WRC » Tanak ready to roar in second half


Wow what a breath of Fresh Air !! I know that he will stay with the Team and appreciate Malcolm giving him a 2nd chance and with Ford due back any time soon in an official capacity things are only going to get a whole lot better He is Raring to go, or more like Roaring to go as the Title says, I think he could take a win the way he is driving and with his confidence being sky high Its going to be a race with Mikklessen as to who gets their 1st win 1st

WRC » Citroen drops out of WRC for 2016 to focus on 2017


I would imagine Citroen will develop the car from scratch and put virtually all their resources into the new car and really come out fighting in monte Carlo 2017. Meeke will be offered a Full season so he does all the Rallies as did Ogier in his development of the Polo WRC, and Stephane will have a chance to grow into the car as it develops. Meeke is already knocking on the door of VW in terms of pace but that is mostly him making up the Gap with his speed, with the new car Citroen will hope that his speed will place them in front of VW and that is why he will more than likely Remain. Finally you have to consider that there will be other Top drivers coming out of contract at that time such as Neuville - should they want to consider other Top drivers to bolster their efforts. Sometimes in life you have to take one step back to take 2 steps forward. This just confirms how bad Citroen want to get back to the Top and have been missing their Budget due to WTCC

WRC » Wilson: Tanak really coming of age now


Here is a thought, Imagine if Ford announced their Official Return to the WRC for 2016 and Malcolm could persuade Latvala back to Ford to crate a Super 3 car Ford Team to star along side Tanak and Evans, simular to how VW operate now Imagine Tanak and Latvala taking dominant wins like VW are doing now Evans being the Mikklessen equivalent and learning his trade while setting the odd fastest time and collecting regular podiums. Not so much a dream but a goal for Malcolm

WRC » Meeke vows to eliminate errors


See, this is why I don't go on crash very often anymore. Who wants to read stupid comments from Muppets like general (1st comment made) Most Top Rally drivers would be lucky to break into the Top 20 of a WRC event in a Top line WRC car, the speed and the skill set required is simply that high. Kris is one of the best Rally drivers in the WRC, often out pacing his Team mate Mads Ostberg. Sadly he has an issue with making small mistakes that he cant seem to shake right now. McRae, Latvala, Tanak, Novikov, Gronholm, even Ogier have all had a period of crashes one after the other. Hes not destroying cars, but he is going off and losing precious points and that's not ideal. I am sure he will turn a corner sooner or later. He is a Top WRC driver though.

WRC » Ostberg picks up Mikkelsen's co-driver Floene


Very much a game of musical chairs here. but for the wrong reasons Not sure why Andersson would suddenly desert Ostberg 2 days before a Monte Test for a WRC2 seat though, OK Pontus is a very Good driver, but its a step back not forward, especially when Floene believes Ostberg is a stronger bet than Mikklessen for wins next year. Then Floene does the double shocker and Bails out from the Mikklessen Camp for Ostberg for the reason stated above. It was only 2 years ago that Andreas let his old co-driver go in favour of Floene, now it would seem that Floene was all of a sudden serving his final season with Andreas. Oh well, at least both M-Sport drivers start on Level ground with both a new car and a new co-driver. Interesting stuff.

WRC » Neuville drops to second Hyundai team for Wales Rally GB


Thierry really needs to go back to M-Sport where Malcolm can hopefully salvage his Career and prevent it from getting any worse. I thought it was a mistake when he left M-Sport when he was on the cusp of something Amazing, and sadly I was right, by now he could of been winning Rallies regularly and even fighting Ogier for the Title I am sure he knows this and maybe this is one of the reasons that he is so low on confidence and down in the dumps. Every Driver should only care about one thing and that is giving himself the best chance of success

WRC » Evans delighted with career-best result


Well I know that Citroen are using the final events to look closely at their driver line up for next year as there are a few drivers out of contract at the end of the season so hopefully Meeke will continue to out perform his Team mate with his seat in mind for next year. Evans showed this weekend that he can surprise himself let alone the rest of us. We saw a glimpse of his new found Asphalt form in Germany on the final morning when he beat Latvala and set the fastest opening stage time. I think he could get regular podiums next year and be really strong on just about every surface - which is really important to a Team for points in the Manufacturer Title chase. A Huge Well done to Elfyn. I am sure he is Buzzing after this Result.

WRC » Latvala missing “spark” to fight for victory


I somewhat agree with that comment general, but the only issue is where ?? M-Sport don't have the Budget to pay Latvala a VW type wage Hyundai seemingly doesn't have the warm fuzzy feeling that M-Sport does and Citroen are teetering on the edge of throwing in the towel Toyota would be ideal especially as Tommi in the manager there But the car is still too far away and Latvala is too old to wait for the new car Maybe Latvala would take a severe wage cut and go back to M-Sport But I think he will stay where he has the best chance to fight for Victories

WRC » WRC Promoter thrilled with 2017 revamp


With Manufacturers coming back to the WRC it is looking Good for the future of the WRC. Now the Sport needs more commercial attention and investment. F1 has a lot more hype and Build up before each Race. WRC has none of that. WRC needs to be better promoted at a Higher level and the cars exploited more. Pundits like Damon Hill, Martin Brundle, David Coulthard and Jonny Herbert all make the Sport more interesting and bring more Fame to the Sport. WRC doesn't enjoy the same Awe as F1 and that needs to be worked on
