Calendar
Calendar changesEstonia and Mexico are dropped and replaced by new event in Latvia and returning Poland respectively.
 
Shakedown
Number of passages at shakedownP1 crews will complete a minimum of two passages of the shakedown, while the third pass will be available for a media or VIP passenger ride determined by WRC Promoter.
 
Sporting
Championship points: A complex new schemeChampionship scoring changed to a complex scheme awarding points for classification at the end of Saturday, points for classification for Sunday only and Power Stage points (unchanged).

Major portion of the points are scored for general classification at the end of Saturday as follows (to score, competitor must be classified in Final Classification, eg. finish the rally):

1st = 18 pts
2nd = 15 pts
3rd = 13 pts
4th = 10 pts
5th = 8 pts
6th = 6 pts
7th = 4 pts
8th = 3 pts
9th = 2 pts
10th = 1 pt


In addition, based on stage times for Sunday only, as follows:

1st = 7 pts
2nd = 6 pts
3rd = 5 pts
4th = 4 pts
5th = 3 pts
6th = 2 pts
7th = 1 pts


This change is supposed to end or at least lessen "cruising on Sunday" where drivers are taking it easy and saving tyres for Power Stage when differences between positions are large enough so that there is not enough incentive to risk pushing for better positions. Downside is points scheme that is complex and difficult to understand.
