    Ha good?
    I think we should note when copypasting machine translated material, there's usually something lost in translation, same with the Sordo/Clark tweets yesterday

    Other than that, I think it would be good for Lefebvre to take a year off in WRC2. If he could win WRC2 in some rallies, it would do good for his confidence. Being the slowest WRC and crashing constantly is taking him nowhere.

    Today Ogier's twitter has him on holiday in New York.

    Seeing that he wanted his future decided early, does this mean his 2018 is already sorted...

    Well imagine the insane risk Matton would be taking by not "keeping" Mikkelsen if he wasn't very sure about getting Ogier. Tanak certainly won't go to Citroen and no other driver consistently faster than Breen/Lefevbre is available. The driver setup they had this year is clearly not good enough for multiple reasons.

    It’s quite simple; WRC radio journos are Brits working for an international media, with a worldwide audience. They tend to forget it and most of the time they act having just British public in mind.

    We are seeing something we haven't seen in years, drivers been sacked in middle of the season and replaced. Interesting but not nice for the drivers of course. But tells that teams are serious about the championship and also that there is one world class driver without a drive.
    My guess is that Mikkelsen was guaranteed a contract to Hyundai 2018, so he decided to play it safe and not repeat what happened to him last year

    OK, so sorting the deal with Citroen can wait... despite saying over and over he wants his future decided early ...

    We'll see who's right.
