    Tom Fowler says they've made suspension parts lighter in order to reduce mass from each corner of the car. And this was tested by Hänninen in Sardegna.

    EDIT: Wasn't paywall after all.

    Written like that the explanation does sound counter-intuitive. Preparing for rough rally by making suspension lighter..... then again those changes are meant for increasing grip.

    Sounds like the engineers were maybe a tiny little bit sceptical but all 3 drivers unanimously chose these improvements to be implemented for increased performance. Must have been reliable on the test as well (plus in Sardinia with Juho), but whether that holds true in the rally will remain to be seen.
