    In a different world with a few different management decisions made we could be looking ahead to 2020 with Citroen fielding a star studded team comprising Loeb, Ogier & Lappi. 2 rally gods and a Finn who used to be described as faster than god.

    Alpha dogs of these caliber at their prime of their carrier really don't mesh well, it is bound to get toxic very soon as they compete for victory.

    I will miss Citroen, with the new aero kit, the car looks sick. Too bad we won't see it compete on the stages.

    Sorry I spent what I could afford sponsoring Chris Ingram, helping him to continue (and become champion) in ERC.

    We all saw how many drivers did that.
    I say again, the situation is different now with so few seats and so many keen driver's...

    After all a bit surprised that Lappi decided to rent M-Sport car over Citroen. Last year Citroen was in title contender speed and like Lappi himself said there was a lot of progress seen in a pipeline. He might have had a good opportunity to get financially amicable deal with PSA and to get some familiar resources from Citroen continuing the work around the familiar car in PH-Sport environment.

    Well, hopefully we will see many C3 WRC on action with other drivers then, starting from Monte!

    I doubt Lappi is paying for his MSport seat per se, probably on one of Malcolm's 'future earnings deals'

    Would be nice to see some Citroens on the stages this year but there's not been many rumours of such apart from Mads on a handful of events probably.

    Very disappointed not to see Ostberg in C3 WRC. Many thought that last year's R5 campaign was an exception but it seems to become new normal for him Well, better R5 than nothing.

    All cards on Loubet now.
