Just spotted this on the Autosport site

Kris Meeke dropped for having too many serious accidents.

Sadly it did seem inevitable but it's a horribly worded statement from Citroen.

Can't see Kris getting another drive at his age.

gutted for him but like all sports its a results game, and it would be doing no one any good blaming the car every time...kris drives on the limit and when he finishes, hes invariably near the top every time...problems arise when he doesnt finish.... hope he can make some kind of comeback but maybe the level of consistency and self-control required at the top of wrc is simply not in his ability to attain and he will have to settle for a lesser drive......sad for him and paul but as said above, not entirely unexpected, even on this forum we've hinted at it over the last few years.... Crying or Very sad

I think he’s quick enough to be of interest to ford or Toyota
