Citroen Racing, formerly Citroen World Rally Team, announced their driver line up for the newly developed Citroen C3 WRC for the upcoming season.

Craig Breen & Yves Matton
Irishman Craig Breen with co-driver Scott Martin & Frenchmen Stephane Lefebvre and his co-driver Gabin Moreau will be joining the Citroen squad with their already confirmed no.1 driver Kris Meeke and his co-driver Paul Nagle.

Stephane Lefebvre, with his team-mate
Citroen Racing Director, Yves Matton confirmed the news short while ago in social media portals. He said, "We believe in the potential of Craig_Breen & Stephane Lefebvre. They have natural talent, motivation and work ethic to win rallies."

Thierry Neuville
With this announcement, it is still unclear where Thierry Neuville will land in a WRC seat for the upcoming exciting season of more powerful and agile cars. His past performance, ever since his association with Hyundai World Rally Team has raised doubts about his future. However, his lately wins in the current season team, could be justified to retain his seat with Hyundai, or if M-Sport or Toyota is willing to come up with some good proposition for the Belgian national.

Volkswagen are in mood to change their drivers, unless the drivers themselves choose to. Hyundai, M-Sport & Toyota Gazoo Racing are yet to confirm their driver-lineup and is expected soon in the coming few days, or maybe even a few hours from now.

For that all we can do is wait for their official announcements, and also keep an ear out for the possible news-leak which could get loose in advance!
