Loeb would like Ogier at Ford

There are several ways of seeing things, summarizes the Alsatian. About me, it is in the team next year and it turns, as in Portugal, a tight showdown between two of us, it is more difficult to manage for the boss and create tensions Ogier between pro-and pro-Loeb. So if Ford goes, things are clear: we will defend opponents and each brand. But I understand he wanted to stay at Citroen, because it is partly thanks to the brand he could prove his worth. Conversely, if he and I are crushed at the next championship Citroen, Ford could leave the discipline. Citroen And also, once! And there, Ogier has lost everything ... His decision may therefore be important for the future. Malcolm (Wilson, the Ford team boss) have done everything for him and made a good proposal. And there, it will be No. 1 driver for sure.

That would mean that Loeb will stay for at least another year? How many cars will Citroen have? Because they have a lot of potential drivers-Loeb, Sordo, Ogier, P. Solberg, Meeke, Kimi ...

I don´t think it will happen. I think Kimi is just waiting to see what his pace will be on gravel. If he will get much closer to the top guys he will stay in WRC.
I wanted him to come back to F1 but now I think I want him to stay in WRC (if he thinks he can improve further). The media in F1 just makes me sick, like watching a soap opera. The same with some of the F1 forums, "my driver is the best so therefore yours must be the worst" mentality :roll::

And what if he doesn't get close enough qiuck enough? He has the talent, no question. But does he have the time to play from Citroen and Kaj? He can do it now in F1, rally will take time. It is still a business and it might not be just his decision to keep in mind.

Come back to F1 and wipe the smile off Hammies face.

Citroen have said that they have four cars for the first competition onwards... and at the moment they have four factory drivers: seb1, dani, seb2 and kimi. In addition to this they have sold one C4 car to petter (but he isn't a official citroen driver) . Meeke is at the moment on of their testdriver.

Logical would be to give the first four cars to their factory drivers... im assuming they want to keep all their four drivers (if they can) who is currently driving full time. And when they have more cars ready they give to others... Im assuming that even if they earlier have planned to bring meek to wrc it doesn't meen they are giving him fulltime right away.

According to Autosprint, Raikkonen (like Loeb, Sordo, Ogier, Meeke and Sarrazin) will drive the new Citroen DS3 next weeks for the developmente tests of the new car.

Me liking Fred has nadda to do with Kimi coming back and spanking Hammy. Hammy gets Fred apoplectic so for a while I don't see him getting over it. Kimi could care less who he races, sooooo, drive the Newey 7.0 and show up the little prick.

You are a very nice young lady :)

Tweet from Becsywecsy

Ogier is on my mind, he will apparently decide before Finland whether he stays with Citroen or moves to Ford. Red or Blue Seb?
