    That is only single thing which is about i20 (all rest of story and all pictures are i10) and that makes you think: Hyundai is building new WRC, I´m not that good in reading between lines than you are.
    1. Takes from the quoted article:
    - there is a new i10 coming
    - there is a new i20 coming

    You got it now as well after denying it...

    2. tomhlords opinion:
    "I believe Hyundai is making a new WRC...

    It's his opinion.

    I can't believe they would do it for only two more seasons scheduled with the current regulations. Would FIA even allow new models anymore?

    Well, they created one car for one year only in 2016.

    Another possibility is Hyundai ( if they stay in wrc) would be to have a 2 year development program for a new i20 2022 hybrid wrc car, so they don't go into the hybrid-wrc series with an under developed car or to spread the hybrid wrc development program workload with an on going wrc competition program.

    (I'll post rally Di Alba Loeb stuff here instead of huden in the Italian section)

    Check out Loeb on the start of the vid:

    That's a style you'd expect from Galli on tarmac. Maybe they switched with the guy from the DS3 at 2:20.

    this is the way you have to drive with that car, exactly like Neuville does, sliding around, its a miracle for me how he doesnt destroy his tyres with it

    Yes that's my point, either he is trying it to see what it does or he already gave up
    trying to adapt the car and goes for Neuville's style instead. (Mikkelsen came to this conclusions after Spain last year)

    Problem is that with this kind of driving it is on pure speed typically slower than at least 2 Toyotas, at least one Fiesta (Evans) and sometimes even than C3.

    Putting it on 4-5 place unless others have issues, which luckily for Neuville they often do.

    In Corsica Evans, Tänak and Meeke were faster than Neuville, in Spain last year Loeb (in C3), Ogier (Fiesta), Evans, Tänak and Latvala were all faster.

    Did you see the DS3?
    Also there are now multiple vids from the SD from multiple corners, same story. One or often both DS3s drive clean while Loeb goes sideways.

    Digged out the vid of Neuville from Corsica that EstWRC found:
