    Well, first you have to get it out of a big lump of melted aluminium that used to be the block & crankcase. Then you have to machine off any melted aluminium that is stuck to it. Then you don't know what temperature it got to & for how long so you have to heat treat it all over again. Finally you have to find some sucker to sell it to becaue after all of that you wouldn't want it in a works car

    Sounds reasonable.

    I guess not being able to figure out what caused the fire is another concern for the team at the moment. It sounds like they're unsure if it might happen again or not.

    We are talking about an in-house replacement and this for sure, for the manuf., doesn`t cost the pricetag of a "dealership". In normal circumstances, probably a weekend of M-Sport cars rallying/racing all over the world would compensate it, but the problem is, that there aren`t many, if any doing that at the moment, nor are many, if any people interested in buying them in the near future. But they have wages to pay, a complex to run and cars to develop etc.
    And when we look at the bigger picture, people aren`t buying much of anything these days, except food and what else is absolutely necessary.

    i wonder if they could reuse the chassis? i would think it's unlikely, but since nothing else was damaged before the fire perhaps?

    The chassis is for the scrapyard for sure. Due to the heat the properties of the steel have likely changed.
