    I've been reading a lot of rubbish on the forum lately, but this tops it. Didn't really expect such stupid reaction from you. Anyway, all this nonsense of the last posts doesn't belong in this thread, nor anywhere else on this forum.

    Yep, thread is about Mikkelsen.

    Btw, why are people assuming that it’s him that doesn’t want to get fully committed with Citroen? Veiby’s words sounded much like a pressure call for Matton to make up his mind and give Mikkelsen a permanent seat, at least till the end of the season.

    Matton still has 3 drivers under contract and surely he’s expecting to see how Meeke will return after the break; besides ’18 drivers market isn’t open yet (all waiting for Ogier moves) so why would he sign Mikkelsen if more capable lead drivers can become soon available?

    It's pretty depressing reading this forum these days so thought I'de cheer things up with some friendly banter. I hit the nail on the head though and you know it. Move along.

    what a pathetic excuse...whats so depressing here lately?


    Speaking about MIkkelsen, i dont know why but i have a feeling it will be very hard for Mikkelsen to find a seat for next year too. i see Citroen his only chance.

    I was thinking the same. If his results with Citroen are always at the bottom 5 he might not get a seat especially when guys like Sunninen are available.

    Posts like this. The whole Mikkelsen story is getting pretty tiresome.
    I see no reason as to why Toyota would not hire him? I'm sure they are smart enough to not consider his results with the Citroen when choosing drivers for next year.
    Of course he's bottom 5 when he's not driving the car over the limit.

    Hiring Tänak. Or Ogier?

    When it comes down to Suninen it's more up to whether they want a young promising talent or someone that has already won events.

    so, if i and others have different opinion from yours about Mikkelsen then this forum is depressing? Way to go dude.

    if he had shown Meekelike pace then i would hire him if i were team principal....but being slower then Lefebvre on one of his favourite events doesnt do any good for him even when considering the car.

    He was spoiled by VW, not faced extreme hardships for getting his career going like Paddon, Tänak, etc. Now when things finally got tough for him, he seems lost.

    You don't know much about Mikkelsen do you? Look up 2009, not an experience i want to go through again.
