    There are millions in this kind of business. Hundreds of euros worth suit isn't the thing to be cutting costs at. It's kind of unrespectful to wearing old suits of previous drivers...

    I was`t trying to get that silly, but...it`s been done on these un-official occasions (sometimes also on official occasions) and will be done in the future. Some even have time to make fun about it. Like last year, Meeke in Japan TGR promo event was wearing Ferm`s overalls and another example...

    Re Evans - bear in mind he has been in Fiesta's his whole career and a change of car is bound to affect him more than most.

    Also he is never very quick in SD's either so its not worth judging him until the rally starts.

    Please do not proceed estimating anyone’s speed from testing videos.

    Also, in 2018 we had a driver having used Fiestas for all of his WRC career sit into a Yaris...

    We ought to distinguish things here a bit...

    1. a driver on a test vid can "look" aggressive, rugged, carefull, clean etc.

    2. Based on that we can presume he is driving faster or slower, but only the clock tells the truth.

    3. There can be very little relation between all this and the speed on a stage on an actual event.

    ----------

    Talking about speed on an event based on test vid is obviously quite ridiculous. A bit more realistic is talking whether he is driving slow or fast but still it's mostly perception.

    However, talking about how a test drive looks should be absolutely normal and encouraged here.

    So I don't like the recent trend that people who mention 1. get responses with arguments about 3.
