Hopefully their ambition will make up for a lack of experience. I can see Lappi and Sunninen getting the results

Very disappointed not to see Meeke or Breen in the M-Sport line up. Greensmith is a wasted seat in my personal opinion.

Breen seems to still have one foot in the Hyundai camp so maybe that's a factor? Meeke would probably cost too much for M-Sport - and although it pains me to say this - I think Meekes time has gone (and the same applies to Latvala too). He's had the chances and ultimately not delivered, better to look for drivers with potential and try and hone one of those into a winner - Lappi and Suninen could be the one (not so much Greensmith).

I think a seat at M-Sport is dependant on $$$$

Greensmith has the funds for a seat, the others don't. Lappi has personal backing from the Finnish forestry company Ponsse......

Bit harsh perhaps, let's see if he can develop into something.

The guy apparently has photographic memory, maybe it'll make him a top driver.

I watched the live coverage of the first Monte Carlo stage last night - really impressive stuff from Ogier (unsurprisingly I guess!). Less impressive was the Fords getting leaves stuck in the grills causing them to overheat - only seemed to be a problem for the Fords

Neuville was a bit off the pace on the first stage but seemed happy enough - the second stage showed why, he'd clearly got his car set up for the second stage and blew everyone else away. So far today Greensmith and Tanak have both binned it! The Monte looks to be as challenging as ever!

Massive off for Tanak and, at the other end of the spectrum, possibly the slowest off ever in recorded history for Gus Greensmith.

I think Greensmith has links to Msport, maybe like Finlay used to have, but agreed he is good but not much better than Wilson's lad was or Camilli.

Tanak's off was scary, glad he is OK, that looked brutal and flat out.

Red Bull TV's highlights were crap today. Hardly any footage from the stages.

Great to see Elfyn Evans on the pace in a new car(to him), his hunched driving style seems most peculiar but he's obviously comfortable that way. Really hoping that the Welsh lad can get a decent result having been given a break this year with Toyota, that "off" for Tanak was absolutely frightening, how strong is that shell/cage?

From the footage OI have sen Ogier and Elfyn seem to most assured, Elfyb can certainly win this event given the breaks.

No-one else is really in it honestly! Just them and Neuville, and keep a look out for the classic Ardennes soon, I am sure Neuville will be out in his Nova again!
