The World Rally Championship kicks off this weekend and every team has been out testing on the freezing roads around Monte Carlo. We have our eyes on Jari-Matti Latvala in a factory Ford Fiesta RS, so watch him tear through the scenery in beautiful high-def.
Ford is losing a lot for the 2012 rally season. Their lead driver Mikko Hirvonen is defecting to archrival Citroën and Ford's longtime sponsor, Abu Dhabi, is leaving, too. At least Ford has a pretty new paintjob for its WRC Fiesta, courtesy of Castrol Oil.
It was a 1-2-3 finish for the WRC Ford Fiestas at Rally Sweden, asserting their dominance with the new 1600 cc turbocharged four-wheel drive cars. First and second place were separated by just 6.5 seconds. (Photo: Getty Images)
