    ŠKODA Motorsport boss Michal Hrabánek explains: “We will modify our motorsport strategy for 2019. Based on this, Ole Christian Veiby and Stig Rune Skjaermœn will leave the team. I would like to thank both of them for the contribution they made to our successful 2018 season, I wish them all
    the best for the future. We will officially announce our future plans and 2019 driver line-up during the annual press conference, which will take place later this year.

    Maybe that´s the beginning of a new relationship between Even Management and Citroen .

    Veiby: “A championship podium is within reach and our aim is to try for that. I will be nominated by the team (Citroën Total) in the championship and will be able to score points in both Wales and Spain.”

    It's not a good look to be leaking internal company presentations. But 100% I'd just put that down to youth/naivety. I'm also pretty sure if any of their other contracted works drivers had done the same thing the repercussions would not have been the same. Which makes you think they were possibly looking for a reason to terminate.

    It always did strike me they had too many works drivers this year.

    I agree. Sometimes they do these types of things as part of a 'communications strategy' anyway.

    I expected more from Veiby this year, maybe Skoda did too.

    Sounds like they will go with less drivers next year, maybe Kopecky and Rovanpera in WRC2 and Nordgren to ERC?
