Citroen affirms WRC commitment

Citroen World Rally team principal Yves Matton has confirmed the French firm's continued participation in the World Rally Championship, despite the withdrawal of its PSA stable-mate Peugeot from endurance racing.

Peugeot's sudden departure from racing kick-started speculation about Citroen in the WRC – but Matton gathered his team, currently competing on the Monte Carlo Rally, in Valence today to reassure them about their future.

Matton said: "I see everybody from the team this afternoon to tell them I have confirmation from Mr. [Frederic] Banzet the manager of the Citroen brand that our program continues and we have guarantees to be here in the future." Autosport
