"Someone could say that B group was the best"

I would never say that. It was fine when there was plenty of money around and you could still buy a homologation special like Lancia Stratos Renault 5 Turbo. What are the options now? DS3? I am looking through the specs and I see "tinted windows", "cruise with speed limiter".... Come on!

"Loeb admitted that he have more fun to drive DS3 rather then C4. Its good direction."

What WRC needs is manufacturers. When WRC spec cars are irrelevant to anything sold to customers there is a big detachment here and rally fan would rather buy a Subaru or EVO then a championship winning Citroen DS3.
If WRC is not selling cars what's the point for manufacturers to get engaged? There are many other ways like F1 or various touring cars championships with much better coverage then WRC.
