    I dont ever remember Lukyanuk moaning about any car he's driven. He just drives whatever he's got the best way he can.

    In this case the C3 deal with Saintéloc was pretty late and he is probably just glad to to have the drive. Moaning about the car would look quite ungrateful.

    Østberg is an experienced WRC driver of several cars plus he did help with the C3 WRCar's geometry to good effect. So he has the right to be critical of the R5 car when he thinks it's necessary.

    For sure, but what’s the point of being overcritical in a public way, damaging the C3 image over potencial costumers? After Lukyanuk performance in Azores, should we still believe that the car has some kind of fundamental issue on gravel?

    Anyway, what mostly matters is to have the C3 being properly developed and improved, with the feedback from Ostberg, Lukyanuk and all Citroen Racing national costumers. Fingers crossed.

    But Ostberg's opponents are usually faster than him anyway.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    True but still the ever lasting complaints of Ostberg about his cars have become really annoying.

    Yep, but Ostberg (and the C3) performance in Sweden is a bit hard to judge; in the first loop he was actually fast but all his WRC2 Pro opponents were soon in trouble and there was no need to keep fighting for a pointless RC2 lead: https://www.ewrc-results.com/results...201206&ct=1018

    If the latter stops then so does the former

    I agree with what was said above, if you’re employed by a manufacturer it’s not very professional. Say something bland in public like the car ‘has potential’ and keep the moaning behind closed doors.

    Great, so you'd rather have driver's trotting out meaningless sound-bites, rather than telling the truth about how they feel...

    And when Ostberg is happy with his car he says so too, but no-one mentions that.
