    The article right here: http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/96731

    I started the topic because I can’t figure out witch will be the best driver to occupy Hirvonen’s seat.

    I will go for Odsberg, but still there is Solberg and also Ott Tanak

    hope he gets the seat! he’s still my favorite driver, and has shown this year (even in privateer machinery) he can still fight for rally wins..

    As likeable as Hollywood is, I think he would be the wrong choice for Ford. I’d much prefer to see Ott Tanak alongside Latvala (who is yet to be confirmed, but I think he is a safe bet for that seat).

    I don’t know much about fringe rally drivers, so I’m not sure if it’s the best decision or not, but I would like to see Solberg get the drive.

    Tanak isn’t a “fringe” driver. He did quite well in the S2000 WRC category, and he was very impressive when he got a factory-supported drive in Wales this year.
