Brave, mad, take your pick. I honestly can't understand this deal. Unless he is actually being paid by Al Attiyah/ Qatar as Nasser is a big fan of Thierry.
I'd have thought another year at Citroen alongside Loeb, Hirvonen & Sordo was a much better bet than M-Sport. How often do M-Sport get it wrong??
Confirmed here http://www.m-sport.co.uk/index.php/news/1302-novik...

Maybe Neuville knows something about Citreon that we dont. There is all this talk about the WTCC and its only the fans that talk up Peugeot taking their place in the WRC. Still as a Ford boy (Glutton for punishment?!) im happy biggrin

No,but they were bigging themselves up in Motorsport News saying we will Monte Carlo rally

with the Mini.

Get yourselves a driver first eh Prodrive.

I hear Kris Meeke might be free and quite keen.

I read on British Rally Forum that Mini will not be at the Monte. Such a shame the whole project has been one big cock up as the car has so much potential, especially on tarmac!

Money is currently ruining the sport for the likes of Mini and the possibility of a return of a British driver, in Meeke.

Lets hope someone pulls something from somewhere and sorts it. Would love to see Kris with a drive. Still under contract I believe...
