    VW will not come back and if, it's one year without development. It wouldn't be competitive.

    It looks like time for Tidemand and Kopecky at Skoda is over. Kopecky already said something like that after Barum, and Skoda is already testing younger drivers.

    Maybe Skoda will pull out because of MEM's Proton and Hyundai's i20.. Or Holzer's Opel Corsa... And newly Citroen C3... I heard some rumours they are in talk of their future of CEO.

    Look right now they have only one competition and that was M-Sport. Sme story in top game with VW. They had only M-Sport and then came Hyundai. VW knows that Hyundai is in development stage and will not be better. As soon Citroen and Toyota join the game, Hyundai gets a lot better they go out and tell is financial reasons and a week later they invest money into Rallycross!!!

    Just saying...

    It'd be very interesting if Citroën picked up Kopecký for a WRC2 title challenge with the C3 R5, and maybe testing duties for the WRC as well, but I can't see any chance of that happening unfortunately.

    Hope Kopecky find any other team he deserves that.
    Maybe VW which will begin tests soon with thier Polo R5.

    I guess it's too late for Kopecky to have a World Rally Car career but I would like to have seen him get some drives in a top-line car.

    He is not world champion material, but I think he could have been like a Czech Sordo.. reliable points scorer on gravel and the odd asphalt win maybe.

    I suppose next year depends on whether Skoda take Veiby and Nordgren or they choose between the two.
