Chris was second choice to Duval who turned the offer of Proton down.thergore it seems like the international carreer of Duval has come to an end. The sad ending for a great talent that was to stuborn to listen at what his employers wanted from him.

Easy..., you'll upset Malcolm Wilson, who masquerades on crash.net as 'still in wrc,you're not and never will be' amongst other things. Although I agree with your comment.

Great to see Atko back, should be in the WRC, but as it's full of pay drivers the IRC is the next best thing for now. Keeps him in the shop window. :D

Shame 'Derek' Duval has called time on his career. Although he crashed alot and was a miserable, moody sod, at least he was there on talent. He should have stayed at Ford after 2004 when he was offered a 4 year contract, but opted to go to Citreon instead for one year to take on Loeb. Crackers ! He must rue the day he made that decision. :p
