Hirvonen to Citroen, Replacing Ogier

Mikko Hirvonen replaces Sebastien Ogier at Citroen - WRC news - AUTOSPORT.com

WTF, why? Is Mikko giving up winning a WRC title altogether? Loeb won't stand for a intrateam battle....

Its assumed that Ogier will go to Ford...

Loeb will leave WRC before Hirvonen does.

Maybe Ogier wants a leading driver place at VW?

That's what I was thinking. After 8 championship wins Loeb probably wants to do something else so he and Citroensport are probably going to groom Hirvonen as his successor.

Yep:

Sebastien Ogier joins Volkswagen's WRC team - WRC news - AUTOSPORT.com

Latvala at Ford, Loeb/Hirvonen at Citroen, Sordo at Mini, and now Ogier at VW...

Should be a good WRC season comes 2013...

He will probably get time behind the wheel of a Fabia S2000 to not lose competition habits.

Petter Solberg joins Ford for 2012 World Rally Championship - WRC news - AUTOSPORT.com

Solberg to Ford now....it's good to see him back to a factory team. Running your own team, doing sponsorship chore and still driving has to take a toll on him. Hopefully he can just concentrate on driving and hopefully bag a few race wins...
