    It is about time Citroen does a major redesign, or at least say that the C3, both WRC and R5 lacks what it takes to become a winner.

    No driver till thos day have made it to his liking, setupwise. Then the procect is a flaw, when even Ogier has lost interest.

    Yep. The problem is even by trying for years to widen the cars operating window and improve the rear on gravel (by listening to Meeke's/ Mikkelsen's/ Loeb's/ Breen's/ Ostbergs & now Ogier and Lappi's feedback) they still can't get it perfect. And to make matters worse, by improving the car on gravel to this point (which still isn't perfect), they've totally fallen behind with the car on tarmac, if Corsica is anything to go by. Even Budar admitted by trying to improve the car this year for Ogier on gravel, they've overlooked tarmac performance and it cost them badly in Corsica.

    It seems like the car is just too difficult to properly tame across all surfaces...

    Hopefully the next big upgrades prove us wrong, but I'll be surprised.

    If they want that WDC. they'll have to turn that C3 around for the 6 remaining events, will be tough the toughest championship he (Ogier) ever had to win.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    And if they really really want to win it, then get the budget to run a third car. Not doing that is a disadvantage they have every rally.

    If Östberg's pace in 2018 is anything to judge by, Lappi should be really strong in Finland from that starting position.

    It all depends on how much they've improved the car by then, and if Lappi will adjust to it.
