    He is not the only one. Östberg today used his own new Fiesta in Norway. Car of Al Rahji is I think also run separately by Simon Jean-Joseph Racing. I know about others going to be used by private teams in this season.

    Ok, I was only refering to WRC rounds and and WRC cars (post 2011) and there I think he will be the first not to have his Fiesta WRC run by M-Sport. Is his team still called Jipocar Racing Team?

    Interesting to see if Østberg will have his run by Adapta/Team Østberg.

    PS: It's Ö in Sweden and Ø in Norway and Denmark .. same sound but differnt letter

    Yes and no... Prokop's team is Jipocar Racing but they are entered in WRC as Czech Ford National Team because they get some support from Ford and Czech ASN. Jipocar is a logistic company of Prokop's father.

    so formally team's name is Czech Ford National Team, but in reality it's Jipocar Racing Team. Only the name has changed?

    It's very common in WRC that entry-name is different from team-name. E.g. the M2 team Armindo Arauju WRC is the entry name but the team running/preparing the car is Motorsport Italia.
