    You have to be concerned that this is the last real year as a proper Manufacturer team. The question to ask is, why aren't they getting a bigger budget?

    2017 must have cast a huge shadow of doubt over the team's management, so surely funding is being carefully administered to avoid throwing money away again.

    That was made even before the real car was presented. And I do think it looks good because it has the fenders as it should be, not does horrible round things they have

    What I find troubling is that they don't even hand a full season to Breen. Just put him in a third car like the Sheikh. A real lack of ambition, the team isn't even allowed to redeem itself. If you wanna get anywhere in the manufacturer's you need a third car to pick up the scraps since the two other drivers need to push and any one of them is preety likely to drop out, especially when your car has a temper like the C3 does.

    It could go either way. If Citroen have a better 2018 perhaps they will commit properly to 2019.

    I am pleased to see Loeb back, but also think it’s wise not to do a full season and spoil his legacy (like for example Schumacher did in F1)

    I am pretty indifferent to Loeb coming back cause at least in Mexico and Spain the road position is going to make him OP so even if he wins there is a weird aftertaste.

    Also, I don't think Schumacher spoilt his legacy. That legacy cannot be spoilt. Neither can Loeb's.

    Interesting fact from Jarno Saari in Twitter:

    "A driver with zero WRC wins has never done full WRC season."
    "quattro best 4wd rallycar ever"

    Eric Camilli 2016? Ott Tšnak 2016 and 2015?

    Ah, understood wrong. He's referring to Breen, having no wins and no full seasons, who should be happy with 10 events. I still disagree. He's never going to learn Mexico or Spain if he doesn't go there. And doing less events than last year.
