    Well in Turkey it shouldn't matter much except on that one stage. But come GB and especially Spain it should matter. Suddenly Fiesta comes up as clear favourite for Spain, but we don't know how much they had to change their wing.

    Bit it's not going to make Toyota so much slower than the others, it can't be the only thing that was making them faster than the others so far. Nothing too dramatic will change, I suppose.

    Maybe, maybe not so much.
    You would think that an item that aids aerodynamics more like a windscreen would make more difference, but both Meeke and Latvala have proved in the past not so much!

    I'm not an expert in aerodynamics, but I would guess the windscreen affects more the top speed and acceleration, whereas the rear wing affects cornering speed, and I think the latter is more important in rallying.

    Possibly, but wing surely has to be more of an effect in high speed cornering rather than low speed, where lack of screen will also be a factor.
    It would be like running with a plastic bag held behind you, you can see the effect wind has on the carrier bag causing drag, would be the same as a car with no windscreen.

    For sure the roughest stage of the rally, but only parts of it are like that.

    I keep seeing the gear shift as a beer bottle with a red cap. Maybe I just need a beer.
