Well as I said in another post on here, I can See JM going back to Ford if Ford Return in an official capacity, then you would have a very exciting WRC with 4 fairly evenly Matched Teams :

Ford
Latvala
Hirvonnen
Elfyn Evans (third driver)

VW
Ogier
Mikkleasen
Essapekka Lappi (third driver)

Citroen
Meeke
Ostberg

Hyundai
Neuville
Sordo

I agree completely.
Andreas is still learning at this level and Volkswagen is the perfect place to perfect his skills.
As long as he keeps his head and keeps the car rubber side down for sure he will be a future title contender.
As you said, Volkswagen have it fully sorted in the WRC, Two world class drivers and a 3rd up and coming world class driver to fill in as the situation requires.
I just hope it does not become total domination of the sport and 'boring'

Very Cunning and calculating of VW, In Andreas they have a driver that would otherwise be scoring points for another Rival Team. Here they have him signed up to a 2nd Tier Team keeping him from doing damage to them from the outside, also if anything happened to the Jari Matti or Ogier they have a Top driver who can step straight in and be upto speed with the Car and the Team

Very Good and very thorough of Volkswagen. A complete Strategy.
