    That's what I would call "worst case" performance wise. Money-wise it might be the preferred option.

    Couldn't Mikkelsen replace Lappi and bring funding + pace? Yeah, he's got no links to M-Sport that I know of, but it'd be a good signing ahead of 2022.

    Lets be honest - MSport cant compete with the two factory teams without an Ogier. They need to be realistic and keep money coming in to even stay in the WRC.

    Fourmaux looks a great prospect and if he's got some backing too it would make sense.

    Greensmith just pays his way and isnt taking anyones seat.

    So ho has got a chanse for wrc drive next year

    At Toyota, Ogier, Evans, Rovanperra, Katsuta.
    Hyundai, Neuville and Tanak, Breen and Sordo to share 3th car
    Of those we can be shure i think.

    Hyundai private (Lotos Orlen Poland team) Could also provide a chanse to drive some rounds for someone like Hutunnen, and Veiby.

    M sport should try to get Mikkelsen asap, together whit Sunninen. Fourmaux and Greensmith in selected rounds.

    Oliver Solberg may want to do some WRC start already to in 2021? And for Lappi it could be more difficult to find some drive.
    lukyanuk maybe? Who else?

    Why do you want to keep Suninen over Lappi?

    I feel Suninen can be blindingly fast on some stages, but seldom for a whole rally, and often break under pressure.
    Hen need to learn to drive at 99%, and be able to choose some stages to go 102%.

    Lappi was fast for a whole rally, and able to sprint for some stages.
    Seems like the Ford does not suit him.

    What development has gone into the Fiesta this year, that these two have been part of?

    Both will be good drivers if given chance to take that final step. But I guess Suninen will be there as he has Jouhki backing. Is Lappi still managed by Even?

    If he is left out of the sport 21 it will be almost criminal. He is really good, but made a HUGE mistake leaving Toyota.

    That sounds like a horrible lineup to be honest for a "factory team".

    No money, no party. Even the sponsorship is difficult.
