With both Burns and Panizzi leaving it seems to me that it's the rats leaving the sinking ship. I think WRC.com said that Burns got to test the new car and then decided to bail. He probably felt that they should call it the Peugeot "Cochon".
Darn, that only leaves Pugwat with that Gronholm guy. Guess they'll be left in the dust. Er. Not!
P.S. I think Peugeot is spoofing us with the 307 photos. It can't possibly have that much overhang, can it? If I were a team engineer, I'd be a little irritated. Remember what happened to Mitsubishi? They came out with a much inflated car, didn't do well, and given a cash shortage had to take a year off to make the car work.
P.P.S. Of course, Peugeot had a hell of a time making the 206 work when it came out. People were making Fiat jokes for a little while there.
