    With regard to the Meeke/Ogier relationship, I do recall seeing pictures a couple of seasons ago (may have been vt on wrc program) where meeke was having a bit of car trouble, and Ogier was taking a look seeing if he could help out, between stages.

    I don't see that behaviour happening between two drivers that don't get on OK.

    From what I can see there seems to be a healthy respect for each other. And that's all you need.

    It takes all the pressure and limelight off Meeke - even more so if Loeb joins. He can just concentrate on doing the rallies and build back up. Plus he has a perfect benchmark in Ogier.

    Meeke spoke numerous times last season saying he would have no problem working with Ogier at Citroen. Think it was a certain Belgian who is apparently notoriously difficult to work with and get along with for some people, who was the only driver Meeke wasn't keen to have alongside him in the team.

    Yeah but what are the odds Freddy Loix would come out of retirement anyway?

    Done & dusted as they say....or is it? Time will tell if Loeb is in (although imho he'll probably be there a bit for 2018).
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Note that the test road on the vid is quite smooth and wide.

    Not saying that's necessarily bad idea since it's the first gravel test for him, but it certainly isn't the kind of gravel surface the C3 has struggled on so far.

    rear of car called into question again. at least the demigod has confirmed what the other mear motal drivers have been saying about the C3 since its inception.

    With all this talk of Loeb coming back next year will Daniel Elena also be returning?

    I believe that if Loeb returns it would be only with Daniel Elena. They are testing together and from the tweets from Daniel it looks like he hasn't nothing against doing some rallies again.
