    Yep, its best luck to Breen and Haynes! Hope they enjoy the wknd at Mortįgua.

    On this one (it was taken 4 days ago), Loeb says he’d enjoy doing a couple of events in the C3, but not a full WRC season. Next year he plans to be in the WRX again, even if Peugeot hasn’t yet confirmed their continuation at the series.

    With Ogier in the team, there’s no more ‘obligation’ to enter Lefebvre in order to have a French driver; maybe he’ll do 3 or 4 events in addition to the R5 program and Breen the remaining 9 or 10 rallys in the 3rd car, with the 4th unit being occasionally shared by Loeb and Al Qassimi…anyway, the fine news is that Meeke will keep a WRC seat next season, something that looked almost impossible a couple of months ago. Good for him, good for WRC!

    With regard to the Meeke/Ogier relationship, I do recall seeing pictures a couple of seasons ago (may have been vt on wrc program) where meeke was having a bit of car trouble, and Ogier was taking a look seeing if he could help out, between stages.

    I don't see that behaviour happening between two drivers that don't get on OK.

    From what I can see there seems to be a healthy respect for each other. And that's all you need.

    It takes all the pressure and limelight off Meeke - even more so if Loeb joins. He can just concentrate on doing the rallies and build back up. Plus he has a perfect benchmark in Ogier.

    Meeke spoke numerous times last season saying he would have no problem working with Ogier at Citroen. Think it was a certain Belgian who is apparently notoriously difficult to work with and get along with for some people, who was the only driver Meeke wasn't keen to have alongside him in the team.

    Yeah but what are the odds Freddy Loix would come out of retirement anyway?
