    WRC future

    If Citröen quit, and the 2017 cars are to expensive for privateers, what is the next formula?

    An R5+ hybrid?

    Maybe thats the resonable economic and sporting formula.

    Hybrid is never an economic formula. That's the most complex and complicated option You can choose.

    I think hybrid is part of the next formula, but how economic it is is a different thing.

    Maybe put R5 as toppclass, or an R5+, i'll bet Tänak will be spectacular in an R5 too.

    Could they make a special hybrid unit that is used by everyone to keep costs as low as possible?
    I think the main thing is to attract as many manufacturers as possible and if they want hybrid as part of the formula, then it’s a must.

    Hybrid is a politically and socially motivated option, not economically in terms of championship cost.

    However the thing is that the manufacturers are willing to pay more for this politically motivated option, which tells You that the money is there. I don't think that in terms of the championship expenses we can talk simply in money figures. The motivations in the marketing activities are not purely financial and so are not the benefits.
