Ford Focus ST estate driven in Russia

Even the ST can't handle this, so I about-turn and retreat to the slightly less offensively potholed, rutted and tramlined strip of asphalt of about a mile before. Little wonder that SUVs are the biggest-sellers over here.
The ST still makes sense in Russia. There are enough good surfaces to exploit its overwhelming... rightness. On ruralish roads closer to the city, with sweeping corners, I hold onto the steering wheel and throw it into bends as hard as I dare.
