    How would you even come to a thought that noise is not important?
    I would, because except for the speed perception there's also the smell of brakes, pebbles being thrown around; sliding tyres will be easier to hear/notice too.
    And of course laying and drinking under the shadows, people do it with bycicles tours too.

    That's so true... their ALS was totally brutal !

    So it is almost guaranteed that by 2022 the cars will be Hybrids. Thankfully not fully electric.

    In Rally Finland most team bosses expressed their feelings:

    It is interesting to see that for most in charge full electric is not a viable option neither will be in the medium term, however it is also interesting to see some, specially Nandan, considering other types of alternatives other than electric.

    It sounds like a mild hybrid system using a 48v electric supercharger, like Valeo’s e4Boost: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtJr2LHgLhI
