Where do I start?
Rally Mexico is always a massive challenge for the crews… and the cars!
The conditions due to the altitude that we face here are almost impossible to recreate during our test sessions in Spain, and the cars are really put under strain.
If Thierry perfectly managed to limit our time loss due to our first position on the road on Friday, 2 punctures and mechanical issues quickly ruined our hopes to fight for the podium.
Therefore, we stayed focus (and believe me it’s not such an easy thing on the Mexican stages!) and we secured important points for the championship. Once again, I want to pay tribute to the whole team who did a fantastic job.
To give credit where credit is due, I must say that Seb Ogier and Julien Ingrassia really did an outstanding race. Hats off to them!
We are already focussing on Corsica, where we hope to be as successful as we were last year!
