If all 3 nominated cars finish and the 2 highest placed get the overall Manu points, cant their 3rd highest car be used to go flat-out to try to bag maximum Manu points on the PS ?
This might not...
It's hardly rocket science.
I think something should be done, esp with the PS now scoring Manu points.
There could be all kinds of tactics, not just tyre-saving, at the end of the season when...
Just 12 in total... what a difference compared to the original Fiesta WRC:
In it's five years (2011-2016) there were 25 works Fiesta WRC's and 62 built in total. Yes, 62 !
How about all cars have to carry an emergency super-lightweight space-saver spare wheel for road use only ?
Then no more problems getting back to service and it will be the same for everyone.

On the Dirtfish video summary of RMC, David Evans stated M-Sport cannot afford any more big crashes as they dont have many more WRC chassis' available.
Knowing this situation wont make it any...

If you return under Rally 2 on the last day (to try for PS points), your times on the preceding stages should have to be within a certain percentage of a set figure to stop you tyre saving.

Modern rally drivers are already lucky in having the Rally 2 option to continue.
Year's ago if you broke down or crashed you were out of the rally, period.

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.
24th January 2021, 12:19
Solid all rally by Evans. All he could do but never pushed Ogier.
24th January 2021, 12:17
Very good job considering the late co-driver change though.
24th January 2021, 12:14
Neuville slower in the end !

Honest from Greensmith, no excuses or BS. He can and must do better.
24th January 2021, 11:58
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.
24th January 2021, 11:32
Classic Monte in one stage. Great.
24th January 2021, 11:22
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...
23rd January 2021, 22:52
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...
