    Nah, i’m saying Huttunen.. he’s quite chunky too and the guy in the pic has darker hair than Tidemand too.

    Besides I don’t think Skoda would go back to Tidemand when they could stick with Kopecky.

    Oliver has signed a three year deal with Skoda from what I have read elsewhere and Craig Breen has been offered a big cheque to drive for them aswell so thats my offering....

    My guess:

    If Toyota can pay enough to get through the contract and pay Ogier, then it happens. No smoke without fire, they are taking.

    If that happens, Citroen leave right now.

    The only way they can keep Ogier is by committing more budget to R&D and a third car. Seb wants the big wage and the full support. So now discussions are happening to secure the funds. Ogier using a Toyota offer as bait.

    Problem is, it couldn't come at a worse time within PSA politically. Bad move, a big risk.

    If Citroen leave: Ogier, Evans, Rovanpera, Katsuta at Toyota

    If Citroen stay: Same Citroen lineup, but with a third car Ostberg/Camilli, then Evans, Meeke, Rovanpera, Katsuta at Toyota.

    Interesting, a firm rumoured to exit (or reorganize to customer operations), with an excellent car, many clients wants to pay a big salary. Well. ok, development driver then. Probably similar deal from Hyundai also on the table, with a possibility of some WRC outings.

    Oliver sure, but I find it a bit hard to believe they will be (very) interested in Breen. Then again it depends what you define as "big" cheque I guess.

    As to their stay, it would make sense if they decided to go for the 2022 hybrid rules, starting development mid next year would fit.

    Pretty sure Breen will stick with Hyundai (R5) and wait his chance back in WRC with them when Loeb/Sordo retire.

    Here's what's confirmed: Neuville and Loeb will continue at Hyundai, as well as Ogier and Lappi at Citroen. Everything else is in the open

    Rumors:
    - Tänak to continue at Toyota
    - Rovanperä to go to Toyota (or M-Sport)
    - Sordo to go to Toyota

    What's your guess?

    Considering the possible Ogier-Evans-Rovanperä lineup, they would all be Red Bull athletes already...
