I thought Ostberg was having better results at Citroen than he ever had at M-Sport? And I'm disappointed Evans isn't getting at least one more year to show his stuff, this is only his second season in a WRC car right? Maybe he was wanting too much money?
Some people forget that he was most competitive when in a Fiesta, when he was a privateer. He's always said it's been his most comfortable car, and I'm hoping he finds the form he once had during his privateer days.

Evans might go with Bertelli, Evans is only Fast when everyone hessitate and they have his same pace because he hessitate everywhere, he is not confident and afraid to crash, Camilli i know about him but he is not mature enough to go on a manufacturer Team, but maybe ffsa money was decisive for Mr. Wilson, he might have some good results(no podiums, but better pace than Evans) and i think is a more surfaces driver, thats why Wilson pulled out Evans and Tanak, evans only Fast in tarmac because he have more grip and he felt confortable and Tanak just Fast in places where only a maniatic can go flat out, and he dislike the tarmac because his poor experience in it, and it is more technical

I always think he was more competitive before the VWs entered! He's arguably been the second most impressive driver this year, behind Ogier, if getting the best results without overdriving count for anything. He's done a great job this last year, deserves a full season next; personally I think he's improved dramatically and think Citroen might regret losing him in a year's time.

To be honest if block comes to world rx it will only be good. It will distract the Americans from global rallycrash and will bring it even more coverage. Tanner Foust should get a full world rx drive too, that would make things interesting

Foust would be another brilliant addition; he made such a great first impression when he started doing European Rallycross it would be fantastic to see him fully commit to the World Championship.

Bertelli in a "new" team for 2016 driving in Fiesta WRC prepared and run by M-Sport's customer team. No name for the team yet. Will drive all except China. http://www.wrc.com/en/wrc/news/november-2015/bertelli-in-2016/page/3028--12-12-.html

Yeah, I really like Meeke, but I'm unsure on how good he is. He can either be challenging for the lead or well off. But I would like to see him at Toyota. 2017 will definitely be an interesting year, I wonder if Volkswagen well remain as they are?

VW, they likely will, but Toyota, I'm not so sure....

Its shaping up to be a possible ego-tickler for Tommi Mak

VW will be remaining as they are, running 3 cars with the same 3 drivers, despite what has happened to VW this year.

Yes, the next Codriver for mads will be Emil Axelsson or Ilka Minor. Meeke to Toyota is really probable and we are almost at the end of the guessing  :'(

Apparently Ola Fløene is joining Mads Østberg for next season.

I can honestly say that I didn't expect that one.

Just came to post the same thing, very odd to move from the third best driver in the best team to mads at m-sport

Well Mads is the fourth best driver if you go by the final points. But I get what you mean. It's gonna be interesting to see who Andreas's new co-driver is

I could be wrong, but all I can see is Andrea's improving next year, and mads staying the same or getting worse. I like mads, but it just seems odd

Mads have objectives to achieve this two last years, that were finish all the rallyes, he said at the podcast of wrc this week that this year he will attack a lot more and he feels confortable in the Fiesta so im really looking forward to what he can do

What way do you think Thierry will go next year?
Well, it is said that Thierry do not have a good relationship with Hyundai and he want to leave but Hyundai know that if they let him go they will have another Car to beat, and i am sure that they dont mind about the thierry's results, they changed his engineer after some argues with mandan, and after that Thierry never battled the VW as he can, so i think that hyundai Gives thierry a worst Car and thats why he crashes because he needs to go flat to go con the rythm of sordo and paddon

It's unfortunate, as with M-Sport, he was coming on form.  He'd be a great team-mate for Meeke at Citroen (oh yeah, rumour has it that Abu Dhabi is back on for 2016, so they might have a full package in the pipeline).

Yeah don't get me wrong, I'd love to see mads pushing for top results, and I don't doubt his consistency this year, I just would have thought Andreas would have been a better bet, especially after Spain.

I want Thierry back in form, hope the new car is better for him. Wonder what he could do with another team?

With any other team he will fight for the top places, and i am sure if he has the same Car than sordo and Paddon he will fight also, like in sweden last year and Mexico also his pace was really good, well until he argued with nandan, he is the only man who can beat ogier and Hyundai is not using it, what a waste

Anders Jæger will be the new co-driver for Andreas Mikkelsen next year. Which makes perfect sense since he was supposed to take over from Ola in the 2017 season.
