If he retires at the end of this year, you can be sure Citroen will cut back on the WRC program or even pull out all together as a manufacturer.

Dark days ahead for european manufacturers. So without their golden goose, bet on them dumping the sport. The only thing that prevented citroen WRC program from folding like the peugoet lemans program were they winning all the time. If it's not guaranteed, I'm willing to bet $100 they will at least scale it back.

I dont know why you have all disagreed with the above comment. Maybe thats exactly what Loeb should do, drive for someone else. A pal who doesn't watch the WRC said to me yesterday when I discussed how boring the WRC has got (and for me, I was glued to the full TV programme, now I just skim through it as its so predictable) and he said that Loeb should drive for another team, Citroen obviously have the money and Ford don't therefore Citroen can spend more on getting the car better, stronger and more reliable. Lets see how Loeb prefroms in another car.

The commentor above was correct in saying Citroen will be done when Loeb is done.

As far as the state of WRC iI'd say Loeb is the only thing keeping the sport alive at this point.

I thought people are rather bored to see Loeb winning all the time, how can he keep the sport alive? Liveness is coming with more interest (more manufacturers, more drivers from around the world), not with some guy's domination.

You cant blame Loeb for being the GOAT in the WRC -- It would be good for the sport if he changes manufacturers (like Rossi did) but he may seek different pastures, and good on him he deserves whatever comes his way.
