    That would be devastating for Matton. The cherry on top of the mismanagement cake.

    My apologies if I'm mistaken but I remember you saying last year that neuville will definitely be in Citroen

    And my mistake that Ogier was going to M-Sport... 3-4 years too early

    So it seems they are not even close to a deal with Ogier for next year. Mikkelsen is gone now, they have only him... what if they don't hire him? I don't think this gamble is a good idea.

    Honestly, I agree with the other guys that believe Ogier has already signed with Citroen. Ogier is their only chance to become competitive again, so there should be no need for long talks or discussions, like Matton is saying; they just have to sign him and fulfill his requests. Hopefully, thatís what theyíve already done.

    I am one of those who believes Ogier is already signed.
    That said remember we are talking about Matton, the guy that was not interested in Latvala or Mikkelsen after VW quit. We can see how that worked out, first after like 12 crashes in total (Meeke + Lefevbre) and half the season gone they started to change the car.

    I don't believe. They are french, they would claim to 4 winds that allready signed if yes.

    Just a big risk and gamble. Let's wait and see.

    I also believe Ogier is signing with Citroen because that's the only option he has.

    EDIT: Unless Ford as a factory team returns.

    I think the contract with Ogier was made on 4 September. This is because they let Mikkelsen go to Hyundai.

    For me is simple:

    Hyundai contact Mikkelsen and want him
    He talked with CitroŽn and said that have possibility to run on Hyundai
    CitroŽn said: We want try Ogier first, we could have no budget to both
    Mikkelsen accept Hyundai proposal cause he know Hyundai is best team/car and he don't want stay to last time choice as last year

    Now, CitroŽn is still waiting Ogier reply, that is yet waiting Malcolm Wilson last reply.
