    Exactly right. Makes me smile when people complain about manufacturers making a car better than the rest. It isn't the fault of VW that Peugeot and Audi aren't quick enough. If you don't understand that then I'm not sure you understand what the point of sport is.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    Spot on. Truth be told I don't think the Polo is significantly faster than the competition this year; it is more reliable though and the PSRXVW operation seems to be much better run (on and off track). Oh, and Johan Kristoffersson might be a robot.

    I still think it's a rather rash decision from Peugeot given how much they have poured into the evolution of the 208 rallycross car. I suspect that there were be at least one Hansen on the grid next year, though I wonder if this season is the last we will see from Loeb.

    I hope GCK get some Renault funding to plug the Peugeot gap.

    Peugeot only came back with full factory support this year. Can't the 208's continue under Team Hansen in 2019, or is it too expensive ?

    Is it possible that PSA pull the plug on Peugeot involvement and focus now on WRC because of Ogier coming? Are they really that cheap so that they can't run two programmes at once?

    No, they have openly stated it's because of the delay in the introduction of electric rallycross.

    We'll be fine as long as Hansen Motorsport is still racing..(I hope)

    And I hope GRE will have a YouTube channel so the non-European fans can watch that..

    At least something has happened, as it has gone from being a GCK Megane, to a Renault Megane, and they have actual Renault branding on the car.

    Actually it makes perfect sense. They’ll launch the new 208 road car earlier next year (probably in Geneve Motor Show) and it’ll include an EV version. With sales starting during 2019 second quarter, the 2020 WRX season would still be a viable timing to promote the new model. Waiting for 2021 seems far less interesting and the lack of a proper number of competitors in the eWRX probably also helped Peugeot pulling out.

    Besides, while eWRX is looking to become a fiasco, the new Le Mans hybrid Hypercar rules (ready in December) are attracting a huge number of manus and its running costs will apparently get way lower than initially expected. Who knows, maybe Peugeot is changing their focus to LM/WEC 2020, starting ASAP a full scale LM Hypercar project. Fingers crossed!
