The withdrawal of the appeal could mean one thing: the clutch cover was the least serious illegal device found on the DS3: the larger than authorized turbo is fas more serious... and necessarily on purpose, while the clutch cover could be a mistake. Citroen may have agreed with the FIA that Hirvonen's exclusion would be based only on the clutch cover issue, and in exchange Citroen will (i) withdraw its appeal and (ii) adapt a legal turbo in replacement to the illegal one. The PSA group has always been caught bending the rules, or leaving the sport if they can't get taylormade rules to win, shame on them. I can't wait for VW to beat Citroen fair and square in WRC, as Audi did at Le Mans when Peugeot obtained taylormade rules to promote its diesels!
