    Of course they have some power. Lockouts happened in NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL many times. In F1, drivers boycotts led by Jackie Stewarts end with 1969 Belgian Grand Prix being cancelled and 1970 German Grand Prix being organized in different location.

    What if taking care of that small amount of participants still interesting to be engaged in this sport is something "best for the sport" right now?

    Not considering Toyota's, Hyundai's and Ford's/M-Sport's opinion looks more like power-driven ego than something that could actually help sport thrive.

    How would you "force" manus if there will be no manus?

    It's a commercial series, not the rules of a sport.

    It really is a stupid strategy of the FIA to spend more money on these cars when it's clear it won't result in any more manufacturers, and will likely mean less cars because they'll have wasted money redeveloping current cars.
    Of course Hyundai will pull the plug, Mikkelsen is in the team...


    Jokes aside, everyone is agreed that todays rules not working, so something has to be changed.
    New rules has to make shure new teams shows up, if its official manufacturers or private teams with support is not that important.
    Easier for a manufacturer to support a semi-official team than a full works team i think.
    M-sport is one of them, the history of WRC has lots of these teams, prodrive/subaru as a good example thats its possible.

    All we need is to get rid of the homologation bullshit so we can have privateers building cars.

    I was sent a screenshot and had to log back in to clear out this nonsense.

    This interview stems out from a media event in Rally Portugal where multiple journalists are standing with their recording devices. Tom Howard (Motorsport.com) and Aki Hietavala (Rallyjournal) both had recorded the same answer from Cyril and both can write a story about it. RallyJournal or Rallit.fi might cite sometimes other publications but when they do, it's credited and linked correctly. They don't "take articles" from other publications, it's written in their own words. And there's also original content written, and stuff that's coming from non-English publications so there's a fair amount of value to cite them into the English speaking media.

    Carry on.
