    Really hoping Citroen can find enough self respect to run 3 cars next year. Ford third car and privateers is the only bit of intrigue left now really.

    Would not surprise me to see Meeke and Breen in a 2 car team for some rounds. The sheikh/Loeb and maybe Lefebrve running in a 3rd car on the least costly events. Lefebrve in the r5 for a lot of wrc2.

    Kalle Rovanperä with TGS Skoda Fabia R5, since the factory team is skipping the event. It's sure weird that we still don't know the third drivers of those factory teams.

    I suppose Citroen and M- Sport are going to make official announcements right before the release of the starters list.

    Well with Citroen I'm pretty sure it will be Meeke (since he's the teamleader), Breen (he did exceptionally well last year with the '16 spec DS3) and Lefebvre (it is supposed to be one of his stronger rounds).

    For M-Sport the third car will be either Camilli or Suninen, probably Camilli because again it is one of his stronger rounds. I mean if Tidemand or someone else was in the mix I guess we would have heard a noise or two by now.

    Elementary dear Watson, but Tidemand already announced his Skoda contract, and with Østberg's announcement of going to WRC2 it seems it cannot be anyone else than those two for M-Sport. For Citroen, we don't know yet if they are running two or three cars from the main team but Meeke and Breen truly seem confirmed, having been testing.
