    First time I've been interested in anything Ken Block is doing.

    It is apparently the jump at 4:09 in the below video that destroyed Veiby's car suspension:

    It is interesting what Kajto said after the finish of the rally:
    Already a few days before the rally I knew that the change of car would be a good decision. We were analyzing plenty of circumstances, including the latest information about VW Polo. Of course I feel sorry for Veiby, because he is a fast driver.
    (...)
    This decision wasn't easy, but it turned out to be right.

    Skoda EVO has taken 1-2 wins in first 2 events, somehow I have feeling that Fiesta Mk8 wont do that but still people are posting way more Fiesta news than Fabia news.

    EWRC site has about 250 different Fiesta chassis and about 250 different Fabia chassis numbers but 90% about news is about Fiesta, WHY ?

    Is the only reason The Look of Fabia, new one looks like old one ?

    I think it may play a role. People treat this new Fiesta as a completely different car. And it looks much more exciting than Fabia.

    Another factor is that Ford has a lot to prove on the R5 market. Can the new Fiesta beat Skoda and Volkswagen?

    Nothing unusual about the jump so I suppose some part was already damaged or again quality control issues with build or components.

    Several Polos completed Sweden without such problems after jumps so in this case it can’t be a design fault.
