Excellent news... WRC could do with a boost, even with VW coming in next year. Hopefully they will deviate away from the blue and silver livery though or we are going to have several similar looking cars!

Who will drive though? Given VW have taken about 18 months to develop their car, this seems like a young project!

Brilliant news for other manufacturers and major vote of confidence in WRC.

Will make the drivers market very interesting....wonder if they have a role for Mr Ostberg he absolutely deserves a manufacturers drive.....Kris Meeke would be a great teammate.....lots of car development skills. both young and hungry for success but very experienced at WRC level

Loeb and Citroen are heading to WTCC for 2014 apparently... Makes sense, can see him doing well there.

Ah well, at least it'll let someone else win for a change!

I guess Citroen want to keep hold of Loeb, but they don't have a car to race in endurance. Personally I'd like to see how Loeb fares with a bit of panel-bashing.

I can imagine Sordo will be top of Hyundai's list - guess his contract became fairly null and void when BMW picked up its ball and left.

Good news that another manufacturer is coming in but if the past is anything to go by when one comes in another goes out. I can see either Citroen or Ford leaving by 2014. I hope I'm wrong though.

All we really need now is Toyota to come back and Mitsubishi, would love to say Subaru but can't see what car they could use. The real icing on the cake would be if Audi came back with the A1 but as its VW group i very much doubt it.
