I almost got my prediction right with Neuville winning! Shame another small mistake cost him and Hyundai big, but his first win this year is definitely coming, wouldn't be surprised at all if it was Mexico.Who would have thought last year that we would have m-sport leading the points and a Toyota leading the driver's title?!
"If In Doubt, Flat Out"
A little something about the Citroëns:http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/128098/what-troubling-meeke-and-citroenAnd yeah. Breens final interview after the power stage pretty much summed it up as "we have to fix this". Edit: Just watched the likenäs 2 onboards for Meeke, and that car is not happy at all. Kris sounds downright scared at times.
Strange. I wouldn't have been surprised if any of the other teams had those handling problems, given that the cars are new. But Citroen took the last year off and could do more testing than Hyundai and M-Sport. And they didn't come back after nearly two decades, like Toyota. So this is puzzling indeed.
I really hope they can fix this. Another bad performance in Mexico and they are most likely out of both championships after only three events. That would be very disappointing.

Talking about Mexico, it will be very interesting. The suspension on the Toyota isn't the best as they mentioned themselves several times. Mexico has some seriously tough roads. The altitude might also create some issues for M-Sport. In both rounds there was a Fiesta that lost a cilinder along the way. Engine troubles might be serious this time.Hyundai has a very solid car so I suspect no technical issues for themAnd Citroen hasn't had much luck so far so...
Meeke ran the later part of stage 17 in 'road mode' due to the frustration of how the car was acting, just to get to the end. Its not in his nature to not push. Heck, Citroen could let ME drive a C3 through the stages in road mode, if they want someone not to push, I'll oblige, just for the experience!
If you have everything under control, you're not going fast enough
Personally I think this has all the makings of another Group B disaster.
