    So Manu's can use a production bodyshell if it suits them and is the size required.

    If M-Sport 'chooses' the Puma they will have to scale it all down, whereas if they chose a Focus they could just use a production bodyshell.

    You mentioned the point yourself. It's hybrid. The manufacturers will want to push hybrid models in the WRC. Most likely Hyundai will go to the Kona. Yaris already has a hybrid option.
