    If it's true - it's another bad decisions by Matton. And Citroen with weakest line-up
    would be a proper super team, and a blow for Paddon and Sordo.

    Would be a blow for the sport if that happens, and would start another period of VW-esque domination. If Seb goes to Citroen and Tanak stays at Msport, we'd have a very even spread of quality drivers across all the teams. So that's what I'm hoping for, and hopefully one of Tanak or Seb staying at Msport. Would be cruel if both left and Ford stood back and did nothing about it....

    Nah, not necessarily. Sure it'd be a strong team, strongest one on paper, but things have changed since VW days.

    Same, Ogier to Citroen and Tanak at Msport will make for seemingly balanced teams. Any of the other combinations will leave 1 team too weak which is not good.

    Would that be in the DMack car? With Tanak & Evans in the 'factory' Michelin shod cars?

    A rumor is flying that Abu Dhabi won't agree for Citroen to have Red Bull branding which a prerequisite to get Ogier. So, the rumor is Hyundai will happily jump at the opportunity to get full Red Bull backing + Ogier.

    That is believable - Neuville, Sordo & Mikkelsen are Red Bull athletes; so getting Ogier and full Red Bull branding is not a bad suggestion.

    But for Citroen to let Ogier slip through their fingers again would raise questions?
