    It looks more and more that the disasterous performance in Estonia and Finland was about improper/not enough preparations for the two events. The damage was done however.

    We didnt write-off the new Fiesta after the first couple of events so prospective buyers wont have either.

    Well, they didn`t but those who wanted to buy one at the given moment, probably opted for a proven car...

    I dont think anyone would buy any brand new, just released, R5 if they wanted a totally proven car.

    Look at the latest such as the i20 R5, C3 R5 & Polo R5 - which of them was a proven winner out of the box ?

    Most need a while to shakedown all the faults and gremlins and to find the best set-ups...

    Fabia EVO was fast and reliable straight out of box...

    Because it´s looks very much same than before you tend to forget that has different homologation numbers than before.

    Pretty sure that because of Fiesta Mk2 problems, others have gained some orders.

    It's a fact some did and it's a fact some others postponed the order for later.

    I'm sure this is not unique to the Fiesta Mk2. All buyers evaluate their options and will have done the same with any previous R5.

    The exception which proves the rule ...

    Plus Skoda had nothing else to concentrate on, unlike M-Sport who were still developing their WRC car while creating a new R5.
