It would make absolute sense, after all he's already employed by the same owners, PSA Peugeot-Citroen, who own both Citroen and Peugeot so I'm sure it's been on the cards for a while.
Now that Sebastien Ogier has proved himself as a worthy replacement his contract can just be switched to Sportscar racing.
Having said that, the man's a genius and I honestly think he could turn his hand to anything with four wheels successfully

Seb is something special, and as previously said he could quite easily turn his hand to anything, his test times in single seaters confirms that he seriously could consider a career in this format of racing. Alas due to his age i think that sadly the chance of an F1 drive has passed him by, the time for that would have around the time that he was offered Bourdrais' seat at Toro rosso (3 or 4 years ago)...

However i think that sportcars car racing would be perfect for him. The schedule of racing is alot less intense than that of rally (really only 5 races plus some testing) to allow him to spend more time with family. Peugoet have commited to Le Mans and the series for at least the next 4 years so guarenteed job. And the chance to finish his very long and incredible career at a French team and then continue on after words as an advisor or even team manager... THIS WILL HAPPEN!
