    interestingly they are saying Fiesta Rally1 so they aren´t using PUMA ???
    Eddie must be really happy, for me it´s bit boring if all different models between Rally 1-5 are Fiesta based.
    Thanks Alex. And you cant blame them for sticking with the same model, as it must make things simpler and cheaper.

    Toyota are staying with the (GR) Yaris too, not one of their SUV's.

    good for Eddy, not so much for m-sport I fear. it probably means no more involvement by ford than usual.
    on the other side, a good brand strtegy for m-sport, for marketing and building reasons, probably. altough they have to level up the mkII.

    The decision will have been taken between them.

    And Ford arent likely to have returned to making it a full factory team in any case with the current economic climate...

    Designers at Dovenby Hall are working on a new Ford Fiesta Rally1 scheduled for 2022, and in Krakow the team are engaged with the development of a new Ford Fiesta Rally3 designed to bridge the gap between two- and four-wheel-drive competition in 2021.
    Great to hear MSport is working on the future Fiesta Rally1 (and 3). That probably means no manu will use spaceframe chassis in 2022, which makes sense considering all the other rules changes they have to deal.

    Btw, no idea if this will help MSport but Jim Farley, a former Ford Europe chief and a known petrolhead, will become FMC CEO from October 1: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/08/04/what...im-farley.html

    M-Sport's Malcolm Wilson sits down with DirtFish to talk about how M-Sport came to be and some of the challenges he faced over the years.

    According to this article, M-Sport has been rotating old spare parts on the latest rallies. Suninen was asked whether the team has enough of spare parts for the two final rallies of the season, but he didn't reply anything to the question.

    No suprise.

    I thing someone here already mentioned that they have a new spec engine, but they will not use it untill they have used up all the old engines.
