    Mads has sold at least one of the Fiesta R5s in Adapta to Sweden, so I guess Mads will get a very good price on a C3 R5 or two.
    Important to get as much training as possible in a car as close as possible to the WRCar he is to try to get podiums with.
    This is of course also in the interest of PSA Sport.

    “The budget for this year is closed,” he said, “we have to live with that and do as well as we can."

    That doesn't sound promising to me.

    That only means that they won't extend the budget, not that they don't have any. I reckon only Hyundai and Toyota would be capable of raising more money midseason.

    Though I have to agree that Citroen not providing three cars on the majority of events is less than promising. They have virtually no chance of winning the manufacturer's.

    It's open to interpretation.

    “When you look at what Kris did when he won in Finland with the DS3 [in 2016] this was incredible, his speed was so robust and he has such a capacity for speed – we all know just how quick is Kris Meeke and we know it’s possible to win consistently with him.”
    The first 3/4 of the quote is totally right, the last part I really wonder how he got that.

    That's only natural after such a disastrous season. The thing is that he won't be able to lift the team's spirit for long unless they show results on a more regular basis.
