Just noticed it was mentioned in previous page. Didn't know they use such things.

I wonder if they are testing air flow from the rear diffuser.

Lappi asked about the rumors that Citroen would pull out already at the end of this season. He seems to get completely nervous and says that he hasn't heard anything about that and nobody can know where they work in the next one and a half year. Maybe he accidentally spilled the beans that Citroen quits at the end of 2020?

I thought Citroen were public about the fact they may not be there in 2021? Weren’t they saying they were waiting to see the regs etc?

Yes, they said they don't yet know about 2021 multiple times.
It is also possible they could do part-time 2021 while making new car just like they did in 2016.

Is this the resurgence of Citroen?
They were really good on fast and smooth gravel in Finland.
They are going well in the rough and technical and faster sections in Turkey.
Lappi has recently put in some incredible performances and Ogier is now ready to pounce.
It seems they are gathering their strength and it's great to watch.

Compared with Sardinia they indeed are much stronger here, about same speed as Hyundai, maybe even a bit better.
We'll see how they do on the more slippery gravel in GB specially in first passes which was their weakness last year and earlier this year. But the lost tarmac form is indeed a worry, especially since they were fast on it the last two years.

Is it hard to understand that they are cheap and don't care about WRC anymore. Building a new car would mean another shock for them.

Wouldn't m-sport and citroen be a good combination? Ford cares even less than citroen, malcolm can use all the money he can get, and citroen and msport combined should be able to build a very good car.

They will not get another brand. Ford could get back fully involved after 2021 season when new regs comes to play. A good combination? Maybe yes, maybe not. There is a difference between M-Sport and Citroen. M-Sport (Wilson) have a real passion for this sport (company is build around that), while Citroen don't or they don't show. Maybe they don't have nothing to prove anymore since they have most titles and practically best WRC statistists so far. Of course the world needs them to be in the game, but Linda talks for herself. If them will really go away I hope Peugeot will convice her to step up. They are not done in this kind of sport and since they are aiming in EV technology that could be another step closer to their goals.
