    Breen will stand down in Mexico, France and Spain to allow Sébastien Loeb to return in what will be a two-car line-up at most rounds. Team patron Khalid Al Qassimi will start several unspecified events in a third C3.

    Yes, exactly my thought too. A shame for a team with such a pedigree...

    I almost feel sorry for Seb. I mean, nothing left to prove and he'll drive for fun, but I wouldn't want to be associated wth such a team...

    No it's much worse. In 2017 they had a theoretical chance for decent place in manus.

    For 2018 with 2 "real" cars there just isn't any.

    So the only hope in terms of championship is that Meeke will get consistent and the car will be competitive in slippery/changing conditions. Those two together are not exactly likely. Specially since the pressure will be on Meeke as much or even more than in 2017 (since his contract ends after 2018).

    As for Loeb he is playing it extremely safe, entering the 2 rallies C3 won and 3rd one that it led before technical issues.

    I hope they will end this agony and retire next year instead of keeping on surviving the championships rather than trying to win them.
    I prefer less cars but decent involvement.

    Well, no. The more the better. It`should be saveable with some changes on and in the car (and team)+ new cars again in 2020. Lets hope that they can score atleast enough wins and podiums to keep their name and cars running. But like i said, probably pulling the plug.

    Disappointing but predictable from Citroen. Good job from a PR perspective though - as all the headlines are about Loeb's return, not the team downsizing.

    On a personal note I'm happy Loeb is doing Corsica. Will be nice to see him, albeit it will probably swell the crowds quite a bit!

    Laughable that they don't even have the budget to run Loeb alongside Meeke and Breen on a measly 3events, so they have to drop Breen. This WRC return has been flawed the minute they started designing the C3, and it's been mostly bad decisions after bad decisions from the managemen since then.
