    Was there ever such talk? I lived under an impression that the reason was mainly to differentiate more R5 and R4 cars.

    The reason for paddle shifts was mainly forced by manufacturers. FIA is happy with R5 category (despite the price is higher that they wanted).

    "2018 will see the return of the new WRC cars after one year of use and fine-tuning, and the debut of new cars in lower categories, including the new Citroen C3R5 and Hyundai i20R5 and perhaps also the Toyota Yaris R5."

    I thought Citroen already ruled out Monte?

    And we have seen nothing of the Polo, Yaris or new Fiesta yet. I presume they are already all testing but one would expect to have seen something by this stage.

    The closest I've seen to a release date for the new Fiesta is a quote from Motorsport News from Paul Bird, British (formerly World) Superbike team boss and long time M Sport privateer WRC customer, on returning from a two year drug ban earlier this year. He said: “I’ll have an R5, but I’m going to wait for the new shape to come out at the end of 2018. I’ll use the Focus [WRC '07] until then. I can always hire a car.”
