    Hell, as long as we're plugging rally themed Hitler Rants, here's mine from way back in February, when they cancelled that stage in Sweden: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2gcWcyMjjs

Furthermore I can't really see him doing all rounds with 18 hour days and 50+ deg in the car during stages. Bringing him for a few rounds per year for PR, feedback and some teampoints, sure good idea. Bringing him for full year not good PR for either Citroen or Loeb in the long run... that said the signals clearly are out that it's possible.

    Loeb was always clever and wise; if he decides to return we can be sure he’ll be able to win, as there’s no one better than himself to judge how competitive he can still be.

    On the L’Equipe piece, Dominique Heintz, one of Loeb’s mentors and current partner on SL Racing, was pretty realistic about Loeb's personal risk: ”I would tend to think that he leaved rally too earlier and I’ve said to him that a comeback shouldn’t be thought lightly.(...) If he returns to rally and starts winning like before he’ll be a megastar. But if that doesn’t happen it may become very hard for him to cope with it.”

    Like everybody else, I’m pretty excited with the news and truly hoping he’ll be in WRC next year. It’s hard not to think on Lauda’s F1 ’84 epic title and believe Loeb can be equally well succeeded. It’d be great for him; it’d be great for WRC. Fingers crossed!

    I remember it, still one of my favourite Downfall adaptions!

    Problem with Loeb for Citroen is that he hasn't got his Dakar yet compared to WRC where he's done it all. I assume he's going to have another go at Dakar next year...

    The Dakar finishes a week before Monte, the rally is now a week later.

    Right, Dakar ends on saturday 20th and then Monte shakedown is on wednesday 24th with recce in between. Well, doable, but not probably the best way to prepare for a return to the WRC.

    Probably not, who knows, maybe he'll come to Sweden, Argentina, Corsica & Germany (instead of MC). Something similar to what he did back then in 2013.
