After it all setting in, I still find this shocking. Giving up Ogier was stupid. But he and Loeb were like the Fernando and Lewis combo but for the WRC. If Ogier doesn’t go to Ford I will be surprised. I’d love to see him win the Championship next year, breaking Loeb and Citroen’s current streak would be sweet revenge after the way they treated him this year.
I can’t understand why Loeb feels threatened by anybody. 8 championships in a row. 8!!!! That’s one more title than Schumi has in F1 and Loeb has them all in a row. If that is not dominance, nothing is.
Last thought, if VW and Mini don’t try and sign Ogier, they are crazy. Hirvonen may win titles for Citroen when Loeb retires, but Ogier is the man that has the real chance of taking down his former team mate.
