    How about Trier? I've been to both Heidelberg and Bernkastel-Kues. Both are nice but very crowded, especially Heidelberg as it attracts many Asian tourists.

    Totally forgot about Trier . By the way, Mads Ostberg confirmed that he drops Germany: http://www.madsostberg.no/Home/PressArticle/1151

    Østberg skips Deutschland after all because of the problems in Rzezow

    Ostberg has come back down to earth with a bump this season. Privateer budget but factory expectations.

    I hope he can push through a get a programme going into next year. He's looking long-term with co-drivers but you have to wonder how long he'll keep it up.

    It's not looking good for Ostberg tbh. There are enough highly rated young drivers coming in that he probably can't get a works drive again, at least not without bringing money. I think he's done with top level WRC and will just appear as a privateer occasionally.

    I thought he prefers his own team to the works teams

    I guess he could get another car (Skoda i.e) if he really wanted to drive.

    Maybe the money is running out... ��
    it's all about driving fast

    I get the impression it is more likely his motivation is running out.
