Citroen have officially confirmed the whispers that Kris Meeke, with Paul Nagle as co-driver, will be one of the Citroen DS3 works drivers in the WRC for 2014 alongside Mads Ostberg. Looks like Robert Kubica and Mikko Hirvonen for M-Sport.

I agree, Mark. He's got an excellent opportunity ahead of him. Let's hope he makes the most of it for himself and the team and not the most of work for the bodyshop!!  Laughing

Money was the biggest reason for Neuville's move - he was not on a salary with MSport. Hirvonen has had his best results behind the wheel of a Ford and should rack up a few points leaving Kubica to go for glory (or crash it !). Mikko's experience will also help Elfyn Evans when he is in the third car (Nasser is only doing about 5-6 rallies with Elfyn doing the rest).
Hope Kris does well in the DS3 WRC although it does not seem to be the easiest car to use - unless you are Sebastien Loeb  lol!
