    interesting article and i agree heavily with most of what you say, but I disagree heavily on Mikkelsen. Him being signed by Hyundai, I feel his chances at being at Citroen next year are diminished greatly, and for me, he is the real enigma for next year. If he does well in Spain (which i have no doubt he will), every team will want him for next year. My thoughts are that he’ll either land a drive in Toyota or Hyundai, since Citroen in their announcement made it seem as if they have locked out their options for next year, and it doesn’t include Mikkelsen.

      Citroen are putting all their eggs in the Ogier basket, and (maybe) Loeb… we’ll see. So, with the Hyundai deal it doesn’t look like Mikkelsen will be going there in 2018. That being said, I still think that Mikkelsen would have been the better long-term option. He’s 5 years younger than Ogier and still in the upswing of his career. Ogier, while still the best, will most likely be winding down his career. I don’t think he’s going to stick around as long as Loeb did.

    Why on earth would Toyota want to sig Kris Meeke? Worst driver to ever get a seat

      He can still pull out a rally win from time to time (if he has a good road position) and that’s always an appealing prospect to a manufacturer. Of course, it all depends on how much Tommi Makinen wants to spend on spare parts and repairs… I think that with a change of scenery, Meeke still has something to show us that we haven’t seen yet.

        Yeah he can take 1 win and when crash rest of the season, I think Mäkinen wants to take the manufactures title.
