WRC » VW commits to WRC until 2019


Should be Good News, and on paper it is. However, what has made VW sign up for another 5 years? Will they get their way with the 'shoot out' which has no place in Rallying. I fear for the formats of WRC events, even less Endurance, and more gimmicks. I hope I'm wrong. What will the 2017 car regs bring? Hybrids? If so, Toyota will likely join, if not then they won't. I can't think of other Manufacturers who might be interested, apart from possibly Opel. All the others seem more interested in the WEC and who can blame them? As for Ford, I really don't know, if it's the US arm that controls the budget, then I won't be holding my breath, it's NASCAR and TUSC were their money is going.

WRC » Matton: Citroen approach 'different' for 2014


Duval?? Surely a backwards step. In terms of talent, there were few better. However, it needs more than talent to succeed. Hard work and discipline are other qualities needed. Something Francois didn’t have. I also don’t think he was managed or advised properly. He should have stayed at M-Sport Ford, and I’m sure he could have been a success under the tutelage of Malcolm. But, he didn’t. His time as a Factory driver has been and gone.

F1 » Kate Walker: The manifesto has landed


The difference between Max and Jean is at least Jean recognised there is a world of Motorsport besides F1. Apart from bringing back a World Championship for Sportscars, he hasn't done a great deal. And his efforts towards the WRC aren't bearing fruit. I think he probably deserves another term. What did David Ward know about non-F1 Motorsport??? Did he even comment on it?

WRC » Hyundai confirms Neuville


Don't confuse the previous MSD/ Hyundai WRC effort with the current programme. A proper Factory effort, fully financed, based in Germany, no expense spared. Thierry can't be blamed for making the move to a full Manufacturer team. He will be well paid, will be the team leader, etc he have been mad to turn it down. The longer Ford stay away from the WRC, the harder it will be for M-Sport. Who now, have the Bentley GT3 programme to focus on.
