Yes we know Meeke can be quick on all surfaces and sometimes can even finish, but Corsica this year didn't particularly stand out compared with results with DS3. Btw. Breen also had about same speed in Finland with C3 as he did with DS3. In the interview between Poland and Finland Lefevbre said that in Poland the car was perfect for him whole weekend and was doing exactly what he wanted.

    If a single driver (Meeke or anyone else) does well in C3 in a single rally while the rest of the team struggles, it does not show the car has changed in any way or that it's consistently good at that surface.

    Up until now nobody openly complained about C3 on tarmac, Loeb is the first one.

    To the last point: I do not believe any car issues "force" a driver to crash 4 times in 3 rallies from first place. Anyway there is an own thread for Meeke:

    I think what Loeb said about the car basically backs up what has been said on here, in low traction conditions the rear is loose and makes the car hard to drive. When the traction is high its very good.
    I have to admit, I'd like to see him have a go at it again...

    Loeb has nothing of value to bring to the sport from a driving perspective... apart from tarnishing his legacy.

    I think if he is careful and picks just the rallies he stands a good chance of winning, ie Monte, Germany, Argentina etc. Then as long as he is well prepared and gets a good road position, he has a chance? And it certainly seems Citroen are using him for some positive PR for a change.

    Tarnish away, would be still interesting to watch and that is ultimately what we want
