    Remember his crash on Myhinpää (was it 2010?) heard it from distance and looked at the wreck very close, as he was still at the scene.

    The Monaco crash kind of summed it all up

    interesting (or worrying) position for Ogier now. Toyota and Hyundai are closed. M-Sport have always been clear that they don't have the cash to keep him, and Citroen is now cutting costs and after all looks like they don't have the cash to pay him (or meet his expectations).
    So maybe Ogier won't be the biggest salary next year, not sure how his ego will cope...

    And thus it's speculated that he's retiring rallying...I'm currently believing that he gets the budget for M-Sport, now that Tänak's gone and there was some hints of M-Sport getting more factory backing for next year.

    I think he is staying at M-Sport. A lot of interviews, small clips featuring Seb recently. Almost seems like a marketing push to me and not someone who is leaving a team or retiring.

    Mads will not compete in Australia and will use the rest of the year to finalise his plans for 2018. There is more than one alternative, but nothing is decided yet
    -It really means that I have nothing that I want to go public with at this stage. We may go for a similar solution as this year with a privately entered team, or maybe I will have a more “official” status in a team, Mads Østberg says.
