    Given the timing it looks like they want to try the new aero on fast gravel before deciding to homologate it and want to make it in time for Spain.

    Huh, didn't know it was tied to manu nomination.

    That also means Tideman, Paddon and Greemsmith can't do that next year. Not sure MSport or the drivers thought of that when MSport nominated them.
