    You should explain why.

    Yeah. Sure. But can´t resist.

    It´s easy. I think we both know why, as all others, they chose the fastest and most reliable car, even if it´s more expensive. Why buy a car for 220000 Euros and be 3rd when you can pay 250000Euros and win? Right?

    (don´t know anything about the current prices...)

    Basically yes, buying non competitive albeit cheap equipment equals throwing the money out of the window (except for special cases such as a wealthy gentleman driver who seeks to have fun with no ambitions).

    WRC2 Pro & WRC2 2019

    Not directly WRC2 related, but Gaurav Gill was involved in an accident in a rally in India, where a family of three was killed. Apparently they were riding a motorbike on the stage when Gill ran over them. Gill also got injured in the crash.

    Not the sort of news I enjoy passing on, but Guarav and co-driver Musa Sherif have been charged with culpable homicide.
