    As for the C3 R5, other than being another ugly Citroen, is it just me or is the opening in the front bumper quite small?
    Not just you!! I've noticed that too!!

    This C3 R5 gives them an excuse to demote Lefebrve for most of the rallies next year. They'll need someone to showcase the car on the world stage after the other poor R5s PSA developed, and the current C3 appearing a dud.

    Agree, but Im not so sure about this regarding decisions of Matton in the past.

    Citroen have quite a few issues - one of whom is Matton; but I bet he keeps his position. His leadership leaves a lot to be desired.

    So don't enter Lefebvre then.

    This tweet here from Matton shows they've effectively ruled themselves out of the fight for Mikkelsen's contract in 2018.

    I know he's pretty much nailed on at Hyundai now but it's still not been announced yet.
