The Kimi-part - yes, Kulta quotes Quesnell as Autosprint.
The Dani-part - lower Your salaries and attend part of the rallies in Junior-team


Will KImi do 12 rallies in the Junior team and Dani 6 or 7 or 8 :huh:

Off-Topic: show
It seems to me that Citroen has not offered Dani a full season deal, that's why he's not signing I think. I've also heard Becsy speculating that this might be the case why he hasn't accepted a Citroen offer.

If Kimi has full backing from Red Bull he can do all the rallies, the problem is that Dani is not a pay driver and he's not very good on gravel so probably Citroen don't see the point of paying for him to finish behind Loeb, Ogier, Latvala, Hirvo and Solberg on gravel.

So true. The situation with Kimi and Dani does not rely on each other. If kimi has RB`s backing, whole season it is. But Dani drives less; if he does not bring any money with him. And he won´t, so basically he`ll drives on tarmac some rallies..?

I promise I tell you my absolutely crazy theory (I don’t believe it myself :blush: ) if your answer to the next question goes in the right direction (if not, it doesn’t make sense).

Does Kulta say in the first phrase that the possibility of a full season is still open?

Yes. He refers the same interview as Autosprint of Quesnell´s. Aaaaah now I get it...Your theory I mean..but it doesn´t work that way.. Kimi will be driving WRC or F1. Not both.. (or nothing at all) Nice theory anyway :thumbsup:

But Dani is backed by Santander so I don't think he will have problems...
I've heard another theory: if Kimi stays with Citroen, there will be 2 teams like this year and if not, they will have 3 cars in factory team :roll::

Nevertheless, I promised, so here we go.

Citroën will have 4 cars next season, maybe 5, but only maybe. They only count on 4.

  • 2 of those cars are for Seb 1.0 and Seb 2.0. 100% sure.
  • Solberg has admitted he has an offer from Citroën to buy a car not too expensive.
  • Dani doesn’t get a full season.
  • Kimi may get a full season.

Possibilities (supposing Solberg buys that car):
a) Citroën think they will have the 5th car later. That’s why Dani doesn’t get a full season.
b) Kimi and Dani are sharing a car.
c) None of the above

Is he really?

I have read many jokes about Dani being the only motorsportman from Cantabria and being the only one that Banco Santander is not backing. Therefore, I always thought they were not helping him.

PS. Santander is the capital of Cantabria.

But I don't get it, why would Dani have to lower his salary demands if he is backed by Santander? :huh:

And if he is backed by Santander, then Santander can just pay Citroen for the whole season and then Dani will get to drive all rallies? :huh:
