M-Sport's Elfyn Evans puts his Friday 'mishap' on Rally de Portugal behind him and sets some very encouraging times after re-joining under Rally 2.

Its all experience for him, the corner where he went off was very deceptive and it caught out few top drivers. It was Flat in 6th on the approach which is around 200KPH and looked to be what I would maybe call a right 2 light - drop outide !

When you do the Recce it would look less of a threat at just 50kph but its an aweful lot of speed to suddenly drop while still trying to carry the maximum speed possible through the corner itself, Meeke didn't even start to turn in by comparison, but did admit to having issues with his notes on that stage

Elfyn is doing extremely well and is mixing it with the Top drivers, some of his splits showed he had the speed in places, I think he will get faster and faster and grow in confidence and he could soon string together a batch of fastest splits later in the season to set his first WRC fastest stage time.
