Toyota Gazoo Racing wrc team is in Mexico without an important Software update.

There were storms in Central Europe, and we had our days locked up already last year. We were supposed to have a software rating before the Rally Sweden, but the International Automobile Federation (FIA) men couldn’t fly because of the strong wind, Mäkinen said.

Only after rally Mexico that the International Automobile Federation (FIA) Will come sort the classification of the new software. Now we’re left biting our fingers because the software was supposed to come to Mexico. It would have been an important reform in Mexico as we would have liked to have had a soft experience of high altitude. It’s a shame, Mäkinen said.

It would have been a little extra reform, but it went a long way. It was quite a disappointment for us, added the team boss.

The Leon-based Rally Mexico will start on Friday Morning, East African Time time, this rally provides a considerable contrast for the teams and drivers. It is usually one of the warmest events of the season, with temperatures expected to reach thirty degrees Celsius over the weekend, and is also the highest round on the calendar, with the route climbing to 2737m above sea level. At such altitude,the thinner air reduces engine power by as much as 20 per cent.
