I think Ostberg is much faster than Sordo and has had a great season. I think he proved he can run at the front. I don't see him taking it though. Remember, its not a full season seat. Wouldn't Citroen moving Neuville up make more sense? He showed good pace this year as well. Not sure on Sordo- does he have any ride next year at all? Is mini out for next season? But Sordo just doesn't make sense. They need someone that is competitive on gravel since Seb will invariable run all the tarmac runs. So Sordos specialty isn't needed.

I'm curious who Hyundai will pick up. I actually see good fit for Solberg there. For better or worse one thing they will get with him is press. Not to mention the fan base which I think are good things for a team in the building phase.

I think Sordo would fit better on the team since he already has so much experience and would be a really good complement to Hirvonen's gravel consistency with his tarmac expertise. Ford might end up running with Petter and Ostberg if that happens (Norwegian Duo?). Ostberg seems like he's ready for the big leagues after being a privateer for so long.
