Ford could be positioning itself to support private teams rather than owning an operating its own team. They get the same exposure for a lot less money. They have been relatively successful doing this as can be seen by the number of private Fiestas being entered and their high placings. I don't think Ford could care less what driver wins as long as they (Ford) win the manufacturers title.
