    Where to next.....who knows. But it’s great to have the support of @MSportLtd at present. Motor sport can be cruel, but it is these highs and lows that makes us stronger and keeps bringing us back - fans and competitors alike. Best of luck to everyone competing this weekend. https://t.co/cZ0XsczfTi

    Even buying an R5 wouldn't cost 400k. The insurance thing is a big IF but this way his sponsors are getting no exposure for their investment. Driving an R5 would give at least something. And the race running cost of a WRC car is probably double the amount of an R5.

    Dude..

    Im talking financial exposure. running costs are not recoverable now. A 600k car is scrap, and running a R5 with no insurance has a further exposure of 400k.

    The car is not binned completely, it can be fixed with less cost than 600k...

    What parts do you think can be reused?

    Some small things perhaps. But even then only for customers and not for the factory cars, since they will never be able to guarantee their sturdiness again.

    No, that car is a total write off. You can salvage perhaps a few grand on helmet nets, pencil holders and some elektrical buttons, but everything else will have had too much of an impact to use again.

    I believe Msport works like their own insurance company. I'm not sure, perhaps somebody knows better than me, but here's what i think:

    Instead of letting their customers pay someone else 30.000€ or whatever for the insurance, they just charge those 30k to their customers and take the risk themselves.

    Which usually makes them more money since they produce all the parts and cars are rarely a total write off. Just because they ask 10 grand for some parts doesn't mean it costs them that much to build it.

    Only in case of fire or a very hard crash like this, they lose money compared to when they would have external insurance.

    Looks like some seriously bad luck. Can't blame the driver.

    That said it's not like the team bosses will hire him based on a hypotetical result.
