Do you guys really believe propagating one before another here will make any difference? The money rules in WRC and in teams also, that's the way it is. Meeke might be much more talanted than Wilson, and I also believe he is, but unless he finds lot of money, the situatuion will be as it is.

Besides BMW already abandoned Prodrive where he was and Motosport Italia (or it was Portugal?!?) has other agenda there.

Yeh its frustrating to see Meekes talent being wasted, what makes it more dissapointing is to constantly read comments about Aroujo aiming for the Top 10 ! BMW must of really fallen out with Prodrive to back such a lack lustre team, Nobre is just hoping to stay on the road

Nobre might be a really nice guy and be passionate about Rallying but the WRC should be for Talented drivers who have flair and attack, surely BMW are now regretting backing Mini Team Portugal having constantly seen comments like a Top 10 is my Aim, and I just want to stay on the road until the finish

Meeke would be aiming for at least a Top 5 and staying on the road until the finish is always any drivers goal, surely it would of been cheaper for BMW to just fund the 2nd seat at Prodrive than to Fund Mini Team Portugals 2 car team plus pay all the development to Prodrive too

This is why motorsport sucks. Stick and ball sports allow talented people who are dirt poor to become superstars. In motorport if you aren't born into a pile of money you will never get to the top ranks these days.

Until that changes, the sport will never bet as great as it could be.

I think the reason Nobre & Araujo are 'works' drivers is due to them having sponsorship in place to do the full season. I doubt very much that BMW are funding that team in which case you can be sure they ain't funding the development programme with Prodrive. The farce of BMW and their lack of interest on rallying will be egg on our faces when they prove it was a brilliant decision the concentrate all the money on the DTM project !!!
