    NO

    Current WRC are based on previous generations i20 and Yaris.

    Both Yaris GR-4 and i20N are current generation cars, so totally different body shape than WRC-spec.

    Yes, but only because the 2021 Yaris GR WRC car was scrapped. As for Hyundai, there were rumors of them making a facelifted WRC car as well...

    Really hope someone can. Even another one would feel incredible at the moment.
    The fact they’ve seemingly locked in the current three is actually incredibly good, considering, so I think it will basically push the sport into its next generation of regs and onwards hopefully.
    Looked rocky for a while.
    Surprised it’s seemingly worked out, but extremely happy.

    Yeah, but remember it's still just Dirffish rumors and we've even seen teams pull out when they are "commited" (remember VW 2016 or Citroen 2019). All thumbs must still be kept upwards.

    Not just rumours really. They wouldn’t have written the article unless they had signed. They wouldn’t have signed if they weren’t going to be there.
    It’s happening, against a lot of odds. Fantastic result.

    UK government has just confirmed a ban on the sale of new diesel/petrol only cars from 2030. Plug in hybrids given until 2035. I think that is a sensible compromise, it’s a good way to transition to full electric whilst gradually getting the infrastructure in place for charging and waiting for electric car costs to reduce and range to improve further.
