    I for one find it hard to believe these kind of things would happen "just for fun", as Lindström claims. Not even TGR with their massive budget is giving away five-figures (what it must cost) just for someone's entertainment - especially as it wasn't done publicly to maximize the exposure.

    Bottas has driven the Mk2 Fiesta R5 too.

    Maybe he really enjoys rally more than F1 and looks to do more.

    Rally fans please help. Chris Ingram requires funding to continue in the 2019 ERC. He now leads the Championship but missed the ERC Junior prize money by 0.3s !!

    Kankkunen was main reason for that test, TGR also wanted to show FIA "rally-boss" Timo Rautiainen some things, Bottas as a driver was just "Bonus"
    "quattro best 4wd rallycar ever"

    The thing is that Bottas surely is too old for full time switch. At least for any kind of success.

    Never too old... Meeke is not some young chicken either and he's had a few wins to his name.

    Yeez, if anything he would drive 2-3 rallies "for fun" when there is no F1.

    Paddon:
    First runs in the M-Sport Fiesta today and really happy with the feeling I’ve been able to get with the car straight away. Feels like we were never away. Now the day ahead to get some mileage and fine tune. #paddonspack @MSportLtd https://t.co/KRAFlAh1rB
