    It now looks certain that Kris Meeke has been the scape goat in all this. To me it now seems 100% that the C3 has some serious problems and the drivers are just trying their best to drive it quick but make mistakes as it seems to be a very unforgiving car. Just makes you think, how the hell did Kris win in Mexico with it?

    Who was the main developer of the car? I still think all three (driver, car, team managment) are very much connected and to blame. Although i must admit, i`m not blaming Meeke so much anymore.

    Meeke was the main developer. So he musk take some of the blame here. At the same time Citöen should have brought in someone else to have a second and third opinion. The whole team is to blame and Matton most of all. Its just a disaster how things are. Mikkelsen coming in as the "rescue" is not giving results and his interview before the rally is just embarassing looking at his times so far.

    They brought Mikkelsen in to get a second opinion, probably at least 6 months late. Seems like that opened up some changes, question is off course if such drastic changes require whole lot of other adjustments to work or if they wont help.

    Whole testing was on dry, so not that much surprise they don't have good setup for wet with the "new" car.
    Specially considering they didn't have good setup for both Monte and Sweden. One should rather wonder why/if Breen and Lefevbre don't have good setup even with the old parts. Didn't they test original version of the car in wet/slippery condition?

    Btw. I still don't see how crashing on Friday in 3 rallies in a row is a good approach.
    a) very low test km in a rally
    b) repair bill

    You don't know what Meeke reported in testing and how Citroen responded. I suspect a certain amount of engineering arrogance may have gone down along the way.
    Kris Meeke on Fire -VW so terrified they quit!

    Youre right. But we cant blame everything on the engineers and boss. And if I remember right, Meeke was really positive in every interview when asked about the 2017 car.
