    MW had chances to gain better results if money wasn´t his most important goal. Now he could loose all, when Skoda and VW selling the more R5´s...
    The main point is just that the car is not good. A driver like Camilli or Suninen should be good enough to be on pace with any R5. This was proved by Breen, who won rallies with the old Fiesta and even with the Hyundai. Drivers with less experience have won WRC2 with Fabias and Polos (and old Fiestas).

    When a private team or driver decides to buy a new car, they aren't today relying only on marketing talk. They can watch videos and read results, they know what the cars can do. It's not down to magic tricks.

    Too early to write off the new Fiesta R5. Let's see how it develops. The new Fabia R5 is (at this moment) hardly faster than the old one.

    You just say what I mean. Marketing talk is getting results, not bragging at service park.

    Oooppps. Now I leave again.

    On the other hand I had a rather long talk about the Fiesta with an engineer from one of the potential customer and this guy was honestly shocked how bad the car appeared so far. As everyone he expected it to be much better than what it has shown so far. And it was not only about the stage times or the drivers but also about the dreadful appearance in Finland and Estonia where the car looked like it was all just an initial testing.

    Maybe so... M-Sport did put all their efforts into the WRC car for Ogier in the last two years.

    Not surprising if the new R5 is undercooked.

    If you take out the two factory Skodas it seems like Polo is the fastest R5 atm.

    Yes, I also think that the Polo is the fastest R5 now. There is still some work on the reliability though.
