    @br21 what you are say is common sense,so yes you are right,but the car seems to be very slow compared to other cars,so i thinks this is something.
    Ok. Tell me how many secs/km, please. Eager to hear your expert eyes. Says so much of coming season.

    Considering the Yaris is turning uphill it is impressive how it accelerated out of the hairpin.

    Could some one please notice the difference in body styles between this Yaris test to one shown at the launch?

    At least the Toyota appears to have a very good engine. Should give them a base to work from

    Honestly, I can't see anything wrong on the Yaris suspension, quite the opposite, as the car seems to handle nicely, even on high speed sections. It only looks there still some traction issues on slower corners, probably due to diff set up testing, like br has explained.

    this is the difficult to fix,the slow-medium corners.Remember 1st gen i20,never managed to fix it.
