Matthew 'hapless' Wilson take note. No ridiculous and painfully slow 5 year plans needed here. Ogier was 2008 World Junior Champion. In his first WRC event in a C4 he led in GB. Since then, 18 rallies in a C4 have netted a win and three other podiums. Bang. Hapless has a pathetic best of 4th - 3 years ago in Japan where there were barely any finishers!! Whimper.

In 4 and half seasons and 64 rallies Wilson and comedy partner Martin has scrapped together 3 stage wins (same number as Federico Villagra in 41 rallies!). In one and half seasons Ogier has managed 38. Hapless you are a disgrace - stick to worthwhile charity bike rides, you shouldn't be allowed within 100 miles of WRC roads.

Sordo is average on gravel, makes sense.

Reckon he'll be in the works team full time next year and Sordo in the junior team as he needs to be kept for marketing reasons.

As I predicted right after his win, this was obviously due to happen. As I said then, sadly for Sordo Quesnell is not a man to ****er, he makes these kind of decisions taking a pee and without hesitation

Sordo will drop into the Junior team Full time next year unless Citroen can find another Ogier to try out

Perhaps Malcolm should instead offer to sign Sordo to Lead the Stobart team and at least stop Citroen on Asphalt. I think he deserves his shot at a win before its too late

Also Malcolm needs to know by Finland so Sordo has to Gamble on Stobart or potentially no drive in 2011

Maybe he can drive for BP Ford on Asphalt and Stobart on Gravel

Oh and Chris you need to let it go!

Dafydd, by wanting the fastest drivers in his cars you say "Quesnell is not a man to ****er", by extension, does your continued support of Wilson mean you are?

Good call. We need more people on charge like that.

Don't live up to your potential? Get sent back down to the juniors. Simple as that.

I am sick of talented drivers being forced to drive sub standard cars with little support. Take those who do not show the skill to be a front runner and give their seat to someone else.

Get rid of Wilson, Henning, and Vilagra. Promote PG, Wilks, Prokop (sp?) And give Petter a factory ride.
