@Craig. I wouldn't put Matt in the same league as Block. I might be wrong here and please correct me if I am, but Matts drive is mostly financed by M-Sport and Stobart. So he is financed by the teams sponsors who would sponsor the team regardless of the drivers name. If this is correct then IMO he's taking up a seat that should be given to someone more capable. Block and Raikkonen are backed by sponsors, that sponsor the drivers themselves and would not sponsor the teams without those drivers.

On another note even if Matt did finance his on drive, Block and Raikkonen bring visibility and interest to WRC regardless of their success, whereas Matt brings nothing more than one more also ran on the time sheets.
