    KM: "Of course, you’ll have seen the pictures of our C3 WRC after the crash last weekend and the damage didn’t look too pretty. That’s led to a bit of an over-reaction from the wider rallying community, I’d say, because it probably ended up looking more serious than it really was.

    It was my mistake, I know, and we went just that little bit too wide and then into the trees. And any accident where a rally car has an impact with trees has the potential to be serious. But in fact, the ‘scale’ of the crash wasn’t really any more than, say, Sebastien Loeb’s off in Corsica.

    Citroen Racing builds a strong rally car; I know that and I have total faith in the team. And that trust was proven correct in Portugal because the roll cage did exactly what it was supposed to do - dissipate the energy of the impact, and keep Paul and I safe."
    And you would believe that crap. If your bosses would breathe on your neck you would say that too. Marketing man, marketing.

    This is a vulnerable spot for all rallycars (and other chassis based racing cars) in these kind of crashes. The safety of this car has been tested in competition by Meeke himself several times. So try not to see ghosts where there aren`t any..

    Wait wasn't Loeb nearly leading at both rallies he contested in this so called piece of $hit (insert a country you hate) car? Let's be honest. If you worked for me and crashed eleventeen chassis worth a million I would gladly can your ass. I will not wait until the end of the year. You all would seriously keep Meeke on the team if that was your money? I mean he's not destroying suspension or minor impacts. He's DeeFugginStroying chassis. I like Meeke and respect his skill, but he has made way too many mistakes. He needs to rethink his approach and come back for another team, but this might be it.

    why resign him then for 2018 ? It isn't like Meeke was consistent in 2017...

    But thats what happens when you have arabs controlling your team and you camouflage it as a manufacturer... good riddance to those arab billboards with wheels at the end of the season... nobody is going to miss them.

    To give him another chance (which he eventually blew)? And technically he wasn't "resigned".

    Wow, that's a news. Sorry for Meeke, I liked the guy. It was crashing every rally though, so...

    Now what will happen?

    Putting anti-arabs talks apart... Citroen is really a mess of a team lately. They have to put things together. but I also I'm afraid they're not going to stay for a longtime in wrc

    You keep saying this...insulting millions of people who at least have managed to pump some oil out of the ground...

    Unlike oh say Greece which has done a grand total of nothing for roughly 2000 years.

    or you, who is a mere lab-rat?

    dig deep, come up with some new insults.. Look in the mirror if you need some inspiration.
