I think this is a bit of a last chance saloon for Mikko at M-Sport Ford.

I hope he does well in 2014 but I fear it may be his last chance to become WRC champion.

Good luck Mikko

Mikko is only 33, he had lost his Mojo at Citroen, I suppose its been like dumping a girlfriend to be with someone else only to regret it but its too late to go back. Here Mikko gets to step back in time and I have a feeling he will surprise a lot of us next year with his sudden return to form

Elfyn could also go well and could even get the odd podium in the second half of the season. Kubica could get podiums on sealed surfaces too.

In Fairness I think Malcolm has done extremely well given the lack of Top Drivers with 2 new Teams soaking up 4 of the Top Drivers in the Sport and One Major Retirement.

Mikko with his return to his "home",as he said,probably he's gonna find his form again and he will be able after the first rally to deliver good performances again.With Seb Ogier obviously the most favourite for the win in every rally and for the title of course,I think that Mikko will fight with Thierry Neuville and Jari Matti Latvala this year for the second place in the championship and maybe he will take one or two wins.But realistically I don't think he's gonna be able to catch the level of Ogier,something that is also for the other drivers.But definitely he will be better than when he was with Citroen.
