5 Minutes with … ex-Ford Motorsport manager Gerard Quinn

Gerard Quinn retired as the Senior Manager of Motorsport for Ford of Europe in December 2019, after a long and illustrious career.

In an exclusive interview with RallySport Magazine, Quinn says the WRC’s proposed hybrid rules due to enter the sport in 2022 don’t go far enough, and may introduce meaningless, out of date technology.

He also talks at length about Ford and M-Sport’s long-standing relationship in the WRC, fighting against Citroen, and why spending more money on a rally program won’t guarantee success.
