Matador should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

Yup. Changes between between 21 and 22 spec were the tyre size swap and aero modifications to adapt for the change.

A little more explanation from PV via enduance info;
"We had to reduce the weight of the car (by 70 kg in an ideal world), which we did for the most part, but not completely", Pascal Vasselon reminds us. "We had no other choice. But the problem is that by doing so we lost control of the front-to-back mass distribution because we had no ballast at all. The weight ended up being much more on the rear than expected. This is why the car was no longer suitable for the 31 cm wide tyres at the front and rear (it is now 29/71-18 at the front and 34/71-18 at the rear). The change of tyre mount in the 2021-2022 off-season allowed us to remedy this in part. A big evolution which led us to modify the bodywork a little.

So I suppose no ballast at all for the previous spec. The "Evo" spec has lost more weight, but is it less than 1000kg? Not so sure.

Makes me all the more interested in what Peugeot is doing for '24! I wonder if the changes are wholesale or a lil evo. Looking forward to seeing what winter brings.
