    Will be surprised if he works for them in 19.
    yeah, but with who they will replace him?

    i cant see anyone from lower classes except Tidemand but he is tied with Skoda and later on with VW i think

    Both Paddon and Sordo finish their contracts at the end of this year. But the way it looks like now Sordo would probably stay and Paddon is maybe not interesting for Citroen market-wise.

    Maybe they will try to buy Neuville or even Ogier, but that doesn't fit with the "3 year plan until end of 2019" very well.

    Definitely difficult, but they have to find someone. Kris is always driving beyond his limits and these results are inevitable, it's tiresome to say the least.

    It is tiresome and i'm embarassed and frustrated for him.

    But.. he remains the only driver to have won in that car, and I can't see anyone more capable who would want to go there. They could sign Mads permanently, he'd be reliable no doubt but he doesn't have that last bit of speed.

    There is always guys behind for a seat. Loeb, Solberg, Raikkonen, Hanninen, Pontus, Lefebvre, Kopecky, Al-Atiyah even Dakar ones 4 of them are free (sainz, peterhansel...).

    But don't worry. Citroen will probably retire from sport after penultimate round and that's it. Kris already give up. Hope that Breen find new seat, but it will be hard.

    We will see.

    Feel so sorry for him. Fastest guy, but like the other ones, he has to stay on the road.

    Loeb doesn't want to, Pontus is tied to Skoda and the rest are either too old or nowhere near fast enough.

    Talking

    there's also a guy from Barbados following this rally ..lol

    i'm truly disappointed in Kris...i really like the guy but he's just not keeping the car on the road and i do think his future with Citroen is very unsure now....they simply can't go on backing a guy who is fast but will crash out so often...i have no real potential driver solutions in that could be as fast and replace him at this time from the current crop of active WRC drivers
    i feel the same way about Lavala, but for different reasons----he just can't seem to handle the pressure,,,,but again a very likable guy, however, WRC is not about personality

    hopefully Neuville will keep it on the road and make the championship interesting
