McRae or/and Sainz could move to Citroen next year.
Citroen interested in Ford's duo
McRae and Sainz being considered for 2003
With Citroen planning on running a full program next season and competing in all the rounds of the World Rally Championship gossip in the rally circles has begun already with regards to who the French team might take on for its 2003 driver line-up. Rumours have already suggested that the team is interested in signing Ford's two stars, Colin McRae and Carlos Sainz, and these reports have now been confirmed by Citroen boss Guy Frequelin.
The team is interested in signing big name drivers to launch its first full attack on the championship, and with both McRae and Sainz being former world champions, they don't come any bigger than that. Both drivers' contracts expire at the end of the season leaving them open to rival teams who may wish to secure their services and Frequelin says his team is interested, but they are also looking at a few other drivers.
"Colin and Carlos are drivers with experience who could interest us, but others might be available," Frequelin told rallyXs magazine. "A contract is a contract but when a driver no longer wishes to stay within a team, it's unusual for the team to oblige him to stay because that is counter-productive."
Interesting last paragraph. Is he talking about Carlos or Colin not wanting to stay with Ford??? Maybe both????
