    That's called a 'test'. An counts towards the regulatory maximum number of days. It's not much of a secret when it has to be declared to the FIA!
    What if he was testing the R5 car or something? Or more likely something that's under the development in secrecy?

    He's driven the R5 car at Rally Estonia. In public... Not much secrecy there.

    Teemu drove a Yaris from what I've heard, but maybe it's just a rumor...

    This may be the correct answer.

    Making a test mule for the hybrid era is not complicated if the gas engine stays the same. Testing the balance and effect of the extra weight.

    It is if the hybrid system comes from a single supplier and that single supplier deal hasn't even been put to tender yet!

    Well at least someone on this forum assumed the "secret test" was in Puuppola before Teemu confirmed it was an M-Sport test.

    But surely it doesnt count if he's testing another car not his WRC ?

    Every test day must be informed to FIA, even those "secret" ones. FIA just keep that info for them self.

    Suninen has driven Yaris but it was not before NRF19, way earlier...
