    Time to kick off some rumors again (taken from autosport podcast)

    Makkinen supposedly saying in Finland that his ideal lineup for next year would be Ogier, Neuville, Tanak. Well Toyota could probably afford it, but would say Neuville want to be in a team like that? Also wasn't he supposedly uninterested in Ogier even last year?

    Lappi as a possible lead driver for Citroen (in case Ogier doesn't go there). That's imo an interesting thought. Doesn't look likely, but would be interesting on many levels. Lappi, Breen and Østberg looks like decent team for probably not that much money. Still no "established" tarmac driver (2 good legs on Corsica for Lappi is not enough for me).

    Wouldn't that be the dream line up for every team? TOP-3 drivers currently in WRC.

    Would prefer to see Latvala in Citroen. 1st driver status fits for Latvala.

    Doesn't take a rocket scientist to suggest that line-up does it!

    WRC FANS CAN ENJOY A HOST OF BIG MONEY DISCOUNTS AND EXCITING BENEFITS FOLLOWING THE LAUNCH OF AN EXCLUSIVE MEMBERSHIP SCHEME WITH SPANISH COMPANY NANO NINO.

    The ‘WRC P1’ scheme provides members with a promotional WRC fan card and the opportunity to apply for a pre-paid credit card.

    The scheme has been born following confirmation of a multi-year agreement between WRC Promoter and Nano Nino to become the next official supplier to the FIA World Rally Championship.

    Ownership of both cards, which carry the distinctive WRC logo, offers big savings when purchasing items with selected championship partners and official WRC outlets.

    These include the WRC shop and the WRC+ platform which hosts the highly successful All Live TV programme from every championship round.

    Having heard the Finnish interview, I can assure you it was a dry joke. It was on topic of Latvala’s status in the team and he said the current lineup is so good it could be only made better by replacing the Finns with Ogier and Neuville.

    fyi FX Demaison married Marie-Pierre Rossi (PR Citroen) this week end, with Peter Solberg and Marcus Gronholm as best men... Rallying is definitely a small world.

    When FX was still with Peugeot I asked him what they talked about at dinner time. He replied, "anything but WRC!" (They have been together for a long time)
