I have a feeling VW will sign Mikiklesen not as a 3rd driver but as their 2nd driver, thus giving the 3rd Full time seat to Sepp Weigand, they really want a German Driver and at 21 I think they will find the temptation to much to resist

Ogier is the star and he will be the King at VW with Mikklesen relieved to finally become a WRC Works driver and playing the Points game like Hirvonnen. Otherwise they will have 4 drivers and only 3 seats. Mikklesen is already confirmed so If Latvala does sign they have to drop young protogee Weigand

I think Latvala can do well staying at Ford and gaining in Confidence and Solberg is a Very Good Driver and this will be Good for Ford while Tanak comes on as a Driver to the point where he can possibly Replace Solberg for 2014 and be in a position to win Rallies, then Ford will have a Complete Driver Line up in a fully confident Latvala and Tanak, hopefully both winning lots of Rallies
