    Felt he would struggle, but clearly Ford was missing his type badly last year. It's only shakedown, I know. But the odds for him pulling a blinder and winning hands-down must have narrowed.
    With minimal testing and after two weeks in the desert.. extraordinary.

    Shakedown is shakedown. Can't read much into it in terms of who could win/ who could fight for podiums etc.

    However it's nice to see all 3 teams with a driver(s) on the 'pace' .

    This rally could be an absolute minefield with battery issues. Which is pot luck. Sometimes mechanical issues are down to stress a driver puts on components etc, but Tanak and Katsuta here are just the unlucky ones in shakedown so far.

    In racing at least they usually try to avoid auxiliary belts on the engines, don't really know whats the usual stratigie in rallying but maybe the power steering pump is powered remotly by electricity.

    Link also talks of the car's fuel they use.

    Gus second run is kind of respectable, given his first was ruined?
