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


d) they know Kimi will be with RB doing laps next season and all this hazzle is to gain some more sponsorship coming in with Dani or Petter :cool:

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::


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.


Dani is definitely backed by Santander, the Santander logo is on his racesuit and on his cap:

The only question is how much they are actually backing him

I love all this speculation,even if I don't participate...I think there are so many variables connected with this...and I'm not sure what this mysterious Finn wants. I think he wants to stay in rally but....
I just want to see who will be the first to bring the real news here and how we are going to run around... :lol:

(eddie-alike = eddie jordan-like)


Aaaaaah! Now I get it. Sammy, I can not watch Eddie Jordan (only Lobato Image and RTL).

I didn’t mean Webber did that on purpose. I suppose only Webber and maybe the team (if there’s something strange in the telemetry) can know about it. What I find weird is that Berger goes to Mateschitz’s TV to say that.

In other words, you have somebody who’s very close to the team owner, going to the team owner’s TV, where people only say nice things about everything remotely related to the owner, to say one of the drivers of the owner’s team is a dirty guy. That’s telling me there’s something strange going on in RBR, I just don’t know what it is.



like mine and wolfies gut feeling...Kimi is in :zz:
