    I would think Lappi would be close to Ogier in Finland... But if all this behind the scenes talk about the Citroen is true I see both Lappi and Seb struggling in Finland. Unless they announce some big changes, but other teams are also upping their game. Toyotas will dominate...

    it seems they wont have the update package either for Finland, David Evans also mentioned in autosport podcast that the update will be likely in Turkey

    In Sardania Ogier was saying it should be for Finland, but that might have changed.

    Anyway in some way it's better to wait and be sure it's a big improvement. It is over a month of extra time and Finland is just one rally, while at the end of the year there are 3,5 rallies on gravel that might just decide the championship.

    Still based on Sweden speed the car shouldn't be too bad in Finland.

    And what Østberg achieved last year, although I'm not sure how his different driving style helped that.

    That's a complete mess from Citroen. This aero update has been talked about form start of the year, they they miss the date for the rally it should be of most advantage.

    well, dont take it with 100%, its just my guess and Evans wasnt also sure on that podcast, but Lappi didnt test with the new aero in Estonia and Finland tests were also done with the old aero, as you can see it from the vids.

    Maybe theres some other updates besides aero.

    Great to hear honesty like this and not just pr bullshit.

    I suppose if Lappi found a drive elsewhere maybe Citroen would break the contract and let him go. No point continuing if it’s not working for either of them.

    I would quite like to see Lappi in M-Sport, I believe in him more than Suninen.

    I dont think its just Lappi stuggling, Ogier is struggling too, but has managed to cling onto the championship, through skill, luck, and other misforutune. He too know he cant stay around there much longer, unless there is big improvements soon.

    I just remember how Lappi praised the C3 saying it is better than the Yaris. Seemed to be strange at that time and now I guess he regrets it.
