Ford number two driver, Roman Kresta is feeling 'confident' in the build-up to the Rallye Deutschland this weekend, following a positive pre-event test last week.

The Czech completed two days of running - in mixed conditions - and was extremely happy with the performance of his Focus.

"If everything works well, then I'm confident that we can have a good result," said Kresta, despite having retired on both his previous outings in Germany.

"It's a difficult event with unpredictable weather but our pre-event test to determine car set-up was fantastic, with mixed weather conditions for two days, similar to those we've experienced in the past on this event. This was the first time we've tested the Focus RS WRC on asphalt and it was an incredible feeling."

As for re-uniting with his regular, co-driver, Jan Tomanek following a six-month break, Kresta reckons that this will not be a problem.

"Jan and I are looking forward to competing together again," he added. "The roads we will tackle on Sunday are very similar to those in the Czech Republic so we'll both feel at home there! Having competed here twice before, we have some good pace notes.

"I'm pleased that we will have a safety crew because tyre choice will be crucial and we want to be able to push really hard."
