    I think there were a few talks initially that teams could develop their own hybrid systems, but last I heard of that was around a year ago. Considering the state of the championship, Msports difficulties, the need for teams to run more cars etc, it wouldve been a silly extra expense at this stage.

    Plus, no doubt it would've just resulted in an another way for Toyota to gain an advantage on Hyundai and Msport...

    Agree yes, but the change to manufacturer developed units would've been to late now.

    This news probably confirms there won't be any new manufacturers joining the championship before 2027.

    not necessarily, due to the subaru-toyota partnership, a subaru car could be some sort of rebranded blue yaris with different aesthetic.

    So, to be honest, noone would notice and no manufacturer would leave or join if hybrid unit was removedů Hybrid is totally useless.

    Maybe, but Evans would have been retired without the Hybrid in Greece.

    proposal from Rich Millener:

    team to have 2 rally1 + 1 rally2 of a "junior" manu team to score for championship points.

    Just 6 Rally1s, what's Ogier going to do, leave 3/4 drivers going for the championship?

    To be fair there isn't much detail there but doesn't sound sensible at all.

    i think you misread... it will not affect team size. why only 6 rally1? a team can have 3 or 4 like now, and get points from the top 2, exactly like now. point is adding a junior team with as many car as you please, and top car get points for manus championship. it's a good idea to have youngsters in works team, and get attention on support championships.
