    I mean, I'd like to see a decent privateer in the third car ideally. Usually I don't mind, but Greensmith has no business in one.

    Jouhki is Suninen΄s manager, so he will drive next year, most probably MSport car.

    As a fact we know that TGR will continue with Evans, Ogier and Rovanperδ + Katsuta

    We don΄t know are they renting for others than "Legends" or JML

    What's with all the Greensmith hate? He's a rookie with a sponsor paying for that drive, we'd have one less car if he wasn't there.

    I suppose Toyota is all set to stay as is. At Hyundai I think only Neuville and Tanak are set, will the third car be shared by Sordo and Breen?

    At MSport realistically it will be a cost/benefit type of deal. I'd be curious to see Mikkelsen in the Ford.

    The thing is...if Gus didn't drive this season, it would be just two M-Sport cars. If they had had a third car, for, let's say, Mikkelsen, Gus would have just been in the fourth car. He doesn't take away anyone's seat. If anything, helps keeping the team in the business.

    But I agree it's frustrating to see him being so slow from year to another, and still believing(?) to be a top driver some day.

    I think he already said he's looking more at a WRC2 campaign for 2021.

    That's correct - he is paying his way and helping to keep M-Sport in the WRC.

    But as for being 'so slow from year to another' - he hasnt been that slow at times and he is still learning with no testing either.

    Personally, I just think he's a bit too 'rock star' with his approach, yet he's not got the talent to back it up. What was it he said about Rovanpera in Monte Carlo... "Kalle who?". I just don't think he's got it, but acts like he has.
