WRC » Citroen reveals driver line-up for WRC 2014


lol - for aldo2654, Im sorry but what are you smoking there !!!! First off Ford cant Sack M-Sport as Malcolm Wilson is the Team Owner and he is finding and has found funding to run his own Team Secondly where have you been Man ??? Prodrive couldn't hold a candle to M-Sport, both Teams have a car and both teams have lost their Manufacturer financial support for differing reasons, yet only M-Sport could successfully find the funding to compete without the money from the Manufacturer with two or more drivers in the WRC this year Prodrive struggled to even run 1 driver on selected events without Money from Mini, but M-Sport ran a minimum of 5 cars all season long What you have said about M-Sport is the same as someone giving you a free brand new car like a 911 and you saying you would prefer to swap it for a Peugeot 207 instead ! it just makes NO SENSE AT ALL !!!! sorry, but I hope the clouds are starting to part there for you - lol

WRC » Citroen reveals driver line-up for WRC 2014


This is great news for Meeke, Finally he gets to be a proper works drive, im sure he will do really well, also I fully expected Morten Ostberg would do what it takes to get his son in the Team too. I can see Meeke beating Ostberg next year more times than not. Meeke just needs to take it a little easy and make sure he doesnt put it off as much, or at all lol This is great for Mikko too as his return to the M-Sport Qatar WRT will soon be announced and obviously Novikov will also be announced too, maybe there will also be a 2nd driver announcement for the Qatar M-Sport WRT to compliment Al Attiyah. So it looks like everyone is ready for monte and we now have 4 Major Teams, well 5 if you include the two M-Sport teams I wonder if Kubica will run the WRC Car next year or stay with the RRC car until the new R5 comes along ??? Havnt heard anything on th grape vine, oh well, he said he wasnt in any rush to decide anything, guess the Bus left without him - lol !!!!!!

I will be honest, I don't like Kubica. Yes ok he was an F1 Driver, which makes him extremely fast in anything that has a steering wheel, but his constant playing down of the sports appeal to him really does stick in my crawl. Rallying is difficult and drivers have to fight to get chances, look at Meeke for example. This guy acts like he is the Big Cheese Kubica announces that he is in no rush to decide about his future and he will consider the many offers from various teams, well its like he thinks he is Sebastian Loeb or something, well that he Aint !! I think the likes of Elfyn Evans will go much further in the sport given the right chances to grow and improve. Malcolm is the right guy to bring him on too. I think Kubica should stay driving an RRC Car and then later on in the year the all new R5 Car - until he can decide what he wants to do. If he drive a fiesta WRC just hope it is with his own money and not as an official driver

WRC » Evans gets 2014 WRC promotion with M-Sport


This is Fantastic news, only a few months ago Malcolm was joking that maybe if things didn't go well for Elfyn he will have to just go back to working at his Dads (Gwyndaf) garage in Mychynlleth called Evans Motors if memory serves me right. Well Who would of thought that he would rise to the top this quickly, it is all credit to Malcolm though for him to give the seat to Elfyn, he must really see Elfyn as a future Star, not only to upgrade him to a Full WRC for a Full season, but it would seem he is in the 1st Team too, and that's Awesome. I think it is the first time a Welsh man has ever gotten this far in the Sport, his Dad had the occasional works drive on the R.A.C for Ford and then later with Seat in the Cordoba WRC but this is a Full season as a Top seed Works driver. Brilliant !! A very proud moment for Wales and Welsh Rallying community and also for Britain as a Nation, like someone mentioned, we now have Two Brits carrying the Union Jack Flag on their roof vent. Both driver

WRC » Kubica steps up to top level in WRC with M-Sport


No doubt he will get some good results, I don't necessarily agree with Malcolm on Roberts commitment,but he has a natural speed and seems to adapt very easily and quickly. Now Malcom needs to get involved and sort him out a top co driver and quickly I am assuming that Qatar WRT will be Al-Attiyah and Novikov as Kubica should become the Lotos WRT 1 man band run by M-Sport

It all depends on how Mikko will go back in a Fiesta, he could do a Gronholm and Bloom late on, but I think his best years are behind him sadly. He is a brilliant Guy and a pleasure to have in a Team unlike some drivers, and he is very close to Malcolm and M-Sport I think he will have a few more surprises up his sleeve though, he has a few seasons yet where he can win Rallies, he has the knowledge and the speed so all he has to do is get his mojo back and the wins will undoubtedly come Malcolm knows this fact only too well and that's partly why he has welcomed him back with open arms, he said months ago that Mikko is walking around the service park with a long face so if nothing else having him back will revive that happy smile again, Mikko is usually so happy and it will in fact be nice to see him bouncing around again.

Another fact worth considering is the imminent and Official Return of Ford to the WRC. I dont think it will be for the 2014 season but i would guess that an announcment could be made towards the end of next season in preparation for the 2015 season and drivers transfer market so Malcolm has half a chance of securing some Top drivers. Malcolm has lost all of his drivers in the last 2 seasons due to lack of Manufacturer status, only mikko has or is to Return. Hopefully Ford will announce it early enough for Malcolm to secure the signatures that he wants. Malcolm deserves that much after the pressure of the last 2 seasons trying to survive without them.
