There are literally hundreds of drivers that don’t get the chance to race at top levels simply because they don’t bring the funding. For a team like Citroen that’s shouldn’t be an issue, nor is finding a driver.

Kris has always put himself under too much pressure, but that is also down to management. You have to inspire your drivers and make them feel part of the team, rather than ruling with fear and threats. With a structure like that, it is not surprising that Sébastien Ogier moved on. So, bad management of drivers, this is a Citroen issue.

It’s about the whole team, management comes from the top. Car development is obviously behind and with a difficult car, drivers are more likely to cross limits merely through desperation. Citroen have no one to blame but themselves and will never recover until they take this on board and have a clear out of management.
