M-Sport Ford is being one of the most active teams in recent months. The English team is currently preparing for the 2022 season, the first with the hybrid Rally1 in the World Rally Championship. The brand has shared the first images of the car on social networks with this text.
“Having completed testing in all weather conditions here in the UK, we’re about to start the next phase of our 2022 research and development. Watch this space as the next step of hybrid-era testing gets underway!”
Everything seems to indicate that, in the absence of official confirmation or last minute changes, the Fiesta continues to be the model chosen by the brand for this new era. Rumors placed Puma as the main favorite in winter, but it seems that it will not be like that.
These are the photos of the car:
Toyota and Hyundai have also confirmed their presence during the coming season, which will star in an absolute revolution in the cars of the highest category of rallying. We have to wait to see how effective these models are compared to their predecessors, the current WRCs.
