    if you pause at 0:07, they have gone back to old frontal air inlet? actually it seems like a mix of old and new one.

    That car has all official WRC stickers in windscreen...

    Both Monte and Sweden may have snowbanks, so maybe they start using "new" aero after those two.

    Maybe? It’s the old front actually. But they tested with the new one for Monte. Maybe because Sweden is colder they don’t need that new larger air inlet?

    They don´t want snow inside "cooler"

    "Rallirinki" also noticed new small aero pieces in front of door mirrors

    Interesting how Hyundai basically copied Toyota's radical mirror design.. Could not be more obvious. Surprised Toyota does not have a patent on such a unique design feature.

    First of all normally it takes around two years before patent application is granted and published which is way too long for motorsport. And then from my experience in automotive R&D the large companies don't pay for most of the patents. They use them as a lever on another patent holders so that in the end they trade using patents without actually paying something. The downside of that is that they tend to patent nearly everything with very vague description...
