Seems as if Peugeot is trying to get the last word in their parting of ways with Richard Burns. According to Corrado Provaro, the team chief, Peugeot actually didn’t want Burns to return to the team next season. It’s no secret that Burns didn’t get on well with the team, always complaining about the feel of the 206, and this statement just seems to be a way for Peugeot to one-up Burns and make him look like the jilted lover. Interestingly, if Burns can continue his consistent form, this season will very closely resemble his driver’s championship season of 2001, when he left Subaru immediately following his win.
