Looks like a Fiesta for now! Interesting placing of down strut for the cage as apparantely it is part of the generic safety cell that this new generation of spaceframe cars will all be built around, for now looks like a hinderance to the driver and nav in the event of a shunt! Guess once the Puma doors and panels are added it may make more sense.

It's getting daft. The cars are ugly! I think they should revert to R5s as the top line cars. You would then get more makers taking place, the cars would be less expensive and the competition would be spread-a talented amateur might have a chance of grabbing some headlines like in the old days.

the video froze 12 seconds in, with a dirty big pipe in the middle of the door, wtf? I gave up at this point. Any significant money going into the WRC will depend on the sport becoming greener

So Greensmith and his funding get the final seat at M-Sport in the hybrid Puma for 2022. I'll take Breen, some of Loeb's time and understand the financial imperative of M-Sport's business model necessitating the 3rd seat being filled by someone who brings some dinari with them.

Bet the "contract" you saw Gus signing was saying how much dad was going to have to pay Malcolm! As a No2 driver he's going to have to step up and not just hope to pick up crumbs when the others fall over.
