    Looks like Ogier will get that 3rd place, so if he gets 1 point in the power stage he'll take the championship.

    Hope he takes a wheel off.  Just to spice things up a little

    YES M-SPORT! 

    So Happy for Wilson, and the team. Incredible effort in a competitive and challenging season. 

    Manufacturers Title, Drivers Title, and Elfyn with the home-rally win! :D

    It's Ogier then. He surely deserved it but I hoped we'd see a fight for the championship up until the last rally. Congrats to him, he did a great season and he's been very consistent. Awesome that M-Sport have won the constructors, hopefully they'll convince Ford to support them now so they can keep Ogier. Fight's on for next year!

    Probably helps that he wasn't driving an i20 for that.

    Anyways this is a golden opportunity falling right into Ford's lap. They would have to be fools not to open the purse strings just a little to keep Ogier in a ford next year. Ogier, Elfyn, and Suninen would be another team to beat next season.

    I'm so happy for M-Sport! Well deserved titles and win on their home rally! Also Dmack - they got what have been robbed from them before :)

    While I’m happy for both Ogier and M-sport (modstly m-sport) I cant help but to feel a bit disapointed that the championships are wrapped up now. Now Rally Australia will feel even more pointless.

    Hard to say a World Rally feels pointless when you think the next one will be the Monte in 2018 ;) 

    I know that feeling tho, I'm a Ferrari fan in F1, Neuville fan in WRC, Toyota fan for the LeMans 24h and I was hoping for Alonso to win the Indy500. Now I'm left hoping for the impossible to happen at Valencia so Dovizioso can win in MotoGP otherwise I could rename 2017 "The Year of Broken Promises"

    Neuville has always had a Championship in him.  I feel he’ll take a new-found confidence into 2018 & be hard to beat.  He deserves to be the one to take Ogiers crown
  • tbtstttbtstt Member Champion
    Fantastic result for Evans and M-Sport. I was torn on Ogier winning at the start of the year, but he hasn't run away with the Championship and it's been a great title fight: though it is a shame to see it over with a round to go! 

    That said, with the title secure, I'd like to Ogier go for broke in Australia. 

    Difficult to make any guesses for 2018 until we figure out who is going where, Neuville is surely going to be determined to beat Ogier though!

    Ott will certainly be in the mix too!  If Mikkelson stays Hyundai, things will be interesting.  I just wish Citroen would come to the party
  • juu1iusjuu1ius Member Race Steward
    If Ogier stays with M-Sport, it will be between him and Neuville and maybe Latvalas (his last chance) for championship. 2018 will be difficult for Ott, new car and no setups from last year, even though he's brilliant with engineers, i'm not hoping for much.
  • DytutDytut Member Champion
    Ogier's eyes tearing up at the finish line says it all. This year's title was something special :-)

    Such a good 4 day’s in Wales! Walked miles, driven even further! I’ve got tonnes of videos I’m trying to put together at the moment! Found a nasty little corner on Gwydir yesterday, was surprised it didn’t catch any wrc drivers out, but it wasn’t long until a couple of wrc2 drivers had some big moments, and then this happened:

    Both were ok and managed to carry on straight away, they were busy restarting the car when I opened the door to check they were ok! had an R2 Peugeot go straight on and ended up right on top of the bank which we had to push off, and a Subaru in the nationals did the same but managed to keep going!

    Dump Citroen, bring back VW.  Love to see Meeks (if there is a 2018 season for him) in a VW.  But chances of this happening .. ever

    Citroen car Will be competitive next year, next year Will be really balanced like this year between the manufacturers, in 2019 they have more jokers to develop the Cars.

    once the Yaris' problems get ironed out,Toyota will be very competitive .I just hope they stay in it and im hoping for Subarus return eventually

    I don't think we have to worry about Toyota staying the course, I read somewhere that they're looking to make a homologation special Yaris just to make the car more competitive.

    Really late post but I'm glad that M-Sport could take both championships. It's awesome they use the Ford cars and I hope they get manufacture support.
