Cinghio44 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I quote Rubio and we need to say that not all the cars had the new ECU. That's why Hyundai felt penalised... The performance suddenly drooped massively!

In most other championships Hyundais were competitive as usual.

In 2019 BoP in WTCR and across all TCR championships was pretty decent by the end of the season, so I do hope they will sort out this ECU thing soon and ensure +- equality once again.

Btw, strange why there is so few info/or analysis on this common ECU thing, and how it will be implemented, especially in other TCR championships
VW ran the new ECU in a previous season as well. Thats one of the reasons the Golfs were nowhere, even with Huff behind the wheel. It just didn't like the bosch sensors that VW use. One of the nails in the coffin for VW and Audi dropping out.

Honda, Lynk & Co and Cupra also had new ECU. Only Audi, Renault and Alfa Romeo didn't have one.
