“It was a hard weekend, but despite my technical troubles, I finished in the points and I'm relieved to be here,” Latvala reflected. “I had a good pace and targeted the bonus points in the Power Stage, but it just wasn't our rally. The Greek Gods were not looking after me at all here.”
In terms of retirements, the Acropolis claimed a number of scalps, including WRC runners Federico Villagra
and Peter van Merksteijn Jr, the former stopping in the penultimate test today due to an engine problem, while the latter crashed out in SS3. Mads Ostberg
and Evgeny Novikov
also had problems, but both managed to get to the finish under the SupeRally, finishing 12th and 20th respectively.
The WRC now pauses for a mid-season break before resuming with Rally Finland, which runs from July 28-30.
