    New R2 regulations/ rules might happen in 2018 so Hyundai stopped their R2 i20 project based on the old/ current rules earlier this year.

Or the car is just fine and what matters most is the driver in this case?
    Paddon didn't complain, Neuville also, the car wins Spanish Championship.

    Everyone who have money thinks that they can drive anything fast. Sure they blame the car for their bad skills..

    The word I got in from the Portuguese drivers who drove the car is that the car it's very good, but not user friendly like the Fiesta for example. It takes a lot of pratice and testing and a lot of setup to be competitive with the car. Chassis it's close to the WRC one, so it's made for pro, not for reasonable good drivers.

    I confirm that. Car is good but very unfriendly to drivers. Also, Hyundai don’t share anything with costumers. They did the car and turn focus to TCR.

    Duval didn't like it at all when he drove it last year. His times were pretty bad, compared to his pace with the DS3 earlier that year.
    Dilley drove it a couple of times in Belgium, but switched to a fabia now. He also complains about the reliability.

    I never said that drivers who said that have money. And anyway two top drivers paid by Hyundai motorsport to drive the main category are less reliable than a rich boy driving for fun.

    Seems to be working ok in Rally GB so far...? Maybe like some have said it's down to the driver being able to extract the best from it?

    Paddon:
    “Discussion are taking place with the parties involved regarding 2018. We have a pretty clear contract that we’re doing all the rallies in 2018. I am just focusing on the driving.”

    It was announced multiple places that Neuville's car had different rear aero (bumper and sides) than Mikkelsen and Paddon (who again had different front than Sordo which had pre-catalunya one).

    I can't find any very clear pictures, mostly cause that cars are really dirty and there is always a fountain of mud in when pictures are taken from behind.

    Anyone seen it and has some pictures that are clear?
