    I believe the words include the explanation...? "he is looking after working closely with drivers, organisers, FIA and these areas, and make sure that all information is where it is needed". For the WRC?

    I imagine they will have an entirely separate person in charge of R5 stuff, just like Hyundai do?

    I was about to write that it was surprisingly small changes given the announcements, sure the front "wings' are upgraded (to similar design that Citroen and the Catalunya-updated Hyundai has). Then there is the announced air opening for more cooling which is not really that radical either..... and then I noticed the stuff on the wheelarches.

    I mean the opening is normal but the extra wing on top of that..... looks like it's trying to act as a "blown" wing adding the extra air from the wheelarch to increase the speed of the air.

    At this rate in 2-3 years every wrc car will have more mini-wings than F1 cars.... or the rules get changed to banish them like they did in F1.

    These are big changes if you ask me.

    Also, the rear will be updated along with a different wing.

    I'm certain Toyota will be the most evolved car in 2018 in terms of updates/changes.

    Depends on the points You compare. If start of 2017 with start of 2018 I would guess that Citroën will be the most modified car but mostly inside.
