"it is already more than a match for the Ford and Citroen"

I wouldn't say so. Got great potential but another quote in the interview sums in up..."What if". That's what the Mini program will always be. What if BMW didn't feck over WRC and treat it like a cynical marketing tool as it has with other forms of motorsport.

A challenging WRC team isn't build on the strength of an engine alone, is it. Especially if the chosen car is a giant tupperware with no factory backing, the team has no sponsors to speak of and is unable to secure a name driver to give it a much needed profile boost. So, what gives? Yeah, call Toyota, offer your services to Hyundai (who seems to be immersed in inauspicious secrecy with its i20 project), anything else would be preferable.
