Hyundai to improve suspension after issues
Hyundai will implement suspension upgrades ahead of next month’s Rally Argentina following a double failure on Hayden Paddon’s i20 WRC and trouble on the sister car of Thierry Neuville.
The Leon-based event was the first gravel outing for Hyundai’s all-new i20 and Paddon admitted he was surprised at how fragile the suspension arms turned out to be.
“For no reason – OK we went wide and hit a bank – but under normal circumstances you wouldn’t expect to break a suspension arm,” said the Kiwi. “This will be addressed. It’s not a problem – it will be sorted for the next rally.”
Team manager Alain Penasse said the parts would be studied when the team got back to base in Frankfurt.
