There was a moment, just a moment, after Autosport revealed Ott Tanak would be leaving Toyota, when it looked like the team might be facing something of a crisis.
Take Tanak out of a factory Yaris WRC and what did you have left at the team's Puuppola base? Yes, you had two of the fastest rally drivers in the world. But, as this year has shown, you couldn't be sure of seeing both Jari-Matti Latvala and Kris Meeke at the finish.
The combination of Latvala, Meeke and Kalle Rovanpera would have been one of the most exciting in years, but would not necessarily have put silverware on the table at the end of the season.
