    I expect they understand the problem now and can just manage it.

    a complete revamp of front and rear suspension tested in Mexico pet, not homologated until argentina according to autosport.com

    Hope for the best, nice to see Citroen not last at the champ. table. Just a few days ago they said they would fit improvements for the C3 in Corsica.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    The C3 has steadily improved since the new tech director got in. The car was already on the pace in Catalunya gravel leg and Australia. With the next upgrade hopefully it’ll be definitely fixed. Citroen should now start looking on their 2019 driver’s line up; they’ll need a more reliable 1st driver to have a chance to fight for the manus title.

    I have a feeling they will do well in Corsica. Loeb is also great on tarmac. Maybe he will surprise us again.

    Lol, "Arab Shitroen". Thankfully they have belatedly improved the c3, and maybe they can keep improving further...

    Anyway, before trying to find a better 1st driver, the "Arab Shitroen' team should think about getting a 3rd driver for the upcoming events. Breen in the car for Corsica would've been a start but oh well, he misses his favourite event and the teams home event. They could at least get on the phone to Ostberg's daddy, for extra budget to run him in Argentina/Portugal/Sardinia where he could pick up steady pts from road position alone. And with Loeb enjoying Mexico, maybe he will want to do another round or two himself if he can fit in events with his rallycross schedule. That would be brilliant

    What Breen needs to do is to find other team where he will be appreciated enough to drive full season. It's like in some companies where lazy and ass kissing people are rewarded and those who actually work good and hard pull the short stick.
