That's like saying any new team that hires experienced personnel isn't really new on the basis of prior knowledge.

not really. there's no period of getting to know each other, getting used to the management structure, finding out who's good at what, and who works well with whom. it's more than just the individual experience of the team members. it's an experienced team.

Except there has been a massive rules change and Subaru pulled out 2 years ago. Prodrive haven't been building WRC spec cars for a while, so I doubt it's a pre-existing team from the Subaru days as they wouldn't have needed that level of staffing in their rally department.

I can't imagine any team that builds a WRC car would truly be new. VW will probably pull a lot of the Dakar team over to their WRC program, so they will all be used to working together on a similar sized project. I'd still consider them new, but by your definition they aren't either.
