    TGR has both now

    Hyundai has TCR + WRC

    MSport has GT3 + rally

    PSA could handle both also.

    Ahh, I don't believe. They are acting like extreme cheapstakes lately so it wouldn't be surprise if they pull out. And right just when new regs apply in WRC.

    Physically yes of course, they have done it before....financially another matter. Develop both a new Hybrid WRC and the Hypercar at the same time...big costs.

    Honestly, it’s hard to guess. Untill last year, all PSA brands were runing major motorsport programs but after Peugeot WRX pull out and in face of Opel limited return (through Corsa eRally Cup) it seems things have changed and no one can be sure if they’ll improve after PSA/FCA fusion.

    On the other hand, Peugeot WEC participation is rumoured to be a venture with Oreca and Rebellion, making one believe it won’t be a full scale PSA investement. Nevertheless, bringing back Abu-Dhabi or getting a new Hybrid tech partner would certainly boost Citroen long-term chances. Fingers crossed.

    Citroen were one of the biggest pushers of this new tech, it was a must for them or they are gone.

    However I suppose if they see little chance of being successful post-Ogier against Toyota and Hyundai, maybe they'll decide the WRC isn't worth it financially regardless...

    Yep, next year C3 upgrades and Lappi’s evolution are probably vital for Citroen future but I mostly fear they can make their long-term plans to depend on new partnerships. DS is in FE alongside a Chinese team (Techeetah) and this WEC program is rumoured to be a joint venture with Oreca (chassis) and Rebellion (runing team), with Peugeot mainly providing the engine/power train. If so, PSA seems to be leaving behind their full in-house programs and it’s hard to see outside partners able to run (and pay) a WRC venture with them. Hope to be wrong.
