The all-new 2012 Ford Fiesta RS World Rally Carin its full new livery has been revealed ahead of the start of the championship in Monaco.

Ford World Rally Team director Malcolm Wilson and Ford Europe motorsport chief Gerard Quinn unveiled the livery for the eye-catching Fiesta RS WRC at the Autosport International Racing Car Show in Birmingham, central England.

Finland’s Jari-Matti Latvala and co-driver Miikka Anttila, who topped the World rankings for special-stage victories in 2011, have been confirmed as team leaders for 2012.


They will be partnered by former World champion Petter Solberg and Chris Patterson, who've signed a one-year agreement to drive the team’s second Fiesta.
