Hayden Paddon again impressed in the Hyundai i20 WRC finishing fourth while team mate Thierry Neuville scored sixth - despite a spectacular roll in this morning’s opening stage.
Paddon said: “It’s been a pretty good weekend for us overall and I’m pleased we have been able to secure another strong finish. It wasn’t the most straightforward rally in terms of finding a rhythm and confidence within the car on the fast gravel but we have persevered and can be satisfied. Obviously, there’s always room for improvement and things we can do to go faster, but considering the new routes on this rally things have gone well. The team has worked hard and a four-car finish is a good result for everyone.”
Neuville commented: “It’s been a pretty good weekend overall and I think we have to be pleased with all we have achieved. We have shown some good pace over the weekend and have only really been hurt by some incorrect tyre choices at times. This morning wasn’t what we wanted when we rolled the car. I don’t really know what happened but we were very lucky to be able to continue and finish the rally.”
