    If Ogier leaves for Citroen I think he'll regret it. As they say, never go back..

    Big question is if they get their man how does that team come together next year? Unless they run four cars someone is getting turfed out. Loeb/Lefebvre sharing a car seems to make sense. You have to wonder if it's between Kris and Craig for the other seat...

    Again I think the four-car rule is needed to save the career of Sordo, Hanninen and maybe Meeke?
    As far as im aware Meeke is there next year for the full season, can't see that changing now. If/when Citroen announce Seb they will have not only filled their need for a French driver, but will have signed the best driver in the world. Someone is going to have showcase the new C3 R5s potential and that is a perfect role for Lefebrve (maybe Breen on 1 or 2 events).

    Citroen/ PSA can't just expect that car to sell really well off the back of the last 3 cars being iffy (C3, two R5s). Maybe stepping back for a year like Evans would benefit Lefebrve too, as he has been hugely out his depth this year. No pace and constant crashing.

    Unfair to Lefebvre, who was the leading CitroŽn in Poland. He's been nowhere pace wise but he hasn't crashed nearly as much as Meeke or Paddon.

    The two statements I've bolded are kind of at odds with each other.

    I've failed with wording again. I meant that saying he's crashed constantly was unfair. Then again, I don't recall many of his rallies this year.

    If Citroen are going to get Ogier (probably have signed the deal already-as some people already said in this forum the silly season over now it's just the announcements left), they should let Meeke, Ogier & Breen drive full time, and Qassimi share the forth car with Lefebvre or something...but that's assuming the FIA will permit 4 car teams....if it stays 3....the drivers will be in a bit of a pickle.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    I'm not having the Leferbrve in Poland stuff, he was 3min 11sec off the lead after what was his best ever appearance in a WRC car, Meeke after what was a disaster in Finland, where he had no confidence and lost well over a minute with a puncture was 3min 12sec off the lead.
    I'm not using this to support Meeke, rather show that I just don't think SL is anything like quick enough to justify a seat. Not crashing is very little use if you're that slow.

    Lefebvre has had a crash/off of some sort in every WRC rally he's driven this year except for Poland, which was a clean good run. That's pretty constant crashing I'd say.
