    yes, i know this Eddie, i was watching WRC then ...and those years are the most impressive ones for me because the cars are quite equal now, and he still showed that he is the best.

    But those 4 years with VW, there was just no competition for them, especially 2014 and 2015, thats what i call dominating.

    But thats past, thats it from me about this topic.

    Because Citroen and Ogier have half an eye on next year now, his final year in the WRC. They know this championship is very nearly over, its sensible to test this aero package as much as possible when they can, as we saw how Ogier/Msport struggled with the rear aero developments last year. Citroen HAVE to get it right for Seb.

    What`s strange? Their test days are limited on a yearly bases and they need to test it on high speed roads for next season. In November-December it would be too late for several reasons, test road availibility, limited time to make changes to the aero if needed etc.

    Hybridization is not enough. At least for Volkswagen. The last great rider of the World Rally Championship left the contest by surprise and with a car under the 2017 regulation already developed as an indirect consequence of the 'dieselgate'. The same scandal that caused the entire VAG strategy to be rethought, including the competition areas of all its brands. Therefore it should not surprise us that François-Xavier Demaison was so categorical when asked by AUTOhebdo.

    In a brief interview granted to the weekly Gallo the head of Volkswagen Motorsport ensures that they are not attracted to the step towards the hybrids intended by the World Rally Championship since 2022, as it is not consistent with the current positioning of the German brand: "The day when there are rallies with electric cars, there we will be ... but there may not be many to run with us. The brand is moving towards the electric and therefore sports programs must follow the same line. Hybrids are not enough. "

    Even so, it is obvious that the combustion engine continues to have an important weight with regard to the customer-racing section, as it demonstrates that the Polo GTI R5 project is still going well. As Demaison explains in the same interview, for the time being the developments are focused on improving its reliability, although they do not rule out a greater evolution in two years.

    As I said a week ago... I'd be worried if I was Lappi just now.
