They already have the WRC cars, and have invested in upgrades, so they might as well run them for their final eligible season in 2021.
And with the driver deals they shouldnt make a loss, even if...
With prices down from a rumoured €800,000 to €500,000, but with likely high running costs and poorer reliability. I dont expect many takers.
And sadly Extreme-E is already pulling in the rich kids...
WRC1 seems more of a vanity project now for M-Sport. They cant compete with the two factory teams without Ford as a full manufacturer team, or afford a top driver in this economic climate.
'Malcolm Wilson is hopeful that the upgrade which is slated to arrive at the fourth round will move the team forwards once more.
“This is the biggest change we’ve made to the engine...
I thought the engine upgrade was here, especially with Suninen's pace.
2021 is here, what are they waiting for when its just upgrades not a completely new engine ?
The way people have 're-connected' with the countryside (forests) during lockdown worries me for rallyings UK future.
I can see authorities stopping them as they prefer people over cars for...
Yep its gone now too.
The search for alternatives is on for later in the year.

Ogier The Monte Maestro. Awesome again.

Solid all rally by Evans. All he could do but never pushed Ogier.

Very good job considering the late co-driver change though.

Neuville slower in the end !

Honest from Greensmith, no excuses or BS. He can and must do better.

Not seeing the WRC cars on the snowy section again. Pity.

Excellent drive here by Fourmaux, showing again he's a fine prospect. Cant wait to see him in the M-Sport WRC car.

Classic Monte in one stage. Great.

Right, so getting this on the car instead of Crown Oil so as not to clash with Castrol.

Re sponsorship - you may also now notice 'Rockdoor' on the Fiesta WRC for 2021.
Rockdoor were a sponsor on Greensmith's Fiesta R5 a few years ago, so he may have brought them as a sponsor to...

My interpretation is that this is to enable Greensmith to do the full season more cheaply by only paying for the drive and for not sponsorship as well.
Castrol has had a very long-term deal with...

-3 to -4 degrees forecast tonight. All that rain in the area today will freeze on the roads, plus light snow on top. Should be exciting.

Ogier spin on puncture at 4.30 in:

The three hour breaks between loops could surely have been reduced and they wouldnt need these super-early starts ?
There's no corporate people at the SP so why still 3 hours ?
For me the fact you can hear the co-driver means listening to two co-commentators talking as well makes it ALL sound unclear and irritating.
Pure sound is great and you get split-times and other...

Now we wait and see if the snow comes overnight to cover the 3 stages we tackle tomorrow - I have my fingers crossed !
