    With Matton in a position of power I fear the worst. Bloke inspires no confidence, just look what he's caused at Citroen before jumping ship.

    As for R5 cars, they just lack spectacle and a wow...

    As far as I remember he said that once pre season, unless I'm mistaken? Tell me any driver in the wrc who still doesn't have an ambition to be a champion, other than Sordo and Loeb who do half...

    Ofcourse Martin would claim it wasn't to do with the R5 business, even if it was.
