I understand his situation entirely, but given the circumstances i think Citroen is barking up the wrong tree.
Meeke would be better off being given Khalids DS3 for GB as he is still on the shortlist for 2014

Kubica may not even be in the WRC next season and it is no secret that his heart is somewhere else. Giving Kubica the drive would be like dating a girl who fancies your mate, I cant believe Matton is even considering this as an actual option

Kubica has gone extreemly well this season and has produced not only the speed but also the consistancy, but his heart isnt really in it so that is that surely. Sordo is easily the equal of Kubica so if i were Matton i would be saying better the Devil you know

He is clearly very talented, only the best make it into F1, I also think that he has more potential in Rally than Raikkonen but i cant see him being a works driver yet

I think he will struggle on GB as he does not have the experience, which is why i think Matton is wrong to consider him for 2014 as a works driver and why it is a waste of an opportunity to have him do GB, he could get a top 4 if a few crash out but that goes without saying

Ostberg is easy to gauge as he will be driving on GB, Meeke however is now out of a drive on GB so it will be hard to make a final decision, maybe if Meeke drove on GB, if he crashes again then that makes the decision easier for Matton, I fail to see the wisdom in his decision to have Kubica drive a WRC on GB

I am sure RK has a chance for top 4-5 finish even without others misfortune. He is only a few sec per OS behind the top 5 in a WRC2 car.6th would be good, 5th very good, 4th just to go one better than so far.

@Cobalt

Tricky stages, unless it's dry (highly unlikely) it'll be pretty slippy. Don't expect too much but I have to say he's been impressive this year, lets not forget his arm was almost severed.

Actually it is sometimes more grip in the wet on GB, depends on the stone and mud content and when the road was last graded, when its dry the grip can vary if you wander onto lose stones when your flat out through a corner, but in the wet its a little more level grip and you can use all the road and go faster

I've never done it professionally. I did it on a charity event back in July co-driving for my brothers friend. A full spec Evo 9 (340bhp). Absolutely loved it.

Dafydd's done the RAC I think.
