@Jeff: I think Quesnel was more pro-Ogier than pro-Loeb - he was the one who "raised" Ogier in Citroen since him JWRC times. The problem was with Loeb being too valuable for Citroen (as far as I know he is a no 1 favourite sportsman in France which means he is far too important for the marketing to be ditched for Seb 2.0). The fact Quesnel will be ditched from Citroen was clear after Loeb went straight to the big bosses of Citroen for a new contract which ensured him no 1 position in a team and not joint no 1s as it was in 2011 season. From my personal opinion, Quesnel did not handle the whole situation very well even though he was saying there is no problem for the whole season. Also, he backed the wrong driver, even though that driver was more important for the future of Citroen Racing than Loeb. Unfortunately for Quesnel, Loeb is more important overall for Citroen.
