    Learnt a lot from an independent engineering company using a spec component from a third party. haha
    YES. Pure P.R. BS...
    Tho I understand that "Ford Europe" could be pushing electric and hybrid because of the EU and street cars, but its interesting to see this shift about motorsport.... HOWEVER ford has been linked to F1 for 2026... So, I dont understand anything anymore haha

    It's good that they say that the spectacle created by ICE, ie. the noise, is important to connecting to their customers ie. motorsport fans.

    Toyota boss Toyoda and JM Latvala have also said about keeping ICE and changing the fuel to suit instead.

    The idea of full-electric rally cars seems to have been consigned to the dustbin.

    Of course one can, but Ford not being all that involved in M-Sports day to day running and the fact that we are talking about a spec component which is in terms of packaging at least not really comparable to anything we see on the road, makes me think that there is very little to be learned by the Ford roadcar side.

    Wasn't this the same account that tweeted that Martin Järveoja will co-drive for Gregor Jeets next season? I heard from multiple accounts that is indeed true, one of them being oh so specific about the details surrounding the matter.
