The rover apparently is possibly detachable from its Russian lander. But this will require a new lander to be built as well as new launcher all this will cost more time and money. Plus it probably requires finding a new space partner. In other words the rover isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
Could ESA not launch the ExoMars rover on a different rocket Flyaway? There is always Ariane 6 or they could always use the SpaceX Falcon Heavy as an alternative.
