Henning chasing top five in Argentina

Henning Solberg says he needs a top-five finish in Argentina this weekend as he seeks to consolidate his position in the World Rally Championship standings.

The Stobart VK M-Sport driver heads to South America in fifth place in the standings, level on points with brother Petter in the championship race.

The elder Solberg suffered with damper problems during the Argentine event last year but has worked hard with team engineers to perfect the set up on his Focus for this weekend's event as he seeks to try and at least match the fifth place finish he took in the event two years ago.

“I'm really looking forward to Argentina and it's an event I always enjoy,” he said. “We have always set good times here in the past and usually I find it easier to get a good feeling with the car.

“We have concentrated hard on reviewing our settings from last year as I want to be able to have a good feeling with the car right from the start of the rally and be able to push hard from the very first stage.

“This will be an important rally and I need a top-five result to help maintain my position in the drivers' championship.”
