    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?
    yes I saw somewhere side to side photos and they were different,but don't remember where I saw it,maybe somebody at twitter.

    The old one is here:

    (Mikkelsen)

    For the new one the best I saw so far is from the vid at 1:39: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFyODMNPZLE

    The pods are bit longer and wider and there is an extra hole lower down a bit Citroen-style, but with cover.

    Nandan saying they still haven't decided ultimately who's driving a whole season and who's not. Also again rumors of Sordo going to rallycross.

    Strange to be saying that while still saying that all the drivers have contracts to do all the rallies, I wouldn't have thought the big bosses would like a manager blatantly saying that they're planning to dishonour contracts. Maybe he's hoping to pressure a driver into leaving, or knows about something else happening in the background that isn't public.

    Watch the movements of he who has blamed the car for his failure to win the WDC title this year.

    I dont know if this was discussed elsewhere, but I just heard that Neuville had a '2018-spec' i20 from Rally GB... hence his superior speed on this event and in Australia.

    Anyone else heard or know more about this ?

    Not true. The aero maybe but rest of the car is the same.
