Thierry Neuville says victory last time out in Sardinia acts as timely momentum heading to Rally Poland where he is confident of another strong result.
The Hyundai Motorsport driver grabbed an impressive second career World Rally Championship win at Rally d'Italia – despite running the second string squad – which reignited his 2016 campaign.
After mixed fortunes at the start of the year with a podium at Rallye Monte Carlo followed by two pointless outings in Sweden and Mexico the Belgium has got his campaign up and running and should again profit from a favourable starting position during the opening stages being seventh on the road.
“It was such a pleasure to win in Italy with the team and really celebrate such an amazing result,” Neuvile said. “We have had some tough times recently, but the victory was a boost in confidence for everyone.
“In 2014 in Poland we finished on the podium and last year we also had a reasonable run as well. We struggled a bit with the tyre choices but we learnt from it. I think this year, with the New Generation i20 WRC, we're going to be pretty fast.”
