    The Google translation seems clear enough.

    Maybe someone who knows German can check the article and tell what is actually said?
    It's basically exactly the same speculations we had in the 2018 team topic.

    The only "new" ideas is that Citroen can/want only 1 new driver which means either Ogier or Mikkelsen. And the repeated point that came in the topic here that Latvala would not work well with Ogier in same team.

    But one of their main points (and article title) is that Ogier could stop Mikkelsen's plans to go to Citroen. Personally I don't think Citroen is Mikkelsen's first choice for next season, maybe not even 2nd. Probably the same applies to Ogier.

    -----------------

    For the record:
    I have nothing against Meeke. He is a good driver that certainly still deserves a seat. The only topics I have issues with are:

    1. Based on his results over that last 3 years I really don't get how some people still rank him as one of the main possible title challengers. Is he fast? Sure. Is he stable and/or significantly faster than others? Nope.

    2. If he is to improve his stability he seriously needs some change (team orders?, mental coach?, different co-driver?), saying that crashing 4 times in 3 consecutive rallies in a row is only cars fault will clearly not make Meeke get more stable. (or more wanted by other teams)

    But the first time Matton actually says they could hire a new driver for 2018. Before this we knew only that the three current guys have contracts for 2018 and that's it.

    So they brought in Mikkelsen to make sure what Kris was asking for is actually correct? The article is written in a bizarre way with weird twists. They added some interesting lines between the quotes... these journalists are having a field day with Citroen and I'm eating it all up :/

    So, they're writing off 2017 to prepare for 2018.......... Marvellous....

    Unless I'm much mistaken, they used 2016 to prepare for 2017; so they would hit the ground running. Yet, they turned up in Monte not ready.......

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???
