    A point that Colin Clark mentioned on the kitchen table , the driver after Seb Loeb to have the most WRC wins in a Citroen is Kris Meeke , a fact that isn't a fact as Seb Ogier won more rallys in a Citroen than Meeke , but we all need to draw a line under the whole situation and move on , after all there are somethings that happen in life that we don't like however the sun will rise tomorrow again and what will be will be just accept it and move on.

    Colin Clark now supports fake news ………..

    Talking about facts forgotten in a sorry state of affairs, Colin Clark forgot that Ogier won more rallies with a Citroen than Meeke, although Ogier was a rather newbie to the sport at the time.

    Last year with 3 cars Citroen finished Sardinia with 1 destroyed car and 9th place. This year with 2 they finished 5th and 6th all cars ok.

    just when you are stating facts.. here is a few more.

    fact 1, might as well not have been at the rally. zero exposure.

    fact 2 only for mikkelson, latvala, tanak technical failures they would be 8th and 9th.

    fact 3 the car is atleast 0.5s per km off the pace.

    fact 4 as a team, if you are happy with that performance, then you have serious problem.

    Calling an opinion a fact doesn't mean its actually a fact.

    I may be misremembering, but I think Citroen are way closer to the rest of the field in terms of manufacturer points than they were at the same stage last year, despite only running two cars.

    That said, I found their signing Kris Meeke incomprehensible at the time, and I found their leaving WTCC and committing to WRC incomprehensible at the time, and so far they haven't done anything to make me question my initial impressions. But I'm thankful that they are in WRC and apparently staying for at least one more year. I hope they'll be a permanent fixture in the championship; they're the Ferrari of WRC.
