    I hate to use arguments like this on forums but I’ve heard Suninen being paid from an ”inside source” as well.

    i believe the new r5 will be something similiar
    Thanks. Can you get any confirmation of this from a good source ?

    BTW, why do M-Sport use a new Fiesta ST as the base for their rally car when it is going to be totally stripped and just the shell used ? Does it have to be registered as a Fiesta ST ?

    I believe you already argued about it in this thread, around October and got a credible answer from a person supervising building a Fiesta R5 with international homologation somewhere here. If you don`t remember:

It needs to be based on normal road car as needs to have proper VIN number. And engine is not based on ST road car, actually engine for current Fiesta is based on some 1,8 engine from Mondeo I think. It just needs to be engine from the group. Engine for new Fiesta will be based on 2,0l from US market.
    Says also, what`s going to be used in the new car.

    Yes, I remember it well and dont doubt it.

    I just wondered where the info can be found 'officially' since I cant find anything but ST Ecoboost references for the R5.on every website...

    If you can't take the word of a chap who is overseeing the build of one and who has the official documentation from M-Sport, have you thought about contacting M-Sport direct and asking them? This would clear it up once and for all and get it off your mind.

    @MSportLtd

    Our hard work is paying dividends and the Fiesta WRC showed winning pace @RallySweden with five fastest stage times. We know the speed is there, and we're looking forward to seeing what's possible @RallyMexico!

    Actually M-Sport cars and drivers showed some good speed and I'm happy about it. Pity that the driver line-up is still too error prone. But hopefully they will improve. Overall a nice rally for them.
