After the announcement of Ott Tänak's departure at Hyundai next season, in the wake of his first world title, it is the uncertainty on the side of Toyota for 2020. For the moment, only the champion WRC2 Kalle Rovanpera has signed , none of the two holders at the Estonian side this season, Kris Meeke and Jari-Matti Latvala, have been extended, so we need to find a replacement in Tänak. If the names of Thierry Neuville (Hyundai) and Sébastien Ogier (Citroën) circulated, the hypothesis Elfyn Evans would also be considered.
The 30-year-old Welsh official M-Sport driver on a Ford Fiesta since 2013 (86 WRC starts for one win and nine podium finishes) visited the Toyota factory in Finland last week, according to information from Motorsport.com. And he would be very much appreciated by Tommi Mäkkinen, the director of the Toyota WRC program. Nevertheless, it is not certain that the M-Sport team lets it slip easily.
