot CitroŽn Opel/Vauxhall

    Renault Nissan Dacia Lada

    Toyota has Daihatsu, Lexus and Subaru (only 20%)

    TATA Jaguar Land Rover

    Hyundai Kia

    GM has Chevrolet GMC Buick Cadillac Holden

    Ford
    Suzuki
    Mazda
    Mitsubishi
    Honda


    Not much to choose if we count in who already participates, who is not interested and are driven by their global policies, some of them do not have the right segment cars and market share, some of them are not doing well...
    In that light I would be happy if no manufacture leaves and we have one more to join.
