    Hyundai looks both faster and more spectacular.

    Paddon going sideways.

    BTW a hint for copypasting twitter links straight to the status instead of the profile - copy the link from the bit where it says when it was posted (eg 15 min ago, 2h ago).

    Or more unstable and lacking grip
    Depends on how you put it. Judging speed from test videos is pretty hard.

    That said "too loose at the rear" and "no grip on the rear" is what Hyundai drivers (esp. Sordo) are most often complaining about, while Ford drivers always complain about turn-in.

    Yeh, and testing could include trying something unsuccesful that makes the car slow for a certain run

    JML '17 Polo vs Paddon '17 i20 - the Polo looks less taily - is this due to JML's driving style, polo's transmission? so looks quicker in places. Looks like the road is more moist for the Polo test and the Polo's tyres are gripping better. Polo changes direction better in places too - steering/ suspension etc.
    Paddon looks to lose microseconds with the taily i20 getting the outside back wheel in deeper gravel and taking longer to get back straight on the line again. Don't think he will be on the top step of the finland podium.
