    to me, it sounds weird only on hairpins, the faster parts feel surprisingly "normal".

    For once Matton is right: there’s no way full EV’s could get into the WRC without a major downscaling of the events, turning the series into a joke.

    Anyway it’s useless to compare a 6 laps/4 minutes WRX race on a circuit of around 1km with the normal length/duration of a WRC stage and suggest that full EV’s are ready for the WRC; they aren’t and they wont be any time soon.

    Still seems way more questions than answers for 2022.

    “And, from what we see from the early numbers, the battery and motor and all the new parts in the car is going to add a lot of weight. When you also take away the [center] diff and the changes coming in the suspension, I think it could be losing time to an R5 car in some places.”
    It has already happened on super specials (or remember what Huttunen did on the Torsby stage in 2019)...I wouldn't be worried about this.
