    Fabia R5 with all jokers and evolutions is still a competitive car, so not a bad place to start checking levels in different areas.

    According to the following article Renault / Alpine are unlikely to develop a Rally2 car. Their chief engineer Yann ParanthoŽn said:

    “Personally, for sure I would like to do a Rally2 car, but to be honest it’s not possible in Alpine Racing as to do a Rally2 car actually we need a lot of budget [allocated to customer racing] as we need to do a lot of test session to be competitive. And to do a car to try and beat Škoda or CitroŽn, I think it’s very, very difficult.
    And we don’t have the staff for this. We are only four or five engineers, actually only two designers, only two mechanics, so we know that we cannot do everything.
    Alpine Racing is focused on Formula 1 and LMDh [World Endurance Championship] and I think Rally3 will be the last car for now.”

    In DirtFish interview Solberg says he wants to do more tarmac rounds cause the car is very good on tarmac.

    Does he/Skoda doubt that it is very good on slow/rough gravel? Might also be that new car is likely not as reliable at first.

    It's a known issue with it overheating, so the slow/hot rounds might not be the best pick untill they sort it out

    Maybe they could get their hands on this the fastest. Also, some drivers like the Evo version less than this one due to different handling, so getting the universally more liked car might be a better first step.
