Original plan was to release car in March 2019, for the moment it's delayed, maybe until autumn 2019.
    Thanks.

    It could really do with coming sooner. Sales of the current car must be hit by the newer R5's and M-Sport relies on sales/parts to fund it's WRC programme...

    10 km/h difference btw Skoda and Ford they say. Time loss for the Ford boys when top speed is held for a period of time.

    Has MSport classed more than on top gear ratio, or is it not allowed?

    Fiesta has two options (two are allowed I think), the other is even shorter. Škoda has engine with more torque and can afford to run longer gears than others. It was the same with S2000.
