    Just seen a couple of video's about 'M Sport' and their future. Any insiders out there who are in tune with the current situation? Body language suggests that they won't be playing in 2019, certainly at the level they have been!!

    Anyone knows something about Paddon?

    I’m getting really worried about him.

    No solid news on Paddon at all, Motorsport/Autosport suggesting he will drive in Sweden: https://www.motorsport.com/wrc/news/...ation/4309500/

    Nandan: “After Rally Australia he’s [Paddon] in pole position for the seat. There was talk about us talking to [Elfyn] Evans and [Craig] Breen, but this has not really gone any further.

    “Hayden did everything we asked of him this season, he had a really good year. It’s difficult for Hayden to stay concentrated because of all this stuff in the media about him losing his seat and blah, blah, blah.

    "I understand the media has a job to do, but, honestly, some people are making some things up and they even begin to believe their own stories!"

    Would be nice of Hyundai to confirm the driver splits, the unknowing leads to the very speculation that Nandan critises. Slightly short-sighted there.

    To me that kills off any talk of Breen going their next year. M-Sport for a few rallies or bust?

    Wildest speculation of Silly Season from Jack Benyon, Editor of Motorsport News...

    Citroen, keen to keep Loeb employed by PSA, to use him in WRC2-Pro in a C3 R5 !

    Reasons: the limited programme and only one event out of Europe could suit him AND the PR would boost the sales of that car.

    And he would certainly win the title straight, probably both.

    Not so sure...he has the speed and experience though. Only thing i could think that would motivate him doing rallies in a slower class. Wonder, when a rumour about Toyota`s 4th car with Katsuta and Loeb will surface. Maybe a chassis for WRX, they already have the Hilux and maybe can offer another go in Le Mans also. Enormous publicity.

    Just to spin it further... Loeb, Alonso and Kyle Busch in a car.
