Prodrive focussed on 2013 MINI campaign

    “(…) Despite MINI ceasing direct financial support for its works team in the WRC”. And what was that, exactly? Come on, Prodrive would be better off developing the MINI for circuit racing or focus on the ERC. The WRC is an ever-evolving scenario where the amount of € makes all the difference. VW and soon Hyundai will make Ford and the PSA Group run for they money (literally). OK, they have a performing engine. And what about those eternally unfixed power steering issues? And the overeheating, etc.? The thing is, Prodrive will never win WRC rallies, surely not on tarmac, anyway. And they won’t be able to lure the best drivers out there (though it would be nice to give Juho Hanninen a chance to show himself). So, what’s the catch?

    “Not on gravel”, I meant to say.
