The events have precipitated. The launch of Citroën as
official team in the WRC in 2016, leaving the way open for that their drivers be able to
look for the future in other formations. While Kris Meeke and Stéphane Lefebvre will continue to be linked to the brand
French in one way or another according to the rumors, you can’t say the same for the remaining pilot.
Mads Ostberg is close to joining M-Sport, formation with which he competed in
the seasons 2011 and 2013. The preparer of Cumbria and in particular Malcolm
Wilson have been shown to be very interested in acquiring his services.
Malcolm Wilson is an expert ‘fisherman’ drivers ‘ and the
option of having Mads Ostberg in one of their Ford Fiesta RS WRC without paying for or
a hard in terms of signing is a treat too succulent to the
british. While Mads Ostberg has confirmed that there will continue to be a pilot
Citroën in Cumbria almost prepared their facilities to receive him with the
open arms. However, we talk about a pilot who has joined three podiums
throughout the season 2015, in addition to the four that also
reached with the DS3 WRC in 2014.
In the event of the arrival of Mads Ostberg at M-Sport,
the options of the two pilots holders of the equipment are reduced
considerably. Or Ott Tanak nor Elfyn Evans have their future assured
within the british group and the results achieved in the last
third of the season are not too favorable for this purpose. In fact,
according to several british media, including Autosport,
it seems that Malcolm Wilson could be shuffling the possibility to switch to
Tanak and Evans in one of their Fiesta RS WRC, leaving the other unit free to the
eventual arrival of Mads Ostberg.
Malcolm Wilson will make a decision. Until the 18 of
December have time. That day is the deadline to enroll pilots in the
Rally Monte carlo. Taking into account that the first driver must contest a minimum of 10 tests, it is presumable that then let us know if Mads Ostberg
occupies this role, which will happen with Evans and Tanak and even if the training
shall be team ‘B’. This second structure will depend on an agreement with Lorenzo
Bertelli, willing to join as a patron, to close your training
Fuckmatié. Robert Kubica could even have a place in this team ‘B’.
