WRC » Citroen names new team principal

@Jeff: I think Quesnel was more pro-Ogier than pro-Loeb - he was the one who "raised" Ogier in Citroen since him JWRC times. The problem was with Loeb being too valuable for Citroen (as far as I know he is a no 1 favourite sportsman in France which means he is far too important for the marketing to be ditched for Seb 2.0). The fact Quesnel will be ditched from Citroen was clear after Loeb went straight to the big bosses of Citroen for a new contract which ensured him no 1 position in a team and not joint no 1s as it was in 2011 season. From my personal opinion, Quesnel did not handle the whole situation very well even though he was saying there is no problem for the whole season. Also, he backed the wrong driver, even though that driver was more important for the future of Citroen Racing than Loeb. Unfortunately for Quesnel, Loeb is more important overall for Citroen.

WRC » Loeb: I want to avoid doing a Schumacher

Dafydd, yes they can be faster on some stages, even on sorme rallies but it isn't enough. We can see it for last 8 years (if I count also this season). Loeb always destroys them on tarmac anyway. I would love to see him to win 10 titles, yes I am his fan because he is something special. I think Mini needs few years to get to the Citroen/Ford level (if they ever manage it) and with VW - I doubt he will sign with the team which doesn't even have a car. And also - I doubt the car will be a winner from their first season and Loeb is not young enough to wait. Plus there is that thing with 2012 break which is precisely something Loeb wants to avoid according this article. So the only remaining team is Ford and I read somewhere that JML and Mikko signing for the next season(s) is only a formality.. So it's either Citroen or Le Mans/other circuit racing for him next season.

WRC » Greek tragedy

I really don't understand why those comments have been edited but okay, there is nothing I can do about it.. Yes, I was reading many articles about it and the whole thing is not very clear and there are many questions about it: Why were those barriers removed before the 2nd pass? Who requested the removing? Did Citroen and Ford drivers know about it before entering the stage? Etc., etc. Also I read that in official FIA roadbook there was nothing about "correct" passing through that roundabout part of the stage so the question is why Ford has something different in their roadbook.
