I suppose anything is possible, but I feel any wins will not come from outright speed, and, by going into the year with wins in mind, the bodyshop could be very busy at M sport.

Guess they have to aim to win as there's not point competing otherwise...although it's probably a bridge to far (great film btw) for m-sport.

I see Matty is back in WRC2, might work out better for him.

I thnk it has been difficult for Malcolm for the past few seasons, as several times Ford have considered pulling out of the WRC having failed to win any Major Titles, this has put huge pressure on Malcolm to get wins for the Team to Keep Ford at the Party

I think this is the primary reason why you have seen both Jari Matti and Petter crashing so much, maybe now that Ford have finally Quit Malcolm can relax a little and the Results may come without the Huge Pressure

I think that Thierry and Mads can get wins this season, and maybe even Novikov too, but thats assuming that the Polo needs more development, if its right on the Button then its Really Game over

I swear this is a hollywood movie script.

A coach with a losing record has one last chance to win the big game. He assembles a ragtag bunch of outsiders whom may seem like longshots, but the coach sees something special in each of them. In a series of unorthodox and some hilarious training montages, these crash happy nobodys turn into future champions.

Anything with Wilson involved is a no brainer. My only grief is that Ford threw in the towel rather than Wilson. He probably took a good portion of their (Ford's) budget too to pay himself a handsome salary and pension.
