    Lappi had issues with "someone" on the team. Not any of the drivers, but someone overseeing things...

    Too bad no-one could tell who it was.

    I just hope that no silly stuff like personal relationships would ruin such a promising career. Let's see, moving to Citroen has not gone well sofar.

    Seems that way. In the pre-Monte tests, we saw a really different aero kit, then it disappeared. Perhaps it wasn't effective and they start again?

    Worryingly, I can't see them sticking around after 2020 if the team doesn't turn things around.

    Also wasnt it the case that Lappi was signed to Citroen before they had signed Ogier ? So Lappi may also have thought he could be the Team's no.1.

    But whatever, it too late for him to be crying now. The C3 had well-known problems before he.joined.

    Problem with the c3 is it's fundamentally flawed. After 3 years I don't think that's unfair to say.

    You work hard to improve one area of weakness and it effects something else - they worked so hard on gravel for years that now this season they were totally lost on tarmac in corsica. It's a sorry state of affairs but goes back to Matton's poor management and too many risks made in the design and development of the C3. Since then Citroen have been playing catch up ever since...

    And yet they have most successful rank in titles in world stage. They are in game so long that there's no excuses to make a superb car from beginning. How could M-Sport do it without any serious budget?

    They were the best of a 'OK' bunch. Toyota, Volkswagen are a different level of budget and engineering.
