    This is why in multiple fields it's sometimes better not try to hide things.

    Anyway Toyota has similar ones, even bigger. So the question is what they are for? Battery cooling since the battery is in the rear? More importantly...where does the air go afterwards?

    Maybe Hyundai were trying to confuse matters and dont want to show how far behind the other teams they are with their development ?

    The i20N looks very basic and could still be at the stage M-Sport were in March, with no hybrid power and just ballast instead of batteries and e-motor.

    I am glad you verify that I see correctly. It seems they are significantly slower. But if the gap is small between Rally1 and Rally2, what is the point in having two categories?

    Yes it is. This is why the words "It seems" and "if" are in what I wrote.

    I don't get why he means with:
    "The 2022 regs take away many of the things that help the driver, with things like the centre differential, the aerodynamics and the fancy front and rear differentials."

    What is so fancy with current front and rear difs? They are not active like they used to be in 2006 or so.

    Anyway what I do hope and what likely was the goal is that the reduction of "setting possibilities" reduces the benefit of using tons of money on testing (simply because there is less settings to test)
    As this likely is the area that caused large part of the gap between MSport and Hyundai/Toyota lately.

    fancy front and rear diffusers would make more sense.. maybe a typo?

    not a typo,he was talking about differentials,and not many choices about different ramps.
    He talked about just 2 different diff setups for ALL drivers.
    so all the drivers of one team,they will not have the ''optimum'' setup at differentials as they like.
    They have to drive with the given setup,which maybe is a compromise.
    So imho will be a big factor which drivers prefered setup,will be prefered from a team to homologate.
