    i posted this in the news thread but seems it was missed

    The Belgian has run a 2018 specification i20 for the last two rounds and Nandan is confident the team has found the durability needed to challenge next year.

    “We made the homologation of the 2018 car in October so Thierry could use this car in Wales,” Nandan explained.

    What are your sources? You also said that Mikkelsen joining Hyundai was "not true".

    I heard (not certain if it's true) that they are developing a new material to use for the suspension arms etc.

    They are "developing" a NEW materieal, ok.

    Yes, probably unobtanium, stronger than steel and lighter than helium, with no friction.
