"it was also encouraging to have seven Fiesta RS WRCs in the top ten"

Huh, flat lot of good if your not winning rallies.

Not much has changed at Ford since the rear suspension collapsed on my shed of a Sierra saphire on the RAC rally.

Henry Ford philosophy has been "Ford is 'good' car which most of the people can afford". That pretty much seems to reflect in WRCar development. Ford has long history in all kind of races, especially Rally, but they focus on selling cars instead of actually invest bucket loads of cash to make a "winner" car as the French do.
