    M-Sport-Ford is set to debut a modified rear wing on its Ford Pumas at next week's World Rally Championship round in Croatia.

    The British squad has been working on the aerodynamic performance upgrade since last year, before opting to delay its rollout until the 2024 season.

    Following a successful test last week, the team has confirmed that it plans to fit the new component to its cars for next week's asphalt rally. Drivers Adrien Fourmaux and Gregoire Munster each chalked up more than 250km of running during their pre-event test days.

    "Our plan is to introduce it in Croatia. Everything has gone okay with that, to be honest, and that was always the kind of date we were trying to aim for," M-Sport team principal Richard Millener told Autosport.

    "It [the rear wing] is not suddenly going to make us 10 seconds a kilometre faster. There are only small things you can do, and it is small tweaks that we are looking for at the moment.

    "This should help us in the higher speed stuff and combined with a couple of other set up changes, it can make a difference to the car. It is constant development, we are a little bit later than the other teams on the rear wing, but we are trying to stay as close as we can to the opposition."

    M-Sport Ford Puma has received a significant improvement this season.

    Ford has been able to test its car in a simulator in North Carolina, USA. This has brought a significant improvement in the car’s performance.

    Nice interview with Loubet

    https://rallysportmag.com/feature-pi..._kLF-ZuVmnvHda

    “Last year was a very different year I think for M-Sport, the atmosphere was much more different,” he begins. “This year I think everything is a bit more relaxed, they have Pablo [Marcos] in the team who is a new team manager who is I think very, very good and has changed a lot of things I think in the team, so it is I will say something I say all the time: ‘it is how it is’.

    “The only thing where I’m a bit disappointed, where I’m a bit frustrated is that me, I had a lot, a lot of problems last year – that is the truth and this year they found it. The car is more reliable, so that is a bit difficult.

    "Fourmaux just looks like the finished article now", says Rich Millener.

    I hope he didn’t curse him now

    But yeah he has been very impressive so far, also credit to the team with the cars reliability. Seems they have learned from the past two years and indeed made the right adjustments
