M-Sport: We don’t want to lose Tanak from WRC team

After rejoining the Ford squad for the 2023 season, the 2019 world champion, Ott Tanak, is currently on a one-year deal. As teams begin to plan their driver line-ups for the 2024 season, Tanak is expected to play a key role in the driver market. While his return to M-Sport has been challenging, including a victory in Sweden and a second-place finish in Croatia, a combination of misfortune and reliability issues have dropped him out of the title race. With Thierry Neuville as the only contracted driver for next year, Tanak could have options outside of M-Sport. Toyota boss Jari-Matti Latvala has expressed no intentions of changing his team’s line-up, but there have been rumors linking Sebastien Ogier to Hyundai. M-Sport’s team principal, Richard Millener, is hopeful to continue with Tanak but acknowledges the need to be realistic about their options and the importance of funding for securing his services for the next season.
