    Already last year the Fiesta seemed out of pace with Skoda, who has kept bringing updates. Also this year no major M-Sport WRC2 program apart from Greensmith, who seems still like a rookie

    There were also quite many technical problems with Fiestas lately, at least here in CZ.

    Camilli retired Monte and Deutschland because of technical problems, also lost positions in last year's Catalunya. Suninen's power steering broke in Wales.

    Let's not even start with the Fiestas power steering problem. That list will be a way too long.

    Fiesta power steering problems come in my opinion mostly from its rather extreme castor of the front axle. If You remember Fabia S2000 at the beginning also had plenty of issues with the power steering, so had fiesta S2000 or WRC (especially at the beginning of the previous generation). All of these cars had the same huge castor on the front axle. It works like a lever. The bigger the castor the more You lift the car body with the steering, i.e. the bigger castor the higher forces in the steering. I believe that this was one of the reasons why Škoda came with the vertical damper mounted behind the upright with the introduction of the R5.

    Best way for MSport to revamp the current Fiesta R5 (or to help launching the next one) is to give Luky a seat in next year WRC2!

    Good weekend for the C3; Bonato won Mont Blanc and he’s back in the French title race and Tempestini become Romanian champ after winning Cotnari Rally, his first local outing in the new car.

    Yes, Kajto lost nearly two minutes after power steering broke down already on SS4. That dropped him from 4th to 6th position in WRC2.
