    Not really a surprise - they are the corporate colours, in use for all the motorsport teams.

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    Yep, didn't expect the colours to change as they are Gazoo racing colours, but the design could've changed. Very dull. I also expected to see a little red bull branding on the car somewhere. Shame that Red Bull haven't put that funding into Msport, or help fund a PH sport run Citroen private team with some of Mads' funding + other pay drivers.

    Makinen said the car looks the same but will be lighter and more powerful.

    Toyota GR Yaris revealed in full – return of the homologation special.

    "Why go to all the effort and expense of re-engineering things such as the roofline and axles for a homologation special? Gazoo Racing’s 2020 Yaris WRC car differs so much from the standard Yaris that this homologation model will need to be produced. In contrast to old Group N WRC rules, which required a limited number of closely related road-going examples to be produced in order to comply (think early Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution or Subaru WRX), today’s rules allow a wider chasm between the road and rally versions. However, venture outside these limitations, as Toyota Gazoo Racing has done, and a large production run is required to homologate the race car.

    As such, the GR Yaris will not be limited to just a few hundred units, instead Toyota will need to produce a full 25,000 next year in order to comply with WRC regulations."

    I still really wish there'd been a secondary 'Red Bull Toyota GR (Junior)' team, if only for Kalle in a 4th full season car, but Katsuta could have been in a second points scoring car in that team, with Al-Attiyah possibly doing the Safari in that team too (Turkey too?). Whoever then didn't get the 3rd drive in the main team out of Meeke and Latvala (probably the latter?) could have done the few rounds that Katsuta (and possibly Al-Attiyah) wouldn't be doing...

    For all the talk about extra cars, Tommi surely had the best opportunity to run more cars and didn't take it.

    So after a decade someone built a car which came directly from the past of 90' and the first thing people start to do is crying that it has only three cylinder engine like if that was actually important.

    Come on, plenty of people spent years writing on this board how the gr.A cars were the best thing ever so be happy that someone decided to go against the trend and introduced this thing from the past. It's here and it's real. Maybe no other car like that will ever follow... Cheers.
