    I think that they completely defunct VW Motorsport department. I guess Kristoffersson's ''VW'' is not run by factory, but localy. Shame, because they were so successful in anything they enter. Still don't know why they even produced 2017 WRC car and later that R5. Think that it was not that popular at all.

    Is he doing some WRC2 program this year? think Croatia could be good for him also!
    After his performance on Monte last year, this year result was not so big surprise. He was planning to do WRC2 also last year, but after issues with his driving licence, he was forced to "postpone" plans. This year he is planning to do full WRC2 (7 races) and spanish championship. In WRC2, as he is more tarmac than gravel driver, his next planned start is in Croatia.

    All of this is result of "green politics"...

There are for sure more similar cases like that.
    The Astra TCR comes to mind.

    You have a private development and a factory development. Without going into details what exactly Wevers sport developed it makes little sense to argue about but I doubt that what they could do could be on a factory level of development at least in terms of quantity of the upgrades.
