Problem for Mini driver Dani Sordo is his contract is with Prodrive, not BMW. Hope he solves it somehow and can drive the Mini. He was doing pretty well.
Mini actually asked Kris Meeke to pay for his seat this year.
That's never a good sign.
What I've been reading between the lines is that FIA overplayed their hand and didn't manage to find an agreement with ES in time for Sweden. That doesn't mean that there won't be some deal later on.
