    i didnt gel with the team management part of dirt 4 thought it was not needed. filler. i want to rally. thats it. select car event GO! i do see how others might like it. just dont make it effect the game. one of the biggest things with the world championships and dirt 4 you couldnt access certain settings without having unlocked them for the cars. not well thought out.
    Yeah, I'm the same. I know some people enjoyed it, but I found constantly having to renew contracts and sponsors every few races quite irritating. 
    I'm not up on it, but why would you as a driver have to constantly make licensing deals and contracts all the time? Aren't their managers for that sort of thing?
    The idea is that you're your own team director. It's not really important, but it gave you something to work towards other than just buying more and more cars.
    Yeah, I can understand the intention, I would have just preferred if you could pick your team and sponsors and have them on an indefinite contract. So if you want to keep looking for better staff/sponsors you can, but if you just want to sort a team and then carry on racing you haven't got to keep going back and picking the same engineers again and changing sponsors. 
    Well, renewing contracts definitely isn't the funniest thing to do. They could remove that entirely.

    I think a team management can work. But rather work with seasons/championships/tier based

    Tier 1
    - Maximum weekends that you can do in one season are 8 weekends. So for example you can do a championship of 5 rounds and choose if you do 1, or 2, or 3 extra guest entries somewhere and if you can find budget for that. 
    Tier 2
    - Maximum weekends that you can do in one season are 10 weekends.
    Tier 3.
    Etc. 

    - Team personnel you give a contract for a season or multiple seasons. So not that in the middle of an event is gone. If you do multiple championships you might need to get more personnel, or hire personnal for an event or two if the capacity is not enough. 
    - Based on type of car, championships, reputation you can hire better personal. A top mechanic want to work on a WRC / WRX Supercar, instead of 2wd R2 Fiesta. But if you have a good reputation, good performances on track, maybe a top mechanic want to work with you in the RX S1600. 
    - A sponsor can be for a season or championship. After the season your sponsor is happy and want to invest more or if not happy, could leave. For the guest entry in a other championship you might be able to look for an event sponsor.

    Little rumor going around on a french rally forum from a well known codriver.

    Apparently Luis Moya (Sainz codriver) will be in charge of the notes in spanish.
    And Stephane Prévot (codriver of Atkinson, Duval and a lot of other official drivers) for the notes in french

    Looks like the infos were right, Stephane Prévot for french codriver :

    What if they made it so if you keep changing the setup of your car or break it too much the mechanic just gets **** and starts shouting, drinking heavily, throwing things around and then walks out mid event?

    It's been like that for years... quoting in this forum is a pain in the ass. Why don't they give us simply quotation marks based code like <quote> and </quote> it would be much more easier.
