    I notice in the link above that they are not using the electro-hydraulic system generally used on the rally stages. I can't even see the gear paddle behind the steering wheel. Anyone know the reason for this?
    Cost savings?
    Paddle is obviously there in place. I can see two reasons - paddle shifting system was broken and they continued driving with manual shifting or they were testing/checking backup system, as sometimes you need to do it. For sure it was not cost saving, you can see he needed to use clutch as cut-off system is not working without paddle, so for sure it was worse for gearbox internals/clutch than fully functioning paddle.

    That was not a test but codrives for journalists in Ford Performance Drive days. Next day with Pontus paddle shift worked fine again.

    Didn't see the paddle but maybe I didn't pay close enough attention.

    Likely it is like you say.

    Now we got an uncensored test clip of the new Yaris rear wing

    I think the video is edited to pause for a couple of times, I thought my internet was frozen

    Elfyn Evans is set to get back behind the wheel of a rally car this week in a test, having been passed fit following a back injury which has kept him out of WRC competition for over two months
