Rally Italia Sardinia 2017 WRC

Guess what? Kris crashed out! Wrecked the cage so out for the weekend. Craig had another mechanical issue with the gearbox casing breaking after a compression. Mikkelsen doing ok but nothing spectacular.

Disappointing, but it was inevitable, I cannot remember a works team driver let alone No1 driver averaging a crash per event as Meeke has managed over the first half of the season.

Not even close, he did have a great run of DNFs in 99 but a lot of that was from the Focus reliability

hate to say it being my fellow ulsterman but yeah hes had it coming....some of the damage has been out of his hands but i cant deny he seems unable to keep focus on gaining good points, opting for max attack when a bit of self control was required,  just like colin.....ah well, hopefully he'll get another shout and learn from last couple of years...

Unfortunately, had been brewing for a while. Undoubtedly quick, but the cost to keep the car on the road was becoming unpalatable for Citroen. Shame.

It is sad to see the finger being pointed at Meeke..........when things are not going well..............Think this is a rash decision by Citroen just because of results.........their time would be far better spent testing and sorting new suspensions which will take well into next year to see the benefits .............Meeke not written off in my books ..........................who rtemembers a driver called Colin McCrash ??????????????????
