    Well, to me it sounded like Tidemand is going to change colors before the end of the season.

    Pontus Tidemand is all set to continue the outstanding cooperation with SKODA Motorsport and begins 2018 behind the wheel of their unbeatable Fabia R5.
    I’m happy and grateful to continue a while longer as a works driver for SKODA
    Pontus and his co-driver Jonas Andersson start their 2018 season together with the Czech team.
    We are working hard on the next step so we will see what happens during the upcoming year, but for now we are fully focused on the winter season.

    but yeah, I may be reading into it...

    He will probably do events in the Polo R5 when it's ready.

    Lol this man has a big problem with how people see him.
    Don't worry Seb we are all aware you are a great driver. Give your ego a break sometimes.
    Problem is that the French don't care about Ogier. They don't like him at all. Loeb is still their god.

    I'm partly French but I don't get that. They are only happy if it's a French driver in a French car. I think that's still the biggest reason Citroen turned down Mikkelsen and are holding on to Lefebvre eventhough he's clearly not delivering.

    Guy Fréquelin should be the real hero for French rallying. Developing a great car while cultivating great local talent is something I don't think any other team has managed to do.

    Where will this new facility be?

    Shame to leave the old traditional premises on the one hand but it was rather small.

    About Lefebvre is very very plausible, but Citroen need more/better scouts, while another French guy, Camilli driving for M-Sport. Malcolm believed in him, while Citroen doesn't, even he is French.
