Between the wrc being a parcel of dung and the wrc2 car still having issues with wheels, you do have to wonder what the hell Citroen have been at for the past few years!

and still Ogier is in with a shout of the championship, incredible competitor. A case of ‘what might have been’ if he had signed for Toyota when he had the chance.

Yea, theres a lot to be said for being clean through the stages and there or thereabouts on pace.

Must say that as much as it would be a shame to lose a team, I do struggle to find sympathy for Citroen, as Budar seems to be an utter p***k.

That's great news for Kris!

Haven't really followed it at all this year as I can't find it on Freeview and can't be bothered trawling the net.

I see Sordo and Lappi late into the last time control obviously incurring a penalty, so Neuville and Ogier both gained a place there. Fair play.
That's great news for Kris!

If you have bt sport it's all live on red button. I watched pretty much all the coverage yesterday and today, really getting my love for wrc back lately!

Www.redbull.tv it's all there.
An awesome result for Tommi and his team. A crucial podium for Kris...

Just catching up now on the highlights.

@svensktoppen it's real easy via the RedBull TV app on the firestick, putting this reply together has taken longer than finding Friday's highlights and pressing play!

There are only daily episodes on RBTV though, no highlight show at the end for the whole event? Too much to sit through the whole weekend's worth of coverage...

Will have a look at 5Spike.

I watched the weekend round-up last night, it was not good coverage.
We were well into the show before they showed any rallying, and they only gave about 30 seconds to what happened on Friday and Saturday. Must have been aimed at people who had already watched the nightly reviews rather than people who were coming to it fresh.

Poor weekend for M-Sport unfortunately. Suninen showed good pace on both Saturday & Sunday but the electrical failure on SS2 killed all hope of a good result. Greensmith never really showed any pace, he’s probably best staying in the R5.

Really can’t see them attracting Tänak for next year.

Cannot warm to Greensmith at all. His "Kalle who" crap at stage end in Monte (I think) this year cemented that!

He's getting good practice in the wrc car, but agree he maybe needs more time in he r5, as difficult as it may be to go back to that level!

WRC2/Pro seems to be his level whereas you can see Kalle is above that. Hopefully Toyota give him a round or two next year.

Kenya, now that could be something special if it's anything like the safari rallies of old :cool:

Great to see NI in there too 👌

Like you say, just rumours until there's an official announcement.

A lot of exciting stuff in on that list. Kenya, New Zealand, and Northern Ireland.
I hope we have Kris Meeke and Craig Breen in full time seats for next year, it will be brilliant to see them on their home event.
