    He didn't need medical clearance. He couldn't compete for 2 weeks but was than allowed to compete again without any test.

Both replaced the old Piech's people in their role. As a result VAG is no longer driven by VW.
    You’re making some confusion. Dieselgate was a new chapter in the private war between Porsche and Piech families to control VW Group (that exists since the 60’s, with VW privatization), but it didn’t change the overall VW centered business. No matter who is chosen to lead, the group flag is always VW.

    Btw, Muller was a VW group guy all his life; previous to the Porsche job, he had been Audi and VW top exec; Potsch is a former VW CEO.

    Seems like Poland is out & Turkey is in...however it looks like the calendar might just stay 13 events, which IMHO is better if you want to keep all the manufacturers involved, besides the fact Croatia would have been another european event...
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Indeed, I'd rather have fewer rallies with more top seats than more rallies with 4-5 top cars. Also, leaving politics aside, Turkey when it was in the WRC previously was different from the other rallies so hopefully it has its own style this time as well.
