any test update information?

I was also wondering about this. They made some press news etc and still no info. I wonder what happened...

I thought they also tweeted "this is all we can reveal so far", but it was clearly important for them to claim they were the first to start testing. When Toyota tests in the forests, it's open for everyone. But M-Sport has closed facilities for testing.

If M-Sport should hire a typical "asphalt specialist" for coratia, just to prove that the car has the speed - Who should they ask for a one off?
Who is the 2021 Panizzi?

Sincerely, no one. Although there best option would be Formaux

2017 and 2018 Catalunya winners Meeke and Loeb would be available.

Highly doubt Loeb would drive for them and Meeke would probably ended up costing more to the team xD

Fourmaux allready go.
Sordo is the best non participating in that rally.

Except Sordo has a contract at Hyundai.

Which leaves Mikkelsen who has more recent WRC tarmac win vs Sordo (2015 vs 2013) as well as second place (2017 vs 2016). Though obviously after the i20 WRC tarmac speed it's quite hard to think of him as "Panizzi". Then again nobody says Loeb cant drive on tarmac after similar experience.
Anyway kinda pointless discussion. Fourmaux seems like a decent tarmac driver, so I won't be surprised if he even is ahead of Suninen on some stages. Suninen has some moments on tarmac but can't seem to keep the pace over multiple stages.
