    I guess just because that’s what’s been lined up/ agreed. Don’t think there is anything in it, especially given he’s going to Toyota.
    It also might go some way to clarifying if he actually is still under contract to Citroen or not.

    Fredrik Gustavsson? He is not employee.

    At first I was a bit surprised about this Meek/Toyota thing, but now the more I think the more it makes sense. One thing is that Tanak and Latvala are consistent now, so it makes sense to have someone who can take some wins, even if he crashes out on some of the events. The other thing is Meek was always hired to be #1 (Mini/Citroen), and he did win, but failed to be #1 (fast and consistent). Now he will not be #1 (=less pressure). I think it could work out.

    Kudos goes to Makinen He saw opportunity and took risks.

    Did I hear something about Meeke offering to drive for free a while back ? Maybe thats the attraction to Toyota, or even if its a pay-by-results contract...

    C. Clark said it at a Kitchen Table not Long ago. People here said that was only valid for this year.

    Yes that's the fella. Thanks for clarification, I know he's professional golfer but I used to play golf with the brother of a pro golfer and he also had a day job so wasn't 100% sure. Certainly gives the impression he is part of the Citroen wrt team.

    He really should not be considered as any kind of accurate information source. He's going to get himself into trouble with a manufacturer or a driver one day with his constant speculative babble.

    And ppl complain and wonder why there is no "real" reporting in WRC, just press-release copying.
    When even "speculation" is supposed to "get you in trouble".
