    For sure Lappi is out of contract at the end of this year.
    Lappi would be nuts to leave Toyota for Citroen (who’d of thought we’d be saying that two years ago).. but it might drive his price up.

    People said that about Tšnak leaving M-Sport and how did that turn out?

    It's not easy for Citroen at the moment, Loeb seems to be done with WRC and they desperately need a winning driver like Ogier or Neuville, but are they any intrested to join now when they have seen how things are going with Citroen? My bet is no, unless the pay check is insane and that's what they aim for.

    Lappi is kinda hit or miss, Citroen might end up with a gold mine - scoring a winner. But it could also be a big miss which would end bot Citroens and Lappis paths in WRC.

    Breen, Ostberg & Tidemand line up seems way too weak for me but maybe Latvala would be the answer? Tanak, Lappi and the 3rd driver (which could be a Tidemand) would make a good line up for Toyota and this way Latvala would get back his #1 in a team.

    May be, but consider a perspective for Lappi to be N1 in a team?!?

    Lappi was trouncing Loeb in CORSICA is a Toyota. That should end the conversation.

    I wonder if Loeb does well in Spain if that will change a few peoples minds about whether Citroen is a worthwhile risk?

    Loeb will not come back... stop with this stupid idea.

    He does not want to commit to such a heavy schedule plus he has nothing to offer anymore, maybe he can win an event or 2 with a full program but he cannot challenge anymore for the championship.

    He has already proven he is the best of all times... he does not need to do anymore at his age.

    Meeke already won there last year but that still doesn't change that it seeems to be the least competitive car overall.
