Overall, Rally de Portugal was a good event as always. I like everything about Portugal – the stages are great, there are loads of spectators and the atmosphere is always fantastic. This year, the weather could have been better though!
We now head to Argentina at the end of this month and as I am confident the car is the best, there will be no need to push to the limit or do anything rash early on. Basically we will do the same as always and hopefully it will pay off. The Fiesta RS WRC is really fast and it is easy to drive - it is a real pleasure to get behind the wheel. I can push a lot and I am just enjoying every minute in it and can't wait for the trip to South America.
Argentina is a great event. I love the stages and the atmosphere and number of spectators is unbelievable. There are some great restaurants in Carlos Paz too, so I'm looking forward to making the most of that.
We won't have any testing before, but that is not a worry, especially as it is the third gravel event of the season. I've been on the podium three times already in Argentina, but have never won. I'd like to change that in a few weeks time.
Until next time,
