    Lefebvre stays positive.

    It's interesting to see how his and the C3's pace matches the others in WRC2
    As i've said before I think he was moved into the World Rally Car too quickly, and he's still young so I hope this move can reboot his career.

    Breens words are promising and im hoping that the car is now sorted out, it will be better for everyone if the competition is even tighter in 2018!


    and maybe they will show more often their rear lights for everyone

    For sure manus must have proper budgets and fight for the titles, still it’s hard to understand why rally fans would prefer having another manu leaving the series than keeping it around, even with short winning chances.

    Despite all the (self inflicted) issues of their ‘17 season and a deep budget cut for ‘18, Citroen will still be there competing and providing us the chance to see a different WRC car on the series, with Meeke and Breen at the wheel, besides making possible Loeb’s return to the sport; for all that we should praise them and hope their efforts to continue in the WRC will succeed.

    I don't think that anyone of us would like them leaving but the other thing is to see the futility of their effort. One simply has to ask why the hell do they do that? Why do they keep humiliating themselves?

    Unless your crystal ball has already revealed you 2018 results, you can’t say they’re humiliating themselves for trying again, even if on a tight budget, as nothing would be more humiliating than pull out after this year flop.

    Citroen tech staff is having the chance to prove they can fix the C3 and certainly they’ll try their best; if they succeed and Meeke manages to adopt a sensible driving (far from Kamikaze mode), wins will happen, probably often than expected.

    In the past few years many expressed here their doubts on MSport ability to be a top WRC team; against most odds they’re now WRC champs. That’s how life is: ups and downs all along the way.

    Story in MN today with Kris Meeke saying he thinks it's wrong that Citroen have dropped Breen for three events. He's pleased to see Loeb join the team but thinks it shouldn't have been at the expense of a full-season drive for Craig.

    Nice to see someone come out and say it like it is. Story up online soon I assume.

    Well if he does another season like this one his drive options will pretty much involve a yellow sign on the roof... he'd fully deserve it too.

    The worst thing is that he doesn't seem to realize just how disastrous his campaign was. When WRC TV asked them to rate their season he gave it a 6/10 "because we showed some speed". Really Meeke? You and Paddon were the only ones to write off a body shell this season and you wrote off TWO. Paddon actually knows his season was shit and gave it negative figures out of 10... and he showed some speed too.

    Meeke will never learn untill he swallows humble pills for real and get his act together.

    How many rallies did Paddon win this year??? Yes Kris may not of had a great year but the car had problems which was expressed through ALL who drove it!!!

    Meeke's season was better than Paddon's, but Paddon had a co-driver change, girlfriend change and the spectator accident none of which was not his fault. Also the car was better suited to other drivers in the team and he crashed from the one rally he was leading. He also suffered a number of technical problems on rallies where he could have been successful. (Sweden, Mexico, Portugal).
