Tight schedule here in Corsica, I’ll keep it short this time, I hope you’ll forgive me
This really is a special rally for us. It is where Thierry and I drove our second rally together, and it is also the place of our first international victory.
As soon as you land on this island, you understand why people call it the Island of beauty. It’s simply stunning: turquoise sea, mountains and the most incredible roads… a proper playground for rally crews!
Corsica is also a very demanding race, with all the different types of asphalt you can think about, thousands of corners, very long stages and an incredibly high rhythm. To sign a good result here, you need a perfect cohesion between the driver and the co-driver.
From the very first stage, we decided to give it everything. We were really pushing hard everywhere… but we quickly realized that fighting for the win would prove really difficult, no matter how hard we pushed.
Despite this, I really must say that I was really impressed with Thierry’s driving… it was quite simply impossible to do more.
At the end, we finish on the podium. We would have wanted more, but it still is a positive result. The championship is still very long and this third place allow us to remain in the battle for the title. It’s all that matters.
We are now focussing on Argentina, another mythical rally.
