    Nope, I dont get this Citroen 2018 line-up decision at all.

    Just having a two-car team is ridiculous if they are serious about trying to win either title.

    Dropping Breen for a couple of rounds to bring in Loeb makes no sense either. Smacks of desperation or a PR stunt as Simmi said.

    Also still no info on the driver of the PH-run C3 ... can this be the effective 3rd car ? I dont see it.

    I see another last place for Citroen in 2018 and a sad exit.

    I think that PH_C3WRC is event by event rental car so we will only know for 1 event in time, sometimes not before entries are out.

    Kind of like that teams maybe keep also other info for that "AutoShow" presentation than just their liveries.

    It really annoys me if they can't get Breen in the PH Sport car for those 3 events that Loeb will do. Surely that has to be possible, and then they can sell the seat to the highest bidder on the other 10 rounds.

    As for that article above about the C3 becoming more compliant, it's just a Citroen PR puff piece fed to the news outlets to deflect (along with the Loeb return news) from them scaling back on their wrc program and the negativity around the team . They also have a PH Sport seat to sell for 13 rounds, so do you expect a young driver under contract to come out and say the car is still violent and unpredictable? I won't be believing a word of it until we see how Meeke and Breen can do in the first two events (Which went horribly wrong this year). Meeke's words would probably carry more weight than Breens at this stage too, but he's been quiet so far.

    Spot on! For sure it’s better to have Citroen this way than not having it at all; still the need to run Loeb on Breen’s car is beyond comprehension. Loeb is a sponsor magnet; if they tried a little bit certainly they would found some new sponsors to pay for those 3 extra events. Sadly, like many are saying, it looks they’re preparing to pull out at the end of 2018; we can only hope that Loeb's appearances and a first class Meeke can help them to continue after next season...fingers (and toes) crossed!

    Apparently, Opel/VX buy is becoming a nightmare…https://www.theglobeandmail.com/repo...ticle37123508/

    Btw, despite all the dark clouds over Citroen WRC long term future, I believe they’ll continue to improve the car and eventually fix it during next weeks.

    Is it possible that Citroen have year to year strict budget. And when Meeke destroys cars on many occasions they spend more than provided so they would cut a lot for 2018...

    IMHO There is no sense in any half-arsed effort because that is simply bound to fail. You either go for it and give it what it needs or you don't do it at all.

    Lefebvre stays positive.

    It's interesting to see how his and the C3's pace matches the others in WRC2

    As i've said before I think he was moved into the World Rally Car too quickly, and he's still young so I hope this move can reboot his career.
